Match LabSim Content to Your Textbook for A+ and Network+

Have you seen the recently-developed courseware maps for LabSim A+ and Network+? Instructors, these new course maps are for you!

Although LabSim courses are designed to stand alone as a full curriculum for IT subjects, some instructors also supplement LabSim training with textbooks. However, without a chart that shows instructors exactly which chapters and sections in the text match up to the sections of LabSim, instructors have a lot more work on their hands planning their course schedules.

TestOut has done this work for you by creating useful course maps. Charts based on the objectives of CompTIA’s A+ and Network+ exams show exactly what sections of the corresponding LabSim courses cover those objectives, as well as what chapters of the textbook cover the same objectives.

If you use any of the following texts, LabSim courseware maps are available to help you quickly coordinate LabSim content with your text:

  • Jeans Andrews, A+ Guide to Managing and Maintaining Your PC, 7th Edition
  • Jeans Andrews, A+ Guide to Hardware: Managing, Maintaining, and Troubleshooting, 5th Edition
  • Jean Andrews, A+ Guide to Software: Managing, Maintaining, and Troubleshooting, 5th Edition
  • Mike Meyers, CompTIA A+ Certification Exam Guide, 7th Edition
  • Tamara Dean, Network+ Guide to Networks, 5th Edition

A small selection from the LabSim A+ course map to Mike Meyers's textbook shows you how the charts are organized:
