Appendix A: Glossary

Our CompTIA A+ Core 2: Exam 220-1102 courseware comes with lab exercises in the book. Complete classroom setup instructions are included in the book's Introduction.

Regarding the hardware components used in the labs: none are exotic, and most are found in a typical computer or computer toolkit. Ideally the instructor or training center would provide them for use during the class. Instructors don’t need to have absolutely all of them, especially for each student. It is more of a “wish list” for giving students a complete hands-on demonstration of all components discussed in the hardware portion of the course.  If availability is a limitation for a specific component, instructors can demonstrate a single device for the entire class, or students can perform online research about common models and their features.

Customers can also choose to purchase Online Labs for the course. For the hardware labs, the online versions are simulations that take having actual hardware out of the picture. The online labs greatly simplify setup.
