I would rate this in my opition as a not buy!
lou
There is a very simple circuit to use in conjunction with an oscilloscope that proves to be a super way to test components.

I only had a small chance to read it, but what I have read so far is good.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

After reading this! From Front to back. I would rate this in my opition as a not buy! Its a 3rd edition: copy write 1993. This book has not kept up with changes in the eletronics field. Since 1993. It devotes a whole chapter on using a oscilloscope. Which uses the older type scopes. It has a whole chapter. On volt meters. Which is out of date. This field has widen on the type of meters in the market now. The first thing I did notice was the illustration. (No color or B & W pictures) Which, where a little cartoonist looking. It has a chapter on testing TVs. On using the old picture tube with vacuum tubes. On page 194 it shows a illustration on building your own Vaccuum tube tester. If you can find a TV that still uses tubes. It also has a page on 185 on testing Phono Cartridges with a scope. It does talk about IC near the end of the book.

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!
