The Complete Computer
Repair Textbook 2004

by Cheryl A. Schmidt

ISBN 1-57676-144-4


Praise for The Complete Computer Repair Textbook by Cheryl Schmidt!
"I like this book. Explanations are easy to understand. This is the only book my teacher assigned and I think it is very good. It's easy to understand and the lab exercises are good, too."
a student in Virginia

"In particular, I like the paper and pencil exercises which give students the opportunity to start applying theory before they work on actual equipment. I also like the hands-on exercises she presents. Furthermore, from the parts I skimmed, it looks like Schmidt is more accurate in her technical explanations than most authors. Also, her coverage of current and emerging technology in computers is great. For a first time author, Cheryl Schmidt has done an outstanding job. Congratulations to her on authoring a computer repair textbook that is better than anything else I have seen."
Joe Pease, Instructor; Moraine Park Technical College

"Other instructors teaching hands-on computer assembly and repair classes know how very difficult and time consuming it is to prepare and test lab exercises, ensuring that labs provide a positive learning experience. The chapter reviews and tests provide reinforcement, are well written and cover all important topics. Finally, I have an excellent instructional computer assembly and repair textbook for my students.
Jody Seidel, Pima Community College
