Which of these two books?

Hey everyone!
So it looks like I might not be able to switch to a 4-year university after community college, so I've decided to redouble my certification efforts. Anyway, I can't decide between these two books for the test:
CompTIA A+ 220-801 & 220-802 Authorized Cert Guide, Deluxe Edition
CompTIA A+ Complete Deluxe Study Guide: Exams 220-801 and 220-802, 2nd Edition

The Sybex book is CompTIA Recommended, which may mean nothing at all in terms of whether it will help me or not. But I've been helping one of my professors pilot Cengage's authorized Security+ cert guide and its kind of meh. So I'm leaning towards Sybex. Does anyone have experience with either of these books? As much as I'm concerned with passing the cert; I'm also concerned with retaining as much as possible and learning all I can, so I don't want a book that will just get me through the A+. I'm also picking up this ExamCram book.

If anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it!

    I've got both - and they're both great. Sybex reads much more formal and textbook-like, and Meyer's is much more conversational and simplified. Whichever style suits you better!
