Accelerate Your IT Career
IT professionals who are preparing for the new CompTIA 2006
certification in A+ or the current Network+ and Security+ certifications will
find the latest In a Nutshell certification exam reference invaluable. A+,
Network+, Security+ Exams in a Nutshell by Pawan K. Bhardwaj provides all the
information needed to get ready for these exams, including the four new A+
exams-the required Essentials exam and three elective exams that pertain to
particular areas of specialization.
As with other O’Reilly Nutshell books for certification exams, A+, Network+,
Security + in a Nutshell follows a proven style and approach. It reviews all of
the topics needed to master each exam in a remarkably concise format, with
required knowledge boiled down to the core. Instead of plowing through 500 to
700 pages to prepare for each exam, this book covers each one in approximately
150 pages. And because the objectives for the three elective A+ exams are
redundant, the book covers them in one section.
The exams covered include:
A+ Essentials: Required for A+ 2006 certification
EXAM 220-602: For the A+ IT Technician specialization
EXAM 220-603: For the A+ Remote Support Technician specialization
EXAM 220-604: For the A+ IT Depot specialization
EXAM N10-003: For Network+ Certification
EXAM SYO-101: For Security+ Certification
Each exam is covered in three parts: Exam Overview, Study Guide, and Prep and
Practice. Plenty of detailed tables and screen shots are included, along with
study notes and practice questions. The book also doubles as a handy reference
for those who’ve already passed the exams or simply want a single resource for
the subject matter.
