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
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
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.
