Overview

Catch the PC Technician career express. McGraw-Hill, the experts in

lucrative--professional credentials in the industry; A+ certification.
Written by Michael Meyers, a leading PC and network repair authority
and teacher, the A+ Certification Exam Guide delivers the clearest and
most comprehensive exam preparation available...at much less than

easy comprehension and retention, this 2-in-1 book--at once an in-depth

you've passed the exam--delivers the essentials you need to
confidently: pass the new, updated 1998 version of CompTIA's A+
certification exam with flying colors; master the fundamentals of PC
hardware and DOS/Windows system software; set up and complete a
systematic, customized study program for the exam; find answers to
questions and understand why they are correct; handle real-world PC
hardware and software problems on the job. Plus, to ensure your
performance on the exam, this book comes with a CD-ROM that includes:
100 practice questions that cover both the Core and DOS/Windows exams.
The practice exams can be taken in either practice or test mode. The
CD-ROM even provides book study references to help you "bone up" on
questions that you incorrectly answer on the tests; access to upgrade
and receive an additional 500 practice questions; dozens of powerful
freeware, shareware, and demonstration utilities that PC tech really
need!

    The Best A+ Study Guide

    Michael Meyers wrote a very informative book that won't put you to sleep. His diagrams are very easy to understand and extremely helpful. The CD-Rom that comes with the book is also a wonderful study tool. I strongly suggest purchasing the additional tests offered through the CD. This book was the best resource I came across while attaining my A+ Certification.

    apalling

    As a teacher of technical English for non native speakers I had the task of trying to help students with the low level informal 'slang'which was as bad as trying to pick out the relevant information to answer the so called exam practice tests on the CD. The practice tests bear no relation to what is stated in the exam section of the book nor is there any guidance on the actual the exam. All important information for a reference book which is geared towards an exam. Even here in Sweden we are aware that American authors are paid by the word and as my students have commented 'was this just another money making exercise!'
