Our Recommended Resources for the CompTIA A+

These are the resources we recommend to prepare for and pass the CompTIA A+ certification.

Be sure to also work through a sufficient number of practice exam questions and build plenty of hands-on experience when preparing for the A+ exam.

Recommended Resource #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.  This A+ book from him is comprehensive, and therefore a good resource to get the material that you’ll need for the exam. You can get this book from Amazon here. (By using this affiliate link, I may earn a small commission).


Recommended Resource #2: 

CompTIA A+ Complete Practice Tests

Authors Parker and Doctor are no strangers to writing CompTIA textbooks, and this book of practice exams will help you prepare for the A+ exam, which is why I like it. You can get this book from Amazon here. (By using this affiliate link, I may earn a small commission).


Recommended Resource #3:

CompTIA A+ Core 1 (220-1001) and Core 2 (220-1002) Exam Cram

I usually don’t recommend three different books, but for the two exams of the A+, more is better. This exam cram book cuts out all of the BS, and gets right down to what you need to know. You can get this book from Amazon here. (By using this affiliate link, I may earn a small commission).
