I'm planning on taking the CompTIA A+ Certification test before my birthday Oct. 09. How long would I need to study and also if you have any tips on how you studied and practiced for the exam I would really appreciate it. Websites that offer free study guides are needed as I am a student on a budget.

How long you need to study depends on what you already know and how quickly you pick up new information.  This will vary by individual.  I probably spent about a month on studying for my A+, but at the time had been working in IT for five years.  Even with working in IT for five years there were things I still needed to learn, mainly laser printing, something I hadn't had much experience with up until I started studying.

 

I used the Exam Cram books to study for my exams.  They do not walk you through every little thing.  They give you the information you need to know to pass the exam.  These books are not for people with little or no knowledge on the subject.

I have a copy of the Exam Cram text that Kilroy mentioned for use with the A+ exams 220-801 and 220-802. An OEM we work with requires techs to earn our A+ before we can earn our specialization certification through them, to complete self-service warranty repairs, so I'm finalizing my studying for the exams as I type. The Exam Cram text was a nice supplement for material I don't work with regularly, but if you're an auditory learner you may find the Professor Messer A+ training videos to be more your style.
