Most Helpful Customer Reviews
There are 2 DVDs, one focusing on each of the 2 exams needed to get A+ certified. In short, the first DVD deals with hardware and the second one with software.
The presentation is a series of PowerPoint-like slides with narration. There are images or pictures in some slides, but I would prefer more - and better - images.
A book like A+ Guide To Hardware: 6th Edition (Jean Andrews) would prepare you better for the hardware exam, but the hardware DVD is good for review or as an introduction. Plus, two books (one for hardware, one for software) would cost much more than this 2-DVD set, and with the books you would have to actually read (I prefer sitting on a couch and watching/listening to TV).
I have noticed a couple minor errors (?) in terminology so far (such as his calling AC either alternative current or alternate current, I cannot remember which), but nothing major.
For the price I paid (about 50 US), I am satisfied with the product.
