I just passed A+ a week ago, but it took me a year lol.. Anyways, does anyone know any good book for the net+? Let's say $$$ is not an issue here but time is, I need a book that can help me pass in 1-2 months of constantly study. :)

Thank in Advance,
Tristan

    I would recommend you read peoples posts of who passed. They typically list their resources.

    The common ones are CBT Nuggets, TrainSignal (Pluralsight), and some book (Either Sybex or exam cram).

    Hope this helps! ^^
    Kindly doing the needful

    Although not officially N+ certified yet, my book of choice for the Network+ was Mike Meyers book. It's very detailed and I highly recommend it for anyone new to the networking world. Professor Messer's videos are straight to the point and could/should be added as a supplement to a book. He has live study groups every month for the N+ as well. Another option is Keith Barker's CBT Nuggets series. His goofyness (and smarts) made the videos fun to watch for me. There is a plethora of training material available, so like LittleBIT mentioned, take a look at previous threads and see what worked for them. Then choose something that fits your style of learning. Good luck!

    I would recommend the Mike Meyers Network+ book, Professor Messer's videos (free) and lastly if needed, the Exam Cram. Those are the 3 sources I personally used.

    It took me a long time to pass the A+ too, even tho I took it AFTER my Net+ and Sec+. But I passed both the Net+ and Sec+ after just a few weeks. As long as you study everyday it shouldn't take you as long.

    Good luck!

    Mike Meyers' CompTIA Network+ Certification Passport, Third Edition: Glen Clarke, Michael Meyers: 9780071615303: Amazon.com: Books

    What do you guys think? It's only 4 dollars. If it's not the right book, please let me know or give me a link to the right book.

    Amazon.com: CompTIA Network+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, 5th Edition (Exam N10-005) eBook: Michael Meyers: Books

    That's the book you'll want. It's not 4 dollars, but trust me it's worth it. If price is a problem, maybe someone on the forum can sell you their used copy direct.

    The passport series is a shorter version of his main book. It's essentially Mike Meyers version of an Exam Cram. His All-In-One series, altho longer, has more info and would most likely make it easier for you to pass.

    Additionally, the version you linked to is out of date is for an older version of the Net+ exam. That wouldn't cover all of the current objectives.

    I agree, those videos are fantastic, if you are looking for a followup to polish a few details take a look at this book: Mike Meyers’ CompTIA Network+ Certification Passport, 4th Edition, I'm reading it now after watching his video series, and this book helps put some polish on the content, or the other Exam Cram people recommend on here, I don't have the exam cram but it's highly recommended.
