Ok so i have landed a job at a new Audio Visual superstore, i have a basic knowledge, well a fair bit away from nothing, but im still worried. I have spent the last week settting all the gear up for a big demo room.

Tomorrow is the first day of opening, and my weakest area of knowledge would be these subjects-

DLP Tv's
Rear pro LCDS
Plamas
Set top boxs ie, SD/HDTV

If you know of any handly links or give a quick rundown on small specifics that would be awesome. Just dont want a nerdy customer to come in and go, so does this do that? Ahhh!

Thanks guys

Good luck with the new job. I've been selling A/V gear for 3 1/2 years and still get a kick out of it.

Does your store offer any training for sales associates? I find it difficult to belive that they would open a new store without making sure the staff had a basic understanding of the things they sell.

Study not only what each one stands for but and most importantly the pros and cons of both. That to me is the true requirement of a salesman. Good luck.
