Audible needs a new CompTia A+ book

What was most disappointing about Christopher Parker’s story?

It is old and out of date.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. The A+ certification is huge, and to only have one lame and out of date option in all of Audible is, again, a disappointment.

Any additional comments?

Find better Comptia books and get them into the Audible library!

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.

Badly outdated

Not bad overall, but this version is very out of date. The newest CompTia test is the 901 and 902 covering much more information than this book does.

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.

Supplemental at best

The narrator is very upbeat. Not thorough enough for the exam though. Get an actual book and study hard.

content out of date and should be retired.

the content of this book is out of date and the book should be retired from the audible store, the most relevant thing in it was vista.

Terribly outdated

This appears to be the 2008 version. Nearly useless for the current test. Not sure why it's still on audible.

Ancient And Out-Of-Date

While still correct, this material predates 2010. It doesn't cover a lot of material on current exams in 2018. I want a refund!

old but can be useful.

this book is about 10 Years old and some of the content is out of date but the approach is sound and can be useful as a revision training aid... but not much else.

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!
