Looking to start studying for CompTIA A+
I am almost finished with this semester and want to do something productive over the summer, outside of summer classes. My username explains my IT experience/knowledge but I am ready and motivated to get my foot in the door and I feel it is necessary since I am planning on getting a bachelors in CIS. So I guess my question is, what should my first steps be in tackling this goal (getting A+ certified)? I have read a few post and saw that the most popular books are Mike Meyers and the Jean book as well as ExamCram so I figure I'll need to pick one of those up, but my real question is, do I need to look into buying a cheap experimental PC for hands on training? If so where is the best place I could find one? Any and all input is appreciated!
