So, I opted for home study based on the good reviews I'd read that were posted on earlier Mike Meyer's books. Using this book, I was able to pass both tests, just barely. Do I blame the book? In fact the book is quite good. But it does a very thorough job explaining the basics of what a PC Technician might encounter in their first years on the job.
So, don't be surprized if certain topics do seem to have better explanations in the previous edition. The new edition is all about presenting the current exam objectives which emphasize topics like portable computers, smart phones, networking and security. The problem with working with computers is that the hardware and software are constantly changing. In order to keep up with the Joneses, a technician has to know a lot of small details.
Mike Meyer's made sure that no detail was too small to be ignored from those objectives. Read and study the exam tips. They are great bullet points.
The book does cover all the objectives set out by Comp TIA. The exams are just too new. The included CD is somewhat helpful in that the test engine does mimic the exam structure exactly. However, as others have complained, questions per exam aren't enough to prepare a person for the actual exam.
It's a start, but you need more to pass.
That's where Mike Meyer's loses a star rating. And the free online video tutorials, aren't free either. He has excellent hardware tutorial videos posted on his website. If you can afford it, I highly recommend downloading some of those practice question packages and there are different packages available.
The more questions you can answer from the objectives, the better prepared you will be to pass the exams.
Mike Meyer's does not cover the performance questions in the book, but he does mention them on his website. I may not represent the "typical" target for this book as I downloadd it strictly to review CompTIA's Windows troubleshooting protocols; I'm sure my mindset of "let's nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure" when a computer encounters any moderately complex problem is probably not the most conventional at my job I've found it more practical to keep a backup image on the network.
Mike Meyers takes a "let's start at the bottom" approach that I find ideal since I think it's easier to understand a complex subject when I get the building blocks first. I'd say the first quarter to third of the book is focused on the overview of the PC, its basic technology, and the evolution that brought us to the present day. For example, over the course of a few chapters the book covers the basis of computer language the binary system and how the processor physically communicates with the rest of the computer.
He then applies this to describe the Intel processor, an old and very influential design, then explains how that design evolved over time to incorporate new innovations and discoveries to bring the reader to the present day's Intel Core series.
I found the tone throughout well balanced, with the right amount of technical detail mixed with analogies where necessary to promote understanding, and enough humor keep a reader awake. There are also a fair amount of Windows screencaps and diagrams when discussing muddy or dense subjects.
Later chapters move into what you would expect - Windows internals, hard-drives, LANs, networking, mostly with the same thoroughness as earlier chapters, though at times it does feel like the author is simply rattling off information from a list - I found the section on Windows Group Policies especially tedious, but that's Group Policies for you.
Some of the analogies I thought might seem belaboured to a novice; the CPU as a man in a box flipping switches I thought was possibly confusing like, so simple it's actually kind of obtuse to someone who doesn't already know a bit about binary and electronics.
I think this alone would be enough to pass the exams, provided you spend the time needed to actually practice what you can. The specifics the book gets into about troubleshooting particular problems and the decent index would also make this an ok reference to have lying around a shop, though not my first choice.
I know when you're first starting out, it's hard to be patient, especially when you're making your way through a tome as hefty as this, but don't skim and don't think this book is "beneath you" my mistake initially and you'll have a good amount of knowledge under your belt by the time you hit the end.
Internet Protocols in Action"; it comes with a CD containing packet traces you'll be following with an analyzing program called Wireshark. You'd also do well to check out the catalog of No Starch Press, and bookmark them; you'll be coming back to their heavy stuff in a year or two. I found the information in Meyer's book to be helpful, laid out in a clear but not concise way, and, for 1, pages of text able to hold my attention.
Now, Meyer's book does not contain a plethora of exam prep questions. It contained links to Meyer's site when you could download additional prep materials, such as prep tests and prep questions. It had the same amount of required information CompTIA test obkectives without the extra pages of text.
It also had more preparatory questions that made me feel confident on test day. See all 1, reviews. What other items do customers download after viewing this item?
