As so many have said, over past editions, this latest (#22) is excellent. I think it would be very difficult to find another source as comprehensive, current and well written.

This is truly an incredible book. Virtually everything related to PC hardware is covered in detail. This 21st edition is the latest update and I find I read at least every third edition from cover to cover, even though I am not a computer professional. The writing is quite good and actually pretty entertaining. There indeed is a lot of stuff from previous editions but that is the nature of a book about a rapidly evolving technology. The author works hard to keep the book at a “reasonable” length by taking less used information out and putting it on the companion disk. If you want to know how each hard drive type works or how each modern connector is configured, it’s all in here. About the only complaint I could have is with the book’s title “Upgrading and Repairing PCs” since the book is so much more than that. That title is now as outdated as was the “Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe Trilogy” when the fifth volume came out.

This is a great book to have if building or troubleshooting a PC. It’s very up to date with the latest technologies. I’ve bought the previous two versions when they came out and this latest version doesn’t disappoint. The book also comes with a DVD with interesting how-to information as have previous versions. The contents on the DVD’s for each book are different. Great reference book and usable information. The DVD alone is almost worth the cost of the book.

Stop getting cheated by a bunch of Geeks

All the questions you’ve been afraid to ask get answered here. I’ve got every edition since the first. Scott Mueller knows whats going on that darn PC and he knows how to pass that information on to you so you can not only understand it, but use it to kick your slow under powered PC back into high gear. Stop getting hammered by a bunch of Geeks who only want to sell you extra junk that won’t fix your issues. Fix it yourself the first time and save that cash for a new video card or to max out your ram. No more squads of fools who can’t even get their own machines to work like they should. Get this book and a basic computer tool kit (or just use the screw drivers you already own, but get a static wrist strap) and do it yourself then you’ll know its done right. Unlock the mysteries for yourself.

Excellent refersher and tool

This book is packed full of so much information, you have to just take it one page at a time. I have had experience with computers going all the way back to CP/M on 8bit Zilog processors, and even I have learned many new things in this book. Scott Mueller writes in a very engaging, and very easy to understand way. He has extensive charts and tables, to illustrate or compare different processors, and numerous other hardware. Just the timeline in the beginning of the book is a treasure trove, as you trace the rise of the transistor, which made vacuum tubes obsolete almost overnight. The PC is an incredible complex piece of engineering, and I very strongly believe you must have a passion for it to truly grasp how to successfully diagnose and repair.You will be amazed at how much you thought you knew, that you really don’t. This book is a must have!

It gets better and better

If you were a computer technician and could own just one computer reference book, this should be it. One could spend hours singing the praises of Scott’s outstanding reference series (and many have), but I’ll keep it short here: Get it, refer to it, and when you get bored, read something in it–just for fun! It may seem high-priced, but when you factor in the one-stop-shopping convenience of how-to videos and technical knowledge in one volume (and the electronic versions of the past two editions included with your purchase), it is worth every penny.

Its an awesome book whether you’re a novice or an expert

This is the 6th version of this book I’ve bought. It has become a truly indispensable resource when it comes to assembling and upgrading computers. I got my first one when I was 9 years old and it ignited my passion to take apart computers. Here I am 20+ years later with masters degree in computer engineering. Its an awesome book whether you’re a novice or an expert.
