Review: CompTIA A+ Certification All-In-One Exam Guide: (Exams 220-701 & 220-702) [With CDROM]

User Review  - Oliver Blankenship - Goodreads

This book contains far more information than is necessary to pass the certification exam, but this is a great read for anyone who wants to know ALL of the basics. A lot of this information is not really useful in the modern enterprise environment, but personally the information is invaluable. Read full review
