Within Ron Gilster’s 800 page PC Repair Bench Book is a get-in, get-out Power Pack guide that covers hardware such as motherboards, storage devices, and printers. The book also includes a CD Rom that contains a host of utilities which many users may wish to try. On the CD you will have access to topics such as understanding and repairing motherboards; updating and optimizing memory and aging systems; diagnosing common PC problems and performing routine maintenance; Installing and configuring system upgrades; working safely with the electrical components of a PC; Troubleshooting peripherals, storage systems and devices, sight and sound systems, and more.
While his book may not meet the demands of those technicians looking for the latest fixes or for those readers (especially those outside of the US) looking to work on legacy PCs it present facts, concepts, processes, and applications for repairing PCs that many will find useful. Additionally, for those readers who are experienced, this book is a decent study tool for the A+Exam and since it covers such a wide-range host of issues this book would make a good addition to a technical library.
