" . . . speaking of the A+ cert text: I actually purchased it for my own use as I was cramming for the A+ cert myself and I only have one thing to say: wow! Any prospective A+ student should certainly have a solid foundation in the various hardware/software principles in addition to this text, but for the brute memorization and getting acclimated to the testing atmosphere, this is THE text—I just finished passing both halves of the certification and this text was a large part of it."
—Lynne Y. Williams, University of New Mexico at Los Alamos

Your Problem
In your PC Repair Course, you may not have time to prepare your students for the A+ exam.

Your Students' Problem
Students frequently will know computer support material, but are not used to taking certification-type questions.

Schmidt's Solution to Both Problems
The A+ Certification Self-Study, 2nd Edition, helps your students at their own pace, without impinging on your class time. Schmidt's book provides practice questions, correct answers, and detailed explanations. Written by a leader in the field of computer repair, Schmidt takes great pride in providing accurate information that is written for student comprehension. Schmidt has been very successful preparing students for the A+ exam in her own program (a 100% first time pass rate after three years). Now she's putting what has worked for onto paper, so it can work for you and your students.

You may have discovered that other A+ study guides are inaccurate and/or incomplete. If you have taught out of Schmidt's The Complete Computer Repair Textbook, you know that she IS accurate and IS complete. The A+ Certification Self-Study, 2nd Edition is the perfect compliment to any computer repair class or program.
