Actually books like this are not that obsolete as really the tips they give will stand true honestly if it's referring to how to install something like a CPU or memory very little has changed and as for connections on the motherboard again very little has changed so if you feel the need to buy this book I wouldn't necessarily worried about it being too out of date as installation for components has not really changed since this book has been written 2009 or 2015 when considering building a PC however if you want something more current why not watch a video about PC building? It would be free of chearge and would still give you the same result of tutoring
Thanks Madman! I think I'm going to get this book. And yes, I am watching videos and reading online tutorials, and I'd love some links if you have any favorites!
it's just that I work a lot and am either in transit or have downtime or breaks but the internet is not available to me (I don't have an expensive phone).
For whatever reason, I found when I was in school that reading textbooks during these periods was really good for me. Its a habit I've gotten into I guess.
There is research that shows people retain more when they read from real paper rather than screens. All my professors gave online reading assignments in a pdf format to encourage us to print it out, and some required us to because they saw such a huge difference in grades between people who brought paper to class and people with tablets or laptops. I really do think it makes a difference.
