first off here is my reason for wanting an A+ cert, so you understand ~ im looking to move up in my current position. i basically need something quick and easy to pad my resume. i dont want to start a career in the tech sector, this job is something im doing to make decent money while i go to school. the job would involve the same thing i do now on a daily basis, just with more pay in a new dept. now i picked up a book on A+ certification ("faster, smarter A+ certification") and quite frankly this shit is like a foreign language. a lot of the stuff is basic but some stuff just seems mindbogglingly arbitrary. the OS part is just ive seen some braindumps and the questions are truly all over the place. how could i get an A+ cert quickly and easily. im willing to pay for a class. quite frankly the amount of money i would be getting as a raise makes it worth it - about 300 more bux a week. but classes are hard to find even in the North VA area, at least within the time frame im looking at. it needs to be fast. like within 2 months. is reading the book and memorizing the monotanous stuff really the best way? any advise appreciated.
