Default A+ Certification

I know some of you are A+ certified and I was wondering what books you would recommend to help me get an A+ certification. I've heard good things about the Mike Myers books but was wondering if there's anything else out there or if you have any tips for studying/preparing.

Thanks

From what I've heard the test is pretty easy. Just gotta know your hardware.

I heard Mike Meyers is pretty good, but I got the "CompTIA A+ Complete" by Docter, Dulaney, and Skandler. That's what I used to get my certification.

Where do you take the test at and how much does it cost?

You take the test at either a Prometrics or a Pearson Vue testing center. A+ requires the passing of two exams, last I checked, were $169 USD apiece.
