Excellent Professional Reference
There are heaps of online resources for the savvy computer pro. However, I believe every serious computer tech needs a good reference tool. There are always occassions when you need to get a job done and there is no internet access. If you are the computer guru for you friends then you are going to need a book like this.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

All of these books are thorough
No this book does not show you step by step how to work on YOUR OWN COMPUTER(the title does not say work on your own computer for dummys)..this book gives you the guidelines you need to know what the heck computers are all about...if you want to know what hardware your own COMP needs that is what the motherboard, and OEM manuals are for...also a quick call to Frys or CompUsa with the type of computer you have and what your looking for and they will tell the you that are illiterate what you will then need...this book is fantastic and helped me pass my A+...not this particular edition but a previous oneWas this review helpful?

Wrong title for the book
Scott should come up with a different title for the book. All that this book covers is spec. sheets and old comp. hardware ratings. This book almost completely avoids what it title says. It does not teach you to repair your own computer. It does not tell you what kind of new video card would be good with that motherboard. It tells you what the AGP slot is. It does not tell you what RAM will give you the best performance, it tells you what CL latency is. This is a book of definitions and terms. It does not teach you how to make decisions on what you should do to upgrade you own computer. It barely even touches on how to repair a PC. The only material that is devoted to repairing a PC is on the DVD. And don't buy the book for the DVD either. But I have to admit it was funny as hell to see him standing there and being very nervous.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
