About Charles J. Brooks

Patricia L. Barton. Pat Barton is a technical instructor at Boston University. She began teaching network administration on a one-to-one basis in the late 1980s, and moved to formal classroom instruction in 1992. Her initial focus was on Novell's NetWare product line, but when customer demand began to shift to Windows NT 3.51 in 1995, she became certified to support and teach the full line of Microsoft operating systems. She has been working heavily with Windows 9x, NT, 2000, XP, and associated products since that time. Pat began working seriously with Windows 2000 in July of 1999, and began teaching Beta 3 classes in September of 1999.

Since 1994, Pat has spent a great deal of time working in Boston University's Computer Career Programs. Her focus has been on teaching Windows network administration to individuals going through career changes into the technology field, most with little or no prior experience. This has given her a strong background on methods of presentation and instruction that are effective with this type of student, and also a good perspective on the needs and mind set of entry-level students trying to break into the field. She is regularly involved in the development of courseware and lab materials to supplement the Microsoft authorized curriculum for BU.

Pat currently holds MCSE, MCT, CCNP, and CCDP certification status.

Brian Alley. Mr. Alley has been in the PC industry since 1985, working as a contract consultant primarily at law enforcement agencies installing networks and custom software. Joining Boston University's Corporate Education Center in 1992 as a contract instructor, Brian developed their first PC Service and Support course. This involved writing training materials, labs, and course outlines for PC Service and Support. Additionally, Brian taught several Novell NetWare courses in data communications, network, and application programs.

In 1995 Brian joined BUCEC as a full-time staff instructor, becoming the lead instructor for PC Service and Support and the A+ Certification programs. In his role as lead instructor he regularly reviews new training materials, writes new labs, and qualifies new instructors. He has been contracted by a major computer training material publisher to serve as technical editor for three books currently in print and is working on forthcoming materials for Network+.

As an MCT and MCSE, Brian is currently certified to teach over 20 Microsoft courses, including Windows 95, Windows 98, and several Windows NT and network-related topics. He has served as a Subject Matter Expert for the 1995 A+ exam rewrite, and as a Beta tester for A+, Network +, Windows 98, Windows 2000, and several other products. He has served on the A+ Advisory Committee and is currently working with the CompTIA Internet+ Advisory Committee. He is currently A+, iNet+, and Network + certified, in addition to being an MCT, MCP, and MCSE.

Charles J. Brooks. Mr. Brooks is currently the President of Marcraft International Corporation, located in Pasco, Washington. He has authored several books on subjects ranging from electronic speech synthesis, pneumatic instrumentation, and linear integrated circuits to introductory computer hardware courses, IBM PC peripheral troubleshooting and repair books, and A+ Certification preparation manuals. He currently serves on the CompTIA A+, Network+, and Internet+ Advisory Committees.

A former electronics instructor and technical writer, Charles has taught and written on technical subjects for more than 18 years. At Marcraft and eITPrep, Charles oversees the development and production of a variety of technical book titles.
