Upgrading and Repairing PCs is the runaway best-selling PC hardware book of all time and one of the best-selling computer books ever!
This 15th Edition is loaded with the most up-to-date hardware information anywhere. World-renowned PC hardware expert Scott Mueller has taught thousands in his weeklong seminars and millions through his books, videos and articles. This edition contains hundreds of pages of new material, including the latest in processor and motherboard technologies.
The DVD offers you more than two hours of high quality video plus a searchable hard drive database, a searchable vendor database, and thousands of pages of legacy PC hardware coverage that can no longer be included in the printed book, but that are invaluable to PC techs servicing older computers!
Review by Michael J Woznicki (Holland, MA USA)
Ever heard the saying “It gets better with time”, this could be the phrase to describe the 15th edition of one the best computer technician manuals on the market today. Scott Mueller has released the latest edition of Upgrading and Repairing Pcs and this is the best one so far.
I have using theses books since the 9th edition and each time the new book is released I find even more information and always find the book(s) to up to date and technically accurate. I am teaching a class in A+ and this is certainly a reference to have handy for the students.
There is over 1500 pages covering it all, from Motherboards, CPUs and memory to storage, networking and troubleshooting and just about everything in between. Mueller has become a highly respected and trusted author and this book bears out his great technical abilities. Anyone in the technical field needs to have this book as part of their library.
The technical details, from pinouts to slot pin breakdown is nothing short of amazing and the amount of information is simply incredible. There is information in this book that I have not found anywhere else.
While this book is not written to any single certification exam, you will find that it is tailored to the A+ or CST exams. The book includes a DVD with 2 hours of video clips to learn from. The only thing I found was that if you don’t own a DVD player you have top go tot he website to download the clips, I think a CD should be included for those without DVDs.
Overall this is simply a must have for any and all field and depot technicians. Those working a Help Desk should have a copy at the right hand. Mueller has simply outdone all other editions.
