A+ Video Trainng,any good?

  iqs 18:03 30 Jul 2008


Yet another question regarding training for the A+ Essentials Exam.

I have seen advertised on Amazon and Ebay,video training for the A+ Exams.

Has anyone used this type of media?,does it help?.

Currently I'm reading the CompTIA A+ Certification for Dummies 9 books in 1,then the Absolute Beginners Guide to the A+ Certification by Mark Edward Soper.

Both books are very knowledgeable and easy to understand.But with combined pages of over 2200 it will take some time,phew..

But like I asked,how good is video training?.

Many thanks

Monkey see, Monkey do comes to mind

often no matter how hard you read there is no substitute for being shown what to do.

Seth Haniel,many thanks for the reply.

'often no matter how hard you read there is no substitute for being shown what to do'

I agree,It is always easier to learn new skills if shown,then reading from books.

But since I have started to read the Dummies Book,I have learnt so much,I know know about SCSI,IRQ's,I/O Addresses,and more.But my poor eyes and wrist from making notes :-(

Hello Pamy ,thanks again for your comments.

I bought the book you recommended from Amazon.I have only read a few pages,but instantly I can tell it is aimed at the novice/beginner,lovely.

I will start the book once the Dummies book is finished.Only another 400+ pages to go...

I have e-mailed the college asking if the lecturer wouldn't mind me contacting him regarding the course syllabus.No reply as yet.

If I don't receive any recommendations from this thread regarding informative training packages,I will wait until September and seek the advice of the college.

Once again many thanks for your help Seth Haniel & Pamy.Regards, IQS
