is a good book you can look into.
Also check around for a local Technical College that might offer a class. I didn't buy a book, but i took a 2 part software/hardware class at my local Technical School and that prepped me just fine. Turned out they were also a testing site too boot!http://search.barnesandnoble.com/CompTIA-A-Exam-Cram/David-L-Prowse/e/9780789742421/?itm=9&USRI=a%2b
is one that has really good customer reviews. The reviews are always helpful.
Here is a free study guide you can start with if you want.http://www.proprofs.com/certification/comptia/a-plus/study-guide/index.shtml
Just click the links on the right that take you to different sections to explore. Free is generally not as good as a book, but it can help you see how much you already know.
