31 Days Before Your CompTIA A+ Exams (2nd Edition)

OK, I realize that the name on the cover says "Ben Conry" and he wrote the original content that was submitted to the publisher, but for unknown reasons he abruptly dropped out of the project. Meanwhile, the technical and production editors had marked up his content with a ton of questions and proposed changes and somebody had to deal with them.

Enter "me".

If you go to page "v" in the frontmatter, you'll see "About the Author" which tells you about Ben and then you'll see "About the Contributing Author" which is my bio. I don't get "cover credit" because the primary content isn't mind and I was brought into the book late in the game, on the other hand (sorry, Ben), I had to "fix" a lot of the content so it would make sense in relation to the current A+ exam domains. Hopefully, this will make the book more successful on the market, but you, the reader, will have to judge that for yourself.

If you're studying for the A+ exams and you want to give yourself an intense 31-day review prior to exam day, please pick up a copy of 31 Days Before Your CompTIA A+ Exams (2nd Edition), published by Cisco Press.

Please keep in mind that you must do your primary studying from some tome like Mike Meyers's CompTIA A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, Seventh Edition or the McGraw Hill book CompTIA A+ Certification Study Guide, Seventh Edition (I wrote the companion to the McGraw Hill publication: CompTIA A+ Certification Practice Exams).

After studying with one (or more) of these "big books" and then using the "31 days" book, take the exam, then let me know how you did by commenting on this blog. I also encourage you to post a review on Amazon (be nice) to let others know how well the book helped you out.

Good luck to all A+ test takers. Cheers.
