Useful, but in need of serious editing,
This review is from: Build Your Own Electronics Workshop: Everything You Need to Design a Work Space, Use Test Equipment, Build and Troubleshoot Circuits (TAB Electronics Technician Library) (Paperback)
Overall, I found this to be a helpful book as I try to re-kindle my interest in electronics after many years away from the hobby. It contains much good information and a great deal of detail with respect to setting up a home electronics workshop. In addition to suggesting commercially available products it also offers plans and parts lists for home built testing equipment. It would have been more useful if the author had provided PCB diagrams for the various projects outlined or a least a source for these boards.
My major complaint is that the book needs some serious editing. I have not read the whole book yet, but I have come across several sentences that were clearly overlooked in the editing process. Parts of the book are needlessly repeated almost word for word from earlier sections. The whole book is in much need of a critical re-editing and corrections.
Apart from these problems I did find it a helpful and useful addition to my library of electronics books.
