Iv'e been lurking for a while and i'm so glad I finally get to share my success! I passed the A+ certification yesterday with a score of 810 and 706. Talk about cutting it close on the 802. It took me three months to study. I used the Mike Myers passport book backed up with exam cram to strengthen my weak areas, Messer videos, and of course the transcender practice exams. I highly suggest strictly using the Exam Cram book or Mike Myers 8th edition full comprehensive book if you are new to A+ and have the time to go through them properly. I'll be moving on the network + next then decide where I wan't to go from there.
