Start by marking A+ Core Module Study Guide as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. David Groth, an A+ instructor at Corporate Technologies in Fargo, North Dakota, reveals the information necessary to pass the Core module for A+ certification. The A+ certification is the industry-leading hardware and software support qualification and is fast becoming a prerequisite for employment in the computer industry.

Component and CD-ROM details aside, though, A+: Core Module Study Guide provides a solid introduction to the general operation and key subsystems of IBM- compatible personal computers. Readers get the goods on electronic theory, volatile and nonvolatile memory, processors, peripheral buses, printers, and networks. David Groth, the author writes about how the two books contain all the information you need to know to pass these exams. While on the surface this may be true, the way his books are put together leaves a lot to be desired. I passed the first part of the A+ test, largely due to the fact of my own personal experience in the field.

This study guide provides full, in-depth coverage of both the Core and the DOS/Windows modules. Clearly focused and organized, the material covers all the official CompTIA exam objectives

I bought David's two books, read two books, studied two books, and passed two test with scores on the upper en. Although I obtained my MCSE before embarking on the A+ certification I have found this book to be an excellent resource.

I bought David's two books, read two books, studied two books, and passed two test with scores on the upper end. I train computer students and am not a repair junky. I have had years of experience as a computer technician before advancing to sys admin and finally NT systems design work, but I found this book increased my knowledge in areas that I had been lacking.

David Groth, the author writes about how the two books contain all the information you need to know to pass these exams. While on the surface this may be true, the way his books are put together leaves a lot to be desired. I passed the first part of the A+ test, largely due to the fact of my own personal experience in the field. The fact that I am even giving the book any stars is due to the fact that in areas that I was a little weak in the book did have some information that was of some use to me. One HUGE word of caution to anyone who is using this book as a study guide, the book contains a CD ROM with a mock test on it, which is really a review of all the questions from all the chapters. I read each chapter and answered all the questions and used the CD ROM test three times. My final score from the third testing over three weeks was 192 correct answers out of 198. When I took the actual test at the center I scored a 77. A friend of mine, who may be writing here as well was scoring into the 90th percentile, he didn't pass the exam. DO NOT use the questions as a be all and end all for this exam, you will be disappointed. I have to study for the new WIN95 part of this exam. I hope there is little reference to the old DOS/WIN test, because all I have to use to study at this point is the other book to this set and I believe I'll be disappointed with the results from it as well.
I found this book to be helpful to my taking the A+ exam. I passed on 7/7/98 with only missing two questions between both parts of the exam. The lady at the test center asked me "Are you sure you completed BOTH parts??", probably because I told her I was done in less than 45 minutes. This book had a lot of great info on printer repair, which was where I was lacking. Anyone who reads this as their only test prep should beware, though.. I had A LOT of experience hacking win 9x and DOS before I took the test. You should try to get some other books to cover all your bases. Back when I took the test, more than 75% of the questions covered printer issues, maybe that has changed.....
If you can't run a computer without a GUI, this certification won't help you much anyways......
I'm preparing for the A+ test as are many others. I've just completed the Core Module and I've started the Win/Dos book. In the troubleshooting section of the Core book Groth details the software release process...alpha testing, beta testing, and finally a public release. The only complaint I have is that this book should have been beta tested more. There are quite a few simple mistakes. Most are obvious, but can be confusing. That is my only complaint. After this book I plan to review with the Certification Insider "A+ Exam Prep". Hopefully, that will do it. If you're listening Dave, give me a free book and I'll beta test it for you. :)
David's book has filled a void that has been out there for some time.... this is the first - IN DEPTH - book that I've found that covered everything that you could encounter with the core exam. This book is easy to understand and very well written. You can use the sample test questions in each chapter to gauge your knowledge of the topics presented. I would recommend this book to anyone going after A+, I passed on the 1st try and although I attained my MCSE before doing A+, I found David's book a great source to fill in gaps that I had developed in PC knowledge through the years. Give this book a try, you won't be dissapointed.
This book is full of errors that go beyond mere sloppiness and involve fundamental ignorance of the subject matter. For just one example, consider this howler taken from the book at page 114: "Most error checking done today uses checksumming, unless only a basic communication check is required. For example, parity is used in the case of modem communications, because these transfers are relatively slow to begin with. If modems used checksumming instead of parity, modem communications would be too slow to be a viable means of telecommunications." A reader who had knowledge of PCs and modems would recognize the quoted passage as nonsense. But a beginner, far from learning anything about modem communications, would significantly increase his ignorance. What a shame that a well respected publisher like Sybex would allow its name to be associated with a book of this quality. If you want to learn reliable information about PCs, get some other book -- any other book. You can hardly do worse than this one.
I have recently been certified as an A+ technician. However I had to retake the Core test because the A+ Core Module study guide did not sufficiently cover many areas on the test. I would strongly advise anyone wanting to become A+ certified to look for a better alternative to the Sybex Core study guide. It will save you more than twice what the book cost in retesting fees.
The information in this book could be useful if the author had some sort of coherent flow of information. He jumps from one subject to the next, explains simple concepts with complex terminology. And I don't think I've ever seen an A+ text that spends almost 100 pages talking about networking when only 5% of the exam deals with the subject. He spends too much time, in my opinion, explain ancient history when it comes to computers. A technician does not really need to know how an 8088 processor handles its information. And the troubleshooting section deals with DOS! I think he should have saved that for the second book in his 2 part text. If you are thinking about buying this book along with the dos/windows book, please save your money and look elsewhere.
I was dissappointed after reading this book. Although I did learn some things, I realized after reading other books that there are quite a few inaccuracies in its content and also the book is also riddled with editorial errors, as if it was rushed to the Press. I think the author should apologise to consumers and rewrite this book.
