I passed my 300 series A+ exam the first time after studying this book and the practice exams. Not that the 300 series has been retired, but that I passed my exam on June 29, 2007; the day before the 300 series exams were to retire! Sybex is the best guide to use to prepare for other certification exams.

The standard companion CD contains an advanced testing engine with adaptive testing capabilities, electronic flashcards for PCs and Palm devices, and the complete book in PDF format

It readies you for the A+ exams, yet entirely skips some of the lesser-tested sections.

Delirium
I passed both exams relying solely on this book. However, I nearly tanked on the O/S test b/c the book just barely covers Windows XP, which accounts for 60% of the O/S exam (directly or indirectly). And, like someone else pointed out, I would have certainly failed had I not had 5+ years in IT behind me. If you are inexperienced or not sure about yourself, don't rely on this book due to the complex nature of Windows XP. You'll do fine with the hardware, although there is a lot of fluff that would waste your time. For the O/S part though, Windows XP *should* have had its own section in the book with a detailed discussion. Since, this book failed to do it, not to mention the many typos and logical errors of a critical nature, the only recourse for the unfortunate Comptia A+ candidate is to dole out some additional cash for a book dedicated to Windows XP.

Not to be completely bitter about my experience though, I aced the hardware section with this book. And, that's saying a lot for a guy who only did software up to this point. That's my 2c on it.

I passed both exams with scores of 875 (Hardware) and 913 (OS). This book helped me, but not all the information is available. It took me two times to pass the OS exam. The most important aspect of studying for the exams is taking practice exams. The more questions you encounter, the better you'll understand the test. I would recommend this book as a first read, than move on to something more technical. Mike Meyer's A+ Passport is a good book to have.

So far this book seem to be a great refresher

First off, so you know where I'm coming from, I am a somewhat severe computer geek. I've been working with PC hardware for 10 years (18 if you include TRS-80s and Apple II series). I just took the A+ because the certification is required for some jobs.
Overall, I felt the book was OK for the Hardware Core test. It was severely lacking on the OS part. I think personal experience really helped me on this. I have next to no Windows 2000 experience, and I've only glanced at a few books while considering study guides to update my MCSE. Fortunately, there was a nice balance of DOS and other versions of Windows.
My copy of this book must be an earlier edition because it did not have the corrections listed on the Sybex web site. The quickest way to tell if it's the earlier edition is to look at page 622. The last choice for question 8 lists the answer for the question.
I was cringing at various details as I read this book. Most of the parts that annoyed me should not affect the test outcome. I've already submitted corrections for some of these. On page 64, he says ISA slots are brown. On the hundreds of PCs I've worked on and built, ISA slots have always been black. EISA and VLB slots are brown. It's minor stuff like that. In the OS part of the book, I can understand leaving some details out so it doesn't get confusing for people who aren't familiar with the OS. For example, he does not mention every way of shutting down Windows. He focuses on using Shut Down from the Start Menu, but in Windows 9x, you can hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and select Shut Down. I mention this one because there is a question in the book about shutting down Windows and Ctrl-Alt-Del is one of the choices. If that were the answer, it should add "...and click on Shut Down." You could argue that that is not the complete process and therefore it's wrong. This brings me to my next problem with the book.
I hate most of the questions in the book. Sometimes the answers are very clear, and other times, the answers might be only part of the process like in my gripe in the above paragraph. I hate the wording of most of the questions. It often left minor details out so I often had to second guess what they were really asking. I might have been thinking too hard too. :) However, I found questions on the real test to be vague too at times, but not as bad.
I primarily used this book and a study guide at brainbuzz.com to prepare for these tests. I passed both tests by more than 140 points, and I know this book did help with that even with my gripes.
NOTE: I recently saw a new edition of this book at a local book store - Deluxe Edition, I think. I quickly glanced at the description for the ISA slot. The error is still there. That's the easiest one to look for. Sybex was unable to contact the author when I reported these errors to them.

A+ has come out with new exams and keeping up with the changes requires you to have the best possible reference material at your fingertips. David Groth has once again taken the opportunity to make sure that the newest A+ Exams are covered and covered completely.
Groth has updated his already successful book to meet or exceed every exam objective. He also included an objectives quick reference card right in the front the book. Groth's expertise is very evident in this book and this book should be very helpful for a great number of people.
In part 1 of the book, which covers the first 10 chapters, the Core hardware objectives are tackled. Topics like system boards, memory, storage, pc memory, disk system architecture, bus architecture, peripherals, printing, networking foundations and troubleshooting are given complete and detailed coverage.
In part 2, the Operating Systems Technologies, you are exposed to the OSI model, Windows 9.X, NT, 2000 professional, network software, applications support and operating system troubleshooting. Groth makes sure that the book is more than the usual A+ manual, far more.

The book includes review questions at the end of each chapter. Also included is the CD-rom with chapter tests, random testing, an e-book, flash cards and 4 bonus exams. As with other books written by David Groth you get more than you expect and this book is a definitive rival to all others out there.
