    I've been supporting PCs for a long time. I'd like the take the A+ test
    before it changes in late November. Which study guide should I buy?

    What do you mean by "anything"? That's kind of vague. The only thing I see
    on the shelf at my local bookstore from Scott Mueller is his absolutely
    excellent Upgrading and Repairing PCs, 15th ed.

    However, this highly regarded book is about 1,600 pages in length. Which
    does not make it a good recommendation for the original poster who already
    has experience, and just wants a quick refresher before the current test
    expires 30 days from today.

    Hm, after searching the web and visiting Scott's website, perhaps you mean
    his A+ book, which I had forgot about and is not often referenced in this
    newsgroup? Even if that is what you were talking about, at 656 pages, that
    would still be more pages to read than Mike's Passport which is 492.

    Interesting points. For the last year I stopped learning and fell into a
    repetitive pattern of fixing the same problems.
