The Mike Meyers’ Computer Skills series offers students of varying ability and experience a practical working knowledge of baseline IT skills and technologies. This full-color text is filled with real-world case studies, step-by-step tutorials, illustrations with callouts, end-of-chapter questions, challenging lab exercises, and review questions.
With chapters covering CPUs, RAM, motherboards and BIOS, expansion buses, power supplies, removable media, hard drives, CDs, SCSI, video, input devises, sound, printers, and networks, this heavily-illustrated textbook and introductory guide describes how a personal computer's hardware works, how to use its component parts, and how to fix them when they break. Author Meyers has worked as a repair technician, a trainer, and a consultant. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
