The only thing nice I have to say about this book is that it has good audio quality. With that out of the way I should mention that this book will not help you with the 702... not even a little. It is far too short and really lacks detail. PrepLogic should be embarrassed to have this as a product. Audible should be embarrassed to sell this book. PrepLogic's 701 audiobook was 10 times better and even it was below average. This book basically walks you through some very basic troubleshooting and doesn't go into much detail at all. Anybody who has passed the 702 and took it even the least bit seriously should be able to create a more informative audiobook than this. This book is a waste of money and a waste of a download credit. There is a definite need for a really good informative Comptia A+ audiobook in my opinion, but this book isn't it.

This is a good book for anyone who wants to:
Get a general idea about various hardware and software components.
Get a really quick review for the CompTia exam that covers very general concepts.
Improve their computer-related vocabulary.
This is NOT a good book for anyone who wants to:
Get an in-depth view of hardware and software components.
Take the CompTia exam and pass it by using nothing but this book.
The narrator reads very quickly, so you may have to use that button that slows down his voice to really grasp some of the concepts (and I generally prefer fast-talking narrators), but I gave him a five-star rating because his inflection kept me interested in the material.
It might also be worthwhile to point out that the narrator frequently refers to diagrams that you can't see that are apparently found within the printed material. I really didn't find this too obnoxious, because I already had a general idea of what he was referring to, but it might cause some frustration for other listeners.
All in all, this is a great, quick guide for learning about the various components of a computer, and I suppose it can be used as a mini-review (emphasis on mini) for the CompTia exam, just don't count on it as your only study guide.
