Summary

Summary

Todays electrical/electronic technician or engineer must have a thorough understanding of electrical principles, multimeter and oscilloscope use, soldering techniques, assembly, and repair. Applied Electricity and Electronics provides the necessary academic and skills preparation in an easy-to-follow format. Unique features include a Math for Electricity chapter that lays the groundwork for studying electricity and electronics. The Graphs chapter teaches students to interpret graphs specifically for electrical and electronic purposes. How-to chapters on electrical meters and the oscilloscope provide a unique blend of theory and application.
