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).

NOT a complete audible version of the book!

Choppy and incoherent. The speaker doesn’t go into detail about any topic. I had to give up and stop listening half way thru. I downloaded the book thinking that I can listen to the book during my commute, but it was a total waste & scam since it’s NOT an audible version of the book...just 4-5 minute snippets of each chapter.

BIG FAIL.

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.

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.

For the complete beginner.

If you are completely new to computers, like you don't know what CPU, RAM, or think memory is only where you store your files, this is a good book for you. Otherwise, go with something else.

In this book Blu-Ray is a new thing, the next version of the CompTIA test will come out in 2012, and Windows 7 is "coming out next year" so some of the information is quite dated. But the core of the information (what RAM is and how it works, the difference between storage and memory, and how motherboards and processors work.) is still valid.

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.
