Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, it was great quick refresher to listen to at night and right before the exam. It covers the bare bones you need to pass the test.
What other book might you compare CompTIA A+ Essentials (220-701) Lecture Series to and why?
CompTIA A+ Certification For Complete Newbies
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
LOL. It's a lecture on A+ certification, there is no real "emotion" in it, it's just the basic info you need to pass the test.
Any additional comments?
This lecture plus CompTIA A+ Certification For Complete Newbies was what I primarily used to prepare for the exam. Between these two source and my basic knowledge of being a nerdy computer guy (having built many computers on my own before) was all I needed to pass the 701 A+ test with a nearly perfect score (missed 4 questions out of 100).

This is a great review for terminology associated with the A+ exam. This would also be a good resource for anyone who just wants to know more about computers. Some of it will be too technical for the second group, but it contains a lot of useful information about troubleshooting.
The only caveat is that the last version of Windows that had been released when this review was published was Vista, so if you're looking for a lot of in-depth information on Windows, you might want a more current resource. I didn't downgrade it for that because it's still a wonderful review of the basics of computers, how they work, how to set them up, and how to troubleshoot.
As I say in all of my reviews of CompTia review audiobooks, keep in mind that this is a review and not a course. The brevity of the book makes it easy to listen to again and again to become comfortable with key concepts and terminology, but it could not be used alone.
The narration was excellent for a technical guide. I listened to it at 2x, but it could be enjoyed at almost any speed.

Bought this to listen too during the daily commute to work. Its poor, lacks detail and Informs listener to refer to figure 'x' for more information, doh...its an audiobook. Don't waste your time. Get a decent book (CompTIa A+ by Mike Meyers), and make your own audiobook.
Complete waste of money.
