Is there a real good A+ book that I can buy to prepare me for the test?
And where would I buy it.
I am presently taking a correspon. Course in computer repair and diagnostic, but I realize that the books I am reading are some what out dated. They only speaks about windows ME, 98 and 95. I understand that most things remain basic.

Welcome Aboard!

There are loads of them out there - but you do need to check that they cover the new XP syllabus.
The ExamCram books are good for revising, and Upgrading and Repairing PCs by Scott Mueller is an excellent choice.
I'm not sure if the 'for dummies' books are upgrading for XP, but these can be worthwile as well - their information is fairly well presented.

I would recomend the "A+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide" by Mike Myers. It's especially good if your a beginer like i was and goes into a fair ammount of detail. It's also easy to read as it's not dry as and boring as most technical books are.

Here (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0072229918/qid=1069245277/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/002-9731805-2340033?v=glance&n=507846) is a link for the lazy

You've come to a great place. I got loads of info from here for my A+, as have many others. Never be afraid to ask - there are no patronising geeks here, just geeks who really know their stuff and are happy to pass it on.
