About this book
The CompTIA IT Fundamentals certification is a vendor-neutral, entry-level assessment of a systems support specialist's proficiency. The CompTIA IT Fundamentals certification validates your skills as a system support specialist and gets your foot in the door to a successful IT career. It is also the first step toward more advanced certifications such as CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ as well as Microsoft and Cisco certifications. The IT department is instrumental in keeping any organization on its feet. As support staff, you will be called upon to assess and repair common problems, set up and configure workstations, address individual issues, and much more. The CompTIA IT Fundamentals Study Guide: Exam FC0-U61, Second Edition is your ideal companion for comprehensive exam preparation. Covering 100 percent of the latest exam objectives, this book contains everything you need to know to pass with flying colors—the first time! You’ll learn your way around hardware and software, conduct installations, and connect to networks to get a workstation up and running smoothly; you’ll also develop the knowledge base needed to identify compatibility and security issues, mitigate risks, and conduct all-important preventative maintenance that keeps the end-user problem-free.

Acknowledgments

First and foremost, I need to thank my family. Without their support and patience, I would never be able to work on projects like this.

This edition was more special than most, in that it left me with an unusual sense of pride as well as a realization of how long the road has been. When I wrote my first book, I dedicated it to my still-baking-in-the-oven oldest daughter. Now, she has enough expertise to be my SME and first proofreader for the programming chapter. She can code circles around me, and I’m proud of her (and my other kids too!).

They say it takes a village to produce a book, and it always amazes me at the number of people who are involved. I have been fortunate to work with a great Sybex crew yet again. Gary Schwartz was the development editor. Thanks, Gary, for keeping me on track and answering all of my mundane questions. Kenyon Brown was the acquisitions editor for this book—thank you, Kenyon, for asking me to take on this book.

In addition, Christine O’Connor was an excellent production editor; I appreciate her professionalism and pragmatism. Jon Buhagiar and Chris Crayton were my technical editors—thank you both for all of your ideas; you really made this book better. To Kim Wimpsett, the copy editor, thank you so much for dealing with my consistent grammar mistakes. I may not have the best grammar, but at least I am consistent about it!
