Disappointing, just disappointing
According to the publishers of this book, they had hoped to publish a cheaper, more efficient guide to the A+ exams, but I think that they cut out too much, and slapped too many things together haphazardly.
Each section contains at best a couple REALLY brief pages about a certain topic (say EIDE for example), and then suddenly throw some questions at you that are often unclear, and have an odd structure to them (not to mention typos and errors that other reviewers have pointed out). I definitely doubt that the real questions on the A+ exam are this tough or have this sort of format because people would surely revolt.
The worst gripe of all was the supposed "free test exam software" that you can download from their website. Its very difficult to find, and not that helpful since its always the same few questions.
I did have to give this book 3 stars because it did accomplish its aim of being a "cram for the test" style book. If you need to just read the differences between different Pentium processors, for example, then this book will still help you. However, don't rely too much on the questions, they are just not worth it.
If you have time to thoroughly study for the A+ exam, consider looking for another book, but if you need a quick review, then go ahead and pick up this book, but look elsewhere for self-testing resources.

This book was okay - the format of the questions is a bit different from other books, and consequently, the exam. There were many mistakes and discrepancies, and the publisher isn't even recognizing them. (Bad for them.) Questions are rather difficult, but be on your toes for inaccurate information.
