Many A+ certification guides prepare aspiring PC technicians to pass the exam, but don’t put test objectives in a “practical use” context. Other PC repair guides cover A+ exam objectives in a real-world setting, but don’t prepare students well enough to pass the test and get certified. The A+ Certification and PC Repair Handbook solves this problem by combining a complete test preparation for the new A+ examinations (220-301 and 220-302) with a hands-on guide that reflects how the A+ exam questions apply to real-world PC repair problems. The book teaches users how to install and troubleshoot hardware, and provides solutions to common operating system-related problems for machines running Microsoft Windows 9x, Me, 2000, and XP. Each chapter includes numerous diagrams and photographs, and explains PC repair techniques using easy-to-understand language and accessible terms. For each chapter explaining these PC repair tactics, another chapter is included on how to pass the corresponding portion of the A+ exam with objectives and sample exam questions based on the actual tests. Test-taking techniques are also covered, including the test’s recent return to conventional linear testing, as opposed to the adaptive format of previous years.
