----End Copy and Paste----

The student should Copy and Paste the above into a Notepad or Word document and print it. Most of the terms below are not actually acronyms, but some are contractions, you should know what words were contracted to create the terms. Then go online and find what each acronym spells out and fill it in on the lines provided. The student should then read a few definitions of each term and write out a definition on the back of a 3x5 card with the acronym on the front of the card. Then practice by shuffling your cards, then spell each one out and then define it. Then flip to the next card. When the student can go through the deck without difficulty a large part of the final exam is in the bag!

Important! Do not forget the acronyms from CET1171 ... You still need to know them in order to get certified and in order to be a professional PC technician!
