Train is probably best.

Alex, have him look into hiring a private taxi, we've found it to be not that much more expensive and far less hassle than riding the train. I think we usually pay under 40 pounds from Heathrow to Surrey. Well worth it for the door-to-door service, especially for two or more people. A quick internet search shows prices for Aldershot nearer to 55 pounds.
Maybe a bit high if he's traveling alone, but it will save him a lot of brain damage if he's not familiar with navigating the train.

Thanks for the responses. It's a group of them- about 5 or 6.

I would second that on the taxi. Be careful with the luggage though. Many Americans pack big suitcases and then get into a world of trouble in Europe. A group of 5-6 with big bags might need 2 taxis.
