If you really want to master PC repair and upgrades, there's often no substitute for seeing it done. That's what makes Mark Minasi's The Complete Pc Upgrade & Maintenance Seminar In A Box so nifty.
Sure, you get Minasi's 1600-page, best-selling The Complete Pc Upgrade & Maintenance Guide—but you also get four hours of personal video instruction drawn from Minasi's world-renowned seminars. You watch Minasi tear down a PC from start to finish, then install just about every component you're likely to encounter, including CPUs, DIMMs, hard drives, floppies, CD-ROMs, DVDs, SCSI adapters, and modems. Minasi walks you through BIOS configuration and drive partitioning, too. The videos come on 2 VHS tapes—and on 3 CD-ROMs, in Quicktime format, so you can watch them right at your workstation.
You also get a workbook with 41 hands-on labs covering everything from dual booting to handling I/O conflicts and IRQ problems, recovering lost files to upgrading notebook PCs. And if you're prepping for the CompTIA A+ exam, there's a bonus CD-ROM with more than 350 practice questions. Whether you're a technician or a weekend putterer, by the time you're done, you'll be perfectly comfy messing around inside any PC.
