After buying the book as my sole study aide for the A+ test, I then came to this site and read the reviews. I started to panic and rightly so. The core portion of the book is nicely written and easy to understand. If you actually read the words that make the sentences that make the paragraphs, you'll have a good grasp of not only the answers but the concepts as well. Those that take only the study tests at the end of chapters, memorize the "Instant Answers" and use the bold face method of studying run the risk of flunking the Core test. No matter what web site you go to, those attempting to cram for the test and simply regurgitate the "knowledge" at test time are those that fail the test and wonder why.That said, the Dos/Win portion of this book is insufficient enough for the publisher to simply pull the book from the shelves. You WILL NOT pass the Win/Dos portion if this is your only aide, unless you retain ample personal experience. I don't know how this book was even published with so little information on a 65 question test.The test will delve deeply into troubleshooting Dos and Win 95, and this book only gives you 37 pages and mostly on boot sequences. Only by luck did I pass the Dos/Win with a score of 69% A score to be embarrased of on the one hand, while bordering on embarrased of being certified by a company that hasn't udated it's test in so many years that it's painfully outdated. The Dos/Win is more of a history test than a technolgy test as (regardless of what people will say) Dos will finally meet it's end with the release of Win ME. Most computers in the workplace are either 98 or NT, neither of which are mentioned and won't be until the end of the year when CompTia will revamp the test and remove the Dos, Win 3.
