O'Reilly Releases A+, Network+, Security+ Exams in a Nutshell: Accelerate Your IT Career

Sebastopol, CA--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 (O'Reilly, US $54.99) 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.

Pawan K. Bhardwaj is an independent technical trainer and author who holds MCSE, MCSA, Security+, Network+, I-Net+, and A+ certifications. He teaches Windows Administration and Networking classes and provides consulting to training institutions. An author and contributor to 14 books, Bhardwaj is the author of O'Reilly's MCSE Core Elective Exams in a Nutshell, and coauthor of MCSA on Windows Server 2003 Core Exams in a Nutshell.
