Thank you for the teacher's material on the Complete Computer Repair 2nd ed. Textbook. This material has made teaching this material from your book the most helpful of any material I have ever used. I have been teaching for 20 years, and this is the most complete and user friendly information I have used. Again thank you and keep up the good work. Loren Niemeyer, Sauk Valley Community College I am very impressed We have already adopted Schmidt's 2nd edition for use with my class at Springfield Technical Community College in Springfield, MA, and I am very impressed with it. I like the updated information and the addition of some review questions in Chp 6 on Troubleshooting. The end of the chapter exercises make preparing classroom activities much easier.

Ms. Schmidt's explanations are straight forward and well... read more

Overall it does a good job of explaining a lot of technical terms. It can get very complex sometimes though. And a few times it has been down right confusing. There is one "Tech Tip" on how parity works that did not make any sense at all. My teacher had to show me a different way of explaining that she had setup to address this part in the book specifically. This has happened a few times with this book. My teacher is actually looking at another book for us to use for the A+ course. The book is filled with a lot of very good information to know. It also has small sections... read more
