My main study guide was Mike Myers ver4 though there is a new up to date ver5 I think , went through the book 2or 3 times also read just about every post on this forum & followed the experts on going advice, also used every free exam simulator that was going , my advice woulD be to take the exams a few weeks apart & study mostly on the up coming one . All the best will let you know my OS when I do it in 2 weeks time .

thanks IANUK,
thanks for ur advice. im strudying thru' mike meyers ver5. i have almost finished studying but the fear is still there . no confidence because here in india the exam fee is pretty costly and if god forbid something goes wrong u loose all the money. any ways i ll keep my fingers crossed and spirits high. u even suggested some exam simulators . are they available on the net for free because its next to impossible to get these things in my country and if u ask some one to get it for u from abroad they charge double the amount.do let me know if there are any free sites for exam simulators.
any ways sorry for taking much of ur time. im sure u will clear with flying colors. all the best once again and good luck
:)

Congrats on IANUK's success in the test. That's a fabulous accomplishment! And to gotodreams: The tests in the U.S. are not what you'd call cheap, either. Good idea, though, to take them separately and focus singly on one subject first, then the other. See my post in another thread about practice-question opportunities online. They're all over the place.

The Mike Meyers 5th edition dumped the chapter on DOS altogether and contains updated material on XP. I'd also recommend the ExamCram2 book by James Jones, Craig Landis/2nd Edition/Que Publishing, 2004)... it's more succinct that Meyers' rambling tome and focuses tightly on facts and the exam approach. Also contains a CD of sample tests. My God, the book and CD was only $30 USD!! And it is up-to-date. Well worth it. :cool:

Another great little discovery--as it applies to reference materials on the workings of computer hardware--is the Hardware Bible by Winn L. Rosch. Someone gave me an older 5th Edition recently and I fell in love. I found the 6th edition (2003) online for a mere $12 (retails for $40) and fell in love all over again. (over 1,100 pages) Both editions together provide EXTENSIVE insight into PC hardware, technology and peripherals, to say the least... especially for this novice. I would highly recommend this text. :cool:
