Any beliefs that the current CompTIA® A+ tests are "easy" are sadly mistaken. This work started as an update for the two ExamInsight books created by Tcat Houser, et al. The sheer size and page count of this work should be a hot tip that the A+ certification exams 220-301 and 220-302 are many things. The word "easy" does not fit the A+ Certification Test.
Thanks to the Internet and hard working SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS (SMEs), this work contains vast amounts of data about the A+ Certification Test and getting an A+ Certification online or offline. Think of this title as "the missing link" for the new A+ certification series.
The nature of the new tests requires a new approach. A+ 4 REAL is the new approach. Written in a conversational style you interact with experts from the Pacific Northwest to Europe and beyond.
This work was created for
- A+ Certification Training and the countless people who have done a "reconnaissance mission" on the Operating System test (220-302), and for those who don't want to follow in that path.
- The PC user who is trying to understand what is going on "under the hood" or is looking for some really good tricks and tips.
A few chapters are included that are not required for the current A+ tests, and are very helpful in that bigger test called REAL LIFE. Therefore you are encouraged to pay close attention to the discussions on LINUX and MACINTOSH. The light-hearted work from your Safety SME enlightens you on protecting yourself from a fate worse than death.
It has taken a great number of person-years to produce A+ 4 REAL. The SME'S were given the freedom to write style. The end result is a work you won't want to put down.
