Chapter 14. Using the Command Prompt

The command prompt provides technicians with another way to accomplish tasks. Many end users can get by without ever using the command prompt. However, it provides a wealth of tools for technicians and administrators and is extremely valuable. When you’re taking the live exams, don’t be surprised if you come across a performance-based question that requires you to use the command prompt. Instead of an answer consisting of multiple choices, you might see a command prompt. You’ll need to enter the appropriate commands to answer the question correctly.
