This includes basic knowledge of desktop and portable systems, basic networking concepts, and printers.

Topics covered in these books will match the following A+ certification topics: installation, configuration, and upgrading, diagnosing and troubleshooting, safety and preventive maintenance, motherboard/processors/memory, printers, portable Systems, basic networking, customer satisfaction.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Authorized companion guides to the Cisco Networking Academy Program, an online "university" that prepares students for certification exams and IT careers, these up-to-date and comprehensive books feature clear chapter summaries and objectives, as well as review questions and quizzes to reinforce the self-study aspect. The CD-ROMs include hands-on exercises, hundreds of practice exam questions (which can be taken in "study mode" and worked through with assistance and performance tracking), high-resolution zoomable photos, maps for the exam objectives, and instructional videos. Essentials I contains a useful appendix on careers in information technology and various certifications. While both books reference additional "lab companion" titles, they are quite usable without. For large libraries and university libraries serving computer science programs; smaller libraries should invest in less thorough titles (see Computer Media, LJ 11/1/02).
