View Full Version : which book to choose

03-14-2003, 04:42 AM
here A+ or net+ certificates are not popular
and only few people know about it.
so,if i learn and get A+ , it did not change
greatly my authoryty or help me to find job.
for me practical skills are more important.
i made advertisement in local newspaper and
trying to make some practice of reparing pc-s.
that task is relatively eaze for me,because of
internet,espacially PC guide forum support.
but here i have another question.
one young man entreating me to give him the
lessons about computer bazics,Troubleshooting, Maintaining & Repairing PCs.i

decide that if i
do that job ,it would be great for me too,because
i have much stains in my knowledge.
so we arrive at a price 200$ for 30 lessons,each
2,5-3 hour.
PC guide lessons are good, but short.i find here on
market Bigellows and Mayers Repairing and Troubleshooting books.mayers book

has 1 cd.
also i find

and bigellows beta online book.
so it is hard to take shape wich direction to go.
have you any suggestions?

Those books are good reference books, but I'm not to sure you could teach from them.

How about using a book or a web site that sticks to one of the certifications. (even if the certification is not well know in your part of the world, that still would not take away from the information the books that "teach" it provide)

Hopefully, some others will join in with some better suggestions.

Check out the PCGuide archives as well, there is a wealth of information there. If you go to the PCGuide home page (link at the bottom of every page), it will give you options for accessing all sorts of info.

I recommend a book by Scott Mueller, "Upgrading and Repairing PCs". It's 1500 pages, but easy to read. I currently have the 13th Edition. The 10th edition was one of my textbooks (about 5 years ago.)

Best of luck!
