Are you ready to start on your path toward earning your CompTIA A+?  We’ve reviewed a lot of study guides, videos, books and other resources, and these are the resources we’ve found to be the most helpful when it comes to preparing for and passing CompTIA’s A+ certification.

These are the Top Video Courses Available for the A+

These are the best CompTIA A+ video courses that we’ve found after reviewing lots of options.  Consider focusing your study efforts on these resources as they are solid learning tools for your A+ study.

Recommended Video Course #1:  Mike Meyers A+ Certification Courses.  Mike Meyers’ video course on the A+ is quite good (as are his other video courses) and he ties to the exam objectives pretty well.  This video series can be purchased directly from his Total Seminars website, but you can get full access to this video course for much less at Udemy.

These are the Top Books Available for the A+

In addition to watching a video series above, you should also read the content that is covered on the exam.  These are the best printed resources available that we’ve found for the CompTIA A+. Many people with find study guides such as these pretty dry and difficult to get through, but they are a necessity if you want to be fully prepared for the exam.

Recommended Book # 1: Mike Meyers’ CompTIA A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide.  I like most of Mike Meyers’ books as they are well written, informative, and align well to their respective exams.  His A+ book is comprehensive, and therefore a good resource to get the material that you’ll need for the exam. You can pick Mike’s book up on Amazon here. (By using this affiliate link, I may earn a small commission.)

Recommended Book #2:  CompTIA A+ Complete Practice Tests.  Authors Parker and Doctor are no strangers to writing CompTIA textbooks, and this book of practice exams is a great resource for anyone getting ready to sit for the CompTIA A+ certification exams.  You can get this book on Amazon here.  (By using this affiliate link, I may earn a small commission.)
