IT Essentials Lab Manual: PC Hardware and Software v4.1 is the only authorized lab manual for the Cisco Networking Academy IT Essentials course. The fundamentals part of the course, chapters 1-10, will help students prepare for the CompTIA A+ Essentials exam (220-701), which covers the fundamentals of computer technology, networking, and security, and validates the communication skills and professionalism required of all entry-level IT professionals. The advanced part of the course, chapters 11-16, will help students prepare for the CompTIA A+ Practical Application exam (220-702), which builds on the CompTIA A+ Essentials knowledge and skills, with more of a hands-on orientation and scenarios in which troubleshooting and tools must be applied to resolve problems. Students must pass both exams to earn the CompTIA A+ certification. While extensive online study resources and comprehensive textbooks are available, many students and instructors have requested a low-cost printed resource that can be used to study in places where Internet access may not be available. This booklet is that resource. Drawn directly from the online curriculum, it covers every skill and competency covered in the latest IT Essentials PC Hardware and Software course. This booklet enables students to study offline, highlight key points, and take handwritten notes. All topics are correlated directly to online web pages, helping students easily switch between offline and online content.
