This book offers a complete treatment of both digital and analog instruments; their operation, applications, and limitations. Measurement methods and measurement precision are also covered.

Commencing with explanations of Units, Dimensions, and Standards, the text treats Measurement Errors, then covers Electromechanical Instruments in one chapter and Analog Electronic VOMs in another.

A single chapter is devoted to the explanation of Digital Instrument Basics, and another to Digital Voltmeters and Frequency Meters. Instrument Calibration is also explained, and methods of measuring resistance, inductance, and capacitance are covered in detail.

The operation and application of Oscilloscopes, both analog and digital, is comprehensively treated, as are a wide variety of other laboratory-type electronic instruments.

Learning objectives are offered at the beginning of each chapter, practical worked examples are provided throughout, and end-of-chapter review questions and problems are included.
