Reviews for CompTIA A+ Core 1 Exam: Guide to Computing Infrastructure

I taught my course without MindTap and my greatest challenge was finding equipment and interesting lab exercises to reinforce the skills being taught. MindTap makes this so easy for me and it is much more effective for student learning
