Starting to study for Net+. Which book should I choose?

Fresh off the back of passing the A+, i'm going to start towards my Net+.
For A+, I used the Mike Meyers book, Exam Cram and Professor Messers videos.


For Net+, I will definitely be using an Exam Cram book and Professor Messers videos, but I didn't particularly like the Mike Meyers book for A+.


The two options I have at the moment for the main resource to learn from would be 'Mike Meyers Net+ sixth edition' or the 'Todd Lammle, Sybex 3rd Edition book' (http://tinyurl.com/zuu3p3g).


I guess what I'd like to know is if anybody has any experience with the Sybex book and whether they would recommend it over the Mike Meyers book?

    I have both Mike Meyers' A+ and Net+ books. I got about halfway through his A+ book and quit because I found it incredibly tedious (too basic). The Net+ book started off the same way for the first couple of chapters but actually got pretty good after that. I finished it up last week and I think he did a good job covering the exam objectives. I've read a few chapters in Lammle's Net+ book as well and it also seems like a good resource. I don't think you can go wrong with either.

    Thanks for clearing this up. I think I will go with the Lammle's Net+ book, because as you said, the Mike Meyer's A+ book is very tedious.
    I'll let this thread play out as I'd love to hear a few more opinions.

    Would anybody else care to weigh in before I purchase the Sybex book?
    I'd like to hear your opinions about the two books if possible.

    Thanks.
