The Barnes & Noble Review
Businesses are using more fiber optics than ever. Residential fiber is finally moving from “dream” to “reality.” That means lots more jobs for technicians. To get one, master the technology, and earn the Electronics Technicians Association’s FOI and FOT certifications -- with help from this book.

It covers everything: concepts, principles, safety, components, techniques, design, testing, troubleshooting, and more. The authors systematically discuss single- and multi-mode fiber; every form of cable; splicing techniques; connectors, light sources, detectors, receivers, passive components, and multiplexers. There’s a full chapter on design, including link performance analysis and power budgets.

Start with the pre-assessment test, then work your way through the 10-20 review questions at the end of every chapter. Use the CD-ROM’s 150 flashcards. Take both complete sample exams. By the time you’re done, you’ll be ready -- for both your exam and your new career. Bill Camarda, from the July 2005 Read Only
