This study guide for PC technicians covers the A+ Essentials exam (220-601) and the three optional advanced exams for certification as depot technician (220-604), remote support technician (220-603) and general IT technician (220-602). Unlike many study guides, this volume includes not just outlines but also more detailed topic review in complete text. Topics covered in the 25 chapters supplemented by b&w illustrations include: basic PC terms and concepts, microprocessors, RAM, ports and peripherals, basic troubleshooting and preventative maintenance, maintenance and repair of portable computers, Windows operating systems, operation of system utilities, printer and scanner servicing, basic networking concepts, installation of LANs, wide area networking, security, safety and environmental issues, and professionalism and communication. A practice test concludes every chapter, and software for additional study is provided on the accompanying CDROM.
