Congrats on the A+. Look for Professor Messer either his site or on youtube for free videos that are very good. As for books, I always liked the Exam Cram series but Mike Meyers books are very good from what I understand. Good luck

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

Cisco.commas a lot of good networking information freely available at their site. Red hat also has a lot of good information also, regarding networking.

I too am a fan of the Exam Cram series.  You can pick up MCSE Networking Essentials Exam Cram Adaptive Testing Edition: Exam: 70-058 for dirt cheap because the exam no longer exists.  That doesn't mean that the information is useless.  I think that Networking Essentials is the best Microsoft Exam that I've taken.  Networking Essentials: Exam 70-058 (Accelerated Mcse Study Guides) is the book that I used to study for my Networking Essentials exam.


Unfortunately a lot of the information that you are going to learn for your Network+ exam isn't going to be used, directly any way, in the real world.  The OSI Model is the thing that comes immediately to mind.  A good technician will use the OSI model, but may not be able to tell you the seven layers in order.
