UNDERSTAND, MAINTAIN, AND IMPROVE THE ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS IN YOUR HOME AND AUTO

If you've ever felt lost when choosing a home entertainment system, wondered how to test an electrical outlet to see if it's grounded, or puzzled over how to make the Wi-Fi in the front room reach the back―then this book is for you! Making Everyday Electronics Work: A Do-It-Yourself Guide explains how electricity works and shows you how to take care of the electronics and electrical systems around your house.

Save time and money by doing your own electrical diagnostics with help from this practical resource!
