Hello,

I got a copy of All in One A+ Certification Exam guide 5th edition ISBN 0072229918. I know there is a 6th edition out and was wondering whats the difference between two? Can i still use the 5th edition or i'm i better off getting the 6th edition?

    Yes you can still use the 5th but the 6th would help it has some new tech terms in it over the 5th. you would be better off geting one of the A+ books from sybex over going to the 6th ed of meyers All in one.
    the more points of view the better and they both have very diferent ways of showing you things, so if you dont get the one you should the other.

    Yes.

    You'd want to compare the older objectives to the current ones and KNOW the items on the Current objectives. So it may mean a little leg work for you, but you can fill in most of the info from the book.

    However, it is typically a good plan to have at least 2 books to reference as authors explain things differently and sometimes seeing items in different formats proves helpful. FWIW

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?
