There is a book by a guy called Mike (or Michael) Meyers. (Not the actor). It is really good. He seems to know this test like the back of his hand. Here's a link . You may not want this exact book, but something recent by this guy should get you a passing score. Good luck!

is the one I'm currently using. It's up-to-date and covers the new '06 test. I'm not sure if Meyers has made a new book since the new test came about. I've found it to be a great help. Hopefully, I'll be taking my test soon.

EDIT: I'm not sure why it's saying "This" twice... Oh well...

Right now I'm taking a class to get A+ certified (Work is paying for it) and we are using this book.
http://www.amazon.com/CompTIA-%2B-Co...3045043&sr=1-2

I wouldn't recommend it, the material seems out of date and the format is boring. Then again you need to take my word with a grain of salt, I haven't used any other books so I can't compare it.
