Format: Paperback
I bought this book at the same time as my first ever Digital Multimeter and hoped that it would provide me with a decent start in my quest to be able to problem-solve electrical issues at home.

On flicking through the first few pages, i was surprised to find that the author was just talking through the difference between analogue and digital multimeters. Seeing as i had already bought mine, it was irrelevant.

The book was first published in 1988 and is not an easy read. It comes across as way too complicated and i think it needs a drastic overhaul to bring it up to todays standards of 'help' or 'reference' books.

I want to be able to test for example a heating element to see if the circuit is damaged. I don't know where or how to connect the multimeter probes, or to then interpret the information - that is what i was hoping this book would teach me and sadly it fails.

I read the speel on the web page that said that this book was for the compleat novice who wished to be able to get the most from either a analogue or digital multimeter and would show how to understand simple electrical checks. My heart sank when on the opening pages it said that an understanding of ohms law was needed and then went on to detail through digrams diffrent circuits that looked like odd shaped lines and letters that meant nothing to me. I can only assume that this persons meaning of novice and mine are not the same as what he has written means next to nothing to me, if like me you are a compleat novice this is not the book that you require, it's a bit like a computer when you can get to grips with the language they use you stand a chance of understanding what is written.

This little handbook is useful but demands a level of technical know-how that some buyers will not posses. Not a guide for the uninitiated.

This book is just too ernest to be a useful reference: I'm sure it's very thorough but like an old fashioned text book

Format: Paperback
Not so much a book as a booklet.
A booklet printed on very poor quality paper and poor illustrations.
Similar content can be had on the Net for free.
Don't touch with barge pole.

A truly horrible book - I can honestly think of no redeeming feature at all - simply money wasted.

Format: Paperback
I have a fairly good understanding of electrical workings and thought this book would hone these skills. In particular I wanted some theory on testing components such as motorized valves and pumps. This book did not help in any way at all. Most pages contain written text; diagrams and sketches are few and far between. The style is rather dated. You have to read large quantities of text to get to where you want as opposed to more modern methods of graphics and sketches. The limited sketches are also only in black or white. This book is aimed at electronics engineers who already have a thorough understanding of the subject.
