You will pass the A+ exam


I picked up this book, with little prior knowledge of the subjects covered by this exam, and two months later I am A+ certified. This is an excellent book, I even had the previous edition and still passed. Good luck!

Really nice book!


The content of the book is fair, however the organization is terrible. Some more complicated topics are introduced before simple concepts, or in some areas, complicated topics that were not discussed are used to explain simple ideas(it does get better after chapter 5 or so, but the first five chapters are the very basics that you should know before doing anything remotley complicated). For this reason, you should at least have your feet wet with C or C++ before reading this book.
Next, this is one of the few books I've read that has 'decent' quiz questions. But guess what ? There are no answers!
Some topics are not explained very well, again the author assumes you already know something about it.
The examples in the book are fair, but most of them are not 'real world'. In several places however, there are just fragments of code instead of a full example, which can sometimes confuse the reader.
This book should not be bought alone to learn ANSI C++ if you are just starting with the language, however it can be used in addition to another book.

Perfect book for beginners


Takes you from cero to a quite deep understanding in data communications. Gives just the right amount of technical information. If you are a data communnications professional, dont even think of it, otherwise this book is just perfect.
