PROSGood coverage of test equipmentGood anecdotes that demonstrate basic methodologyGood basic techniques for fixing common consumer electronicsCONSIt won't tell you how to diagnose and fix everything electronicI'm an engineer by training, and I tend to take words literally. So when I read the title of this book, then observed that rather than an encyclopedia volume 1, these 316 pages were the entire book, I was dubious, and doubly so when I read the back cover where it promises "Master the Art of Electronics Repair," and how to repair and extend the life of "all kinds" of solid-state devices. I have read electronics books for a few decades. When I noted the publisher, Tab, I said to myself, "uh-huh". Because if there are a few things I have learned about Tab Books in particular in my years of reading them, it is these:1. They tend to over-sell their books in the title and abstract for the book2. If the book features projects, the circuits are often not tested and sometimes can't work as presented3. Except for the cover, the production quality is often substandard compared to other publishersIf I was the author of the book, I would not be comfortable writing a book that promised to teach you how to fix everything electronic and to make you a master in 316 pages, because it CAN'T BE DONE.I wondered when I saw a picture on the cover of a computer hard drive with a magnification of the electronics, because when a hard drive fails, I think it's best to do your best to recover data from it, then you move to a new one that is less likely to fail again. But the author does have a technique he says may be able to save a failing drive.
