    "Good Starter"

    This book is great to familerize yourself with some of the content needed on the A+ test. It obviously cant include everything, but its a good starting point to see if you are up to the challenge, or if you need to brush up on your skills a bit more.

    "Better than Nothing..."

    Since technology and computer books seem to be rare in audiobook format, it's hard not to be happy that this title is even available in the first place. Unfortunately, it's not going to be even close to enough to get you to pass the test. Please get yourself some physical study materials, and invest in some classes or at least get some hands-on practice time. However, I do think this title will work well as a part of a larger, more rounded study plan for the test--either as a basic refresher course/overview, or as a study tool to help drill certain things into your head. What this book is bad with is not giving you enough cold, hard facts. An audiobook is the perfect format for flash-card style memorization and practice questions. Imagine driving to work while also taking an A+ practice test. You hear a question, are given the possible answers verbally, and are allowed time to think before the correct answer and a detailed explanation follow. Such a tool would be powerful and useful, but this is not it. This book lacks the details and numbers that test-takers often get stumped on. While not perfect, it is the only tool open to you so far on Audible and it's much better than nothing. I just wish publishers would recognize the power of audiobooks, not just as a translation from written text, but as a medium in and of themselves--especially for test preparation. I hope to see more titles like this on Audible, and perhaps even some original offerings designed specifically for a new generation of students and professionals who study not with pens and pads, but with laptops and digital media players.

    "Not enough info"

    I listened to this book six times and then took a practice test and failed. Lots of good info just not enough to prepare you for the test.

    "No longer relevant"
    Would you try another book from Christopher Parker and/or Todd Schick?

    Perhaps. This book was probably incredibly useful back when people used Windows Vista.


    What could Christopher Parker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing. He was fine.


    What three words best describe Todd Schick’s performance?

    Fine. It's a tech book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mastering the CompTIA A+?

    Clearly these questions weren't formatted for textbooks.


    Any additional comments?

    This textbook is out of date. That's all there is to it.

    "obsolete = XP is current O/S discussed."
    What disappointed you about Mastering the CompTIA A+?

    obsolete reference. XP was current o/s discussed... Vista was a one sentence mention and they knew nothing about Windows 7. Network stuff was ok, but not really much about wi-fi; Printer section was informative but does refer to a great many obsolete technologies.


    Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

    Fast spoken, but understandable and able to follow along.


    What does Todd Schick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The flow of the material... I always get way too bogged down on the details and he just goes on. He does present info that is on the test or likely to be tested in a clear and forthright manner.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mastering the CompTIA A+?

    the old technologies... unless they happen to be on the A+ test(s).


    Any additional comments?

    Need the audible versions to get updated as fast as the technology and tests move.

    "Great Book!"

    This is a good book for anyone looking to prep for the A+ Exam. I am a student studying computer science and this is a good overview of computers and how they work.

    "Getting the Grade"

    Easy to listen too & navigate. No matter which A+ exam is current, I feel this is still relevant. As you know, as of 2011, the A+ has to be repeated every 3yrs. or use the CE. I am using this as a reference to stay focused while waiting for my current study material to come in.

    "Great review of connections and terminology"

    At the end of this review, you will be able to set up a computer from the motherboard! I'm not suggesting that this could be a stand-alone product for studying for the test, but this is the best review I've heard yet where the actual set-up of a computer system is concerned. You will learn a lot about connections, cables, and terminology.

    I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to review for the test, but it would also be a good introduction to computers for someone who just wants general help with that topic.

    The narration was very good for a technical guide, and the brevity of these types of reviews makes them great for reviewing the material over and over.

    "a very good read"

    I listened to this book while driving my van at work and thoroughly enjoyed it, it is full of good facts but you do need to remember that it is about the old course and not the current one,

    "its the old Comptia A+"

    its not the current comptia 701-702. its the old 601-602
    Also, the reader is very rushed. Its better than nothing though so can't moan too much.
    Will it help me pass my comptia test? I think it'll help for sure but you have to use it in confunction with other learning materials.
    If i pass my test, then I'll up the score a little :o)

    "Fantastic!"

    I am now a fully certified A+ technician! I used this audio book to everview what I have previously studied, the narration was charismatic and the content was well structured and put together to make for a fantastic purchase. I only wish they did one for either the N+ or S+ certifications so I could see which would be more suited for me. Thank you Awdeeo!
