Authors Mark Edward Soper, David L. Prowse and Scott Mueller, have done an outstanding job of writing a 3rd edition of a book that will help you pass the 2012 version of the CompTIA A+ Certification exams 220-801 and 220-802....this great book uses a subsystem approach: each chapter is devoted to a particular part of the computer, so that you understand how the components of each part work together and how each part of the computer works with other parts. With over 900 pages, this is the most comprehensive and complete guide for the Comptia A+ exam, and for a PC Technician in general. It has very good up-to-date material on Virtualization and Tablet devices. The networking section is also very well done.- from a five-star review at Amazon.com
