Review:

This second-edition begins with an overview of basic electronic components, common component failures, testing equipment and testing methods. The following ten chapters each focus on a particular device class, with an explanation of the basic functioning of the device followed by some cleaning, troubleshooting and repair information. The final chapter covers general-purpose troubleshooting. While not comprehensive, this resource is valuable for beginners. ( Library Journal 2004-02-01)

by James K. Deane, Library Assistant at the Emporia Public Library, Kansas

An introductory overview of basic electronic components, common component failures, and testing equipment and methods is followed by ten chapters that focus on ten particular device classes, with an explanation of the basic functioning of the device along with some cleaning, maintenance, and repair information. The final chapter covers general-purpose troubleshooting. While not comprehensive, this is valuable for novices. (Library Journal 2004-02-01)

This update of the 1998 edition explains the practical side of electronics--troubleshooting problems, testing, repair, and servicing. Although the reader may not learn all the basics of electronics here, there is certainly a lot to be learned about resolving typical problems with common household items.
