A+ Essentials 2009: Computer Hardware Components
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
The IT industry has grown by leaps and bounds, but the backbone of that work has always remained the computers themselves. In order for a computer to function correctly it requires specific types of hardware components. This course covers the different types of motherboards, power supplies, storage devices, central processing units, and memory that are needed by computers and how they work in unison to ensure that computers perform as required. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the CompTIA 220-701: A+ Essentials exam which is half of the requirement necessary to acquire the CompTIA A+ certification.
