This study guide is intended for someone who has experience in computer repair. I don't have the amount of experience this book has set. However, I feel, since I have some official background in computer repair, I can make good use of the information in this book. In my opinion, the logical sequence of the subjects jumped around too much, the information you read in one chapter continues in another chapter further into the book. The only strategy I can see in this type of writing is to make me or anyone think. That's a good thing. The logical sequence of a sentence is confusing. Some sentences had to be read over and over to get the meaning and others had to be omitted because they were repeated and still others had to have the correct information placed in the correct place. Even after the book fell apart, literally (it's only a couple weeks old), and the frustration of repeating the reading before a repeat was necessary, the questions at the end of the chapters and the provided CD definately are good. I recommend the flashcard method over the others.
