5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it. March 22, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If your looking for a good introduction to trouble shooting with the how to use test equipment in circuits, this is it. I bought four
books on the subject at the same time and found this book and Electronic Trouble shooting by Tomal and Wimer to be the clear winners.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Great Idea is Worth the Book March 13, 2008
By JB
Format:Paperback
My goal is circuit troubleshooting communication gear. There is one terrific idea in this book that is worth far more than what I paid. There is a very simple circuit to use in conjunction with an oscilloscope that proves to be a super way to test components. Buy this book one for that alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good general book on component testing November 8, 2005
By hk538
Format:Paperback
Doesn't cover a whole bunch, but does make for good bathroom reading. Good beginnner book. The section on DIODE TESTING has a mistake. Horn has the diode discription and schematic symbol completely backwards. Good starter book nonetheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars learned a lot April 11, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OK, so I'm new to electronics. But for this not being a reference book, I sure learned a lot. Not just about electronics, but some really useful things. Like how to not blow up caps when you test them. There's a lot of good info here for a novice like me. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to Test...Electronics July 4, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Purchased book used. Advertised as in "good condition" on Amazon. In actuality, the book is in excellent condition. Although, somewhat dated, copyright 1993, it now could be retitled, "How to Test Not So Much Everything Electronic", it does contain much useful information. I am especially happy with the current test methods outlined for power supplies and transistor bias.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, almost like a technicians notebook! October 21, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is filled with practical knowledge! Applicable immediately to whatever you are trying to fix. There are a lot of "quick and dirty" test circuits to build that will help you diagnose and troubleshoot circuits.

Only a few chapters into the book I already see it's potential. I only wish there was an updated version covering some of the newer electronic devices. Very useful to the hobbyist as well!!

Cheers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect just needs a little updating July 28, 2011
By Skydog
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is clearly the best book I have seen yet on electronic repair. Last updated in 1993 so unfortunately still discusses obsolete technology like VCR and CRTs. Also a problem is that the author pretty much says you are crazy if you try to do a repair without a schematic. Well these days what company offers schematic diagrams? Other problem is that the books binding is really poor. The pages come loose almost immediately. Despite these issues the book is well written with diagrams where needed and just the right amount of theory to balance things out.
