Excellent terminology review

This is a great review for terminology associated with the A+ exam. This would also be a good resource for anyone who just wants to know more about computers. Some of it will be too technical for the second group, but it contains a lot of useful information about troubleshooting.

The only caveat is that the last version of Windows that had been released when this review was published was Vista, so if you're looking for a lot of in-depth information on Windows, you might want a more current resource. I didn't downgrade it for that because it's still a wonderful review of the basics of computers, how they work, how to set them up, and how to troubleshoot.

As I say in all of my reviews of CompTia review audiobooks, keep in mind that this is a review and not a course. The brevity of the book makes it easy to listen to again and again to become comfortable with key concepts and terminology, but it could not be used alone.

The narration was excellent for a technical guide. I listened to it at 2x, but it could be enjoyed at almost any speed.

This, plus my Kindle book was all I needed to pass

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it was great quick refresher to listen to at night and right before the exam. It covers the bare bones you need to pass the test.

What other book might you compare CompTIA A+ Essentials (220-701) Lecture Series to and why?

CompTIA A+ Certification For Complete Newbies

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

LOL. It's a lecture on A+ certification, there is no real "emotion" in it, it's just the basic info you need to pass the test.

Any additional comments?

This lecture plus CompTIA A+ Certification For Complete Newbies was what I primarily used to prepare for the exam. Between these two source and my basic knowledge of being a nerdy computer guy (having built many computers on my own before) was all I needed to pass the 701 A+ test with a nearly perfect score (missed 4 questions out of 100).

Better than nothing

The information in this audiobook is good, unfortunately the book is just too short to be very useful. This audiobook should only be a supplement to your preparation for the Comptia A+ exam, don't use this as your sole study method. This is really the only Comptia A+ audiobook option, if you want something better I'd recommend getting a physical book, like Mike Meyers all in one exam guide, take notes from it, then use your microphone to make your own audiobook. The audio and presentation likely wouldn't be as good, but you'd have better material and learn a lot in the process.

Great information! Very well narrated.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was very much. Very helpful. And, god knows- it saves your eyes from very tough technical reading.

Would you be willing to try another book from PrepLogic? Why or why not?

Yes. Very much. Made classes I take easier. Well worth the money.

Did the narrator do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. Very precise. Well spoken and very clear to understand.

Could you see CompTIA A+ Essentials (220-701) Lecture Series being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

A movie or a T.V. series?? Who would be the viewers- prisoners whom refuse to talk.I said it made my Computer Tech. class easier, but it is still the most difficult reading of my life. Here's an idea: make it mandatory for the prisoners to read my test book, in order to be released. They"ll crack in 30 minutes.

Any additional comments?

How much to star in the movie?

Very Poor.

Bought this to listen too during the daily commute to work. Its poor, lacks detail and Informs listener to refer to figure 'x' for more information, doh...its an audiobook. Don't waste your time. Get a decent book (CompTIa A+ by Mike Meyers), and make your own audiobook.

Complete waste of money.
