When I get a new book in a subject in which I'm well versed, I like to go to specific spots to see how they are explained by the author.After a quick look, I immediately noticed something I didn't like in this book. In some of the series circuit diagrams, instead of showing the circuits in purely a square or rectangular format-----there are these little lines extending out to nowhere. I remember back to when I was first learning about electricity, and something as small as that would have given me fits trying to figure it out. So far, that is the only negative I've found.On the plus side, this book does a good job of explaining potential and current instrument transformers; it could use some examples with calculations. Although limited in length, there is a good section showing how to wire up buck-boost transformers; also, a few more examples with calculations would be most helpful to those just learning the basics. The book has very colorful graphics which is a definite plus.
Exactly what I was expecting, promptly delivered
Excellent text for the money!
