This book is a great place to start your studies


I found this book to be very well laid out for beginners and advanced techs alike. It was easy to read and understand and did a great job of keeping the information in your head (the chapter quizes and study CD were a great tool). I am now A+ Certified and scored a 95 on the Core and an 89 on the DOS/Windows on the first try and I would not have done it without this book! The book led me from knowing nothing but the basics to a solid fundamental knowledge of all exam objectives. The Core Part covers virtually everything the exam can test you on and the DOS/Windows part does a good job of prepping you for the basics but on the exam you had better know Dos,Win3.x and Windows 95 via experience or you may have a hard time with the test. I highly recommend this as your first study platform then using A+ Exam Cram to polish your knowledge before taking the tests! Good Luck! If I can do it so can you!!

Title: CCNA 1 and 2 Companion Guide, Revised (Cisco Networking Academy Program) (3rd Edition) (Cisco Networking Academy Program)

An Excellent Companion


Cisco seems to have made a transition from being a high performance workstation and server supplier to being a supplier of high end networking equipment. It seems like you cannot go into an Internet Service Provider without seeing at least some Cisco equipment. As such, being an authority on Cisco equipment and even more important understanding the Cisco approach to networking is a good start on employment. And the crowning achievement is the Cisco Certified Network Associate certificate.

This book is a companion to the on line course. It was written by the people who wrote the exam so it covers what you need to know to pass it.

Title: Programming Interviews Exposed: Secrets to Landing Your Next Job

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
helpful for experienced programmer long out of school


This book was helpful in preparation for programming interview for professional whose school days are far behind. Recent graduates could probably do well without it. But if it had been quite a few years since you were in a class the book serves as a good practical reminder of generic programming exercises that are rarely encountered in everyday work. One problem from the book was actually presented at the interview. Good investment if you want to refresh your skills and look for new opportunity.
