Electronic and Electrical Servicing Level 3 is the key to success in City & Guilds / Electronics Examination Board courses in electronic servicing, providing a thorough grounding in the electronics and electrical principles required by service engineers.
Ian Sinclair and Geoff Lewis have been the leading authors of books for electronic servicing courses for over 20 years, helping thousands of students through their college courses and NVQs into successful careers.
This textbook is designed to provide complete coverage of the four core units of the new Level 3 Progression Award from EEB / C&G (6958): Electrical and Electronics Servicing (Consumer / Commercial Electronics). It also remains appropriate for City & Guilds 2240 Part 2 and ideal to provide underpinning knowledge for Level 3 NVQs from C&G and EMTA.
Electronic and Electrical Servicing Level 3 is the new title replacing Servicing Electronic Systems: Basic Principles and Circuitry, Volume 2 Part 1 (ISBN: 1-85628-167-1).
It complements the new Level 2 core text: Electrical and Electronic Servicing Level 2 (ISBN: 0-7506-5423-6) which is the successor to Volume 1 of the Servicing Electronic Systems series.
Endorsed by the Electronics Examining Board for the the new Level 3 Progression Award (also covers 2240 Part 2)Covers all 5 core units of the Level 3 Progression Award in one book Based on the classic Servicing Electronic Systems series by Sinclair & Lewis.

About the Author
Ian Sinclair was born in 1932 in Tayport, Fife, and graduated from the University of St. Andrews in 1956. In that year, he joined the English Electric Valve Co. in Chelmsford, Essex, to work on the design of specialised cathode-ray tubes, and later on small transmitting valves and TV transmitting tubes. In 1966, he became an assistant lecturer at Hornchurch Technical College, and in 1967 joined the staff of Braintree College of F.E. as a lecturer. His first book, “Understanding Electronic Components” was published in 1972, and he has been writing ever since, particularly for the novice in Electronics or Computing. The interest in computing arose after seeing a Tandy TRS80 in San Francisco in 1977, and of his 204 published books, about half have been on computing topics, starting with a guide to Microsoft Basic on the TRS80 in 1979. He left teaching in 1984 to concentrate entirely on writing, and has also gained experience in computer typesetting, particularly for mathematical texts. He has recently visited Seattle to see Microsoft at work, and to remind them that he has been using Microsoft products longer than most Microsoft employees can remember. Ian Sinclair is the author of the following Made Simple books: Lotus 1-2-3- (2.4 DOS version) MS-DOS (up to version 6.22) PagePlus for Windows 3.1 Hard drives He is also the author of many other books published under our Newnes imprint.Visit Ian's website at http://website.lineone.net/~ian_sinclair
Geoff Lewis has spent many years in most branches of engineering including: motor vehicles, aeronautical, communication, telecommunication, production - as an engineer, teacher, lecturer, technical author. Geoff has a keen interest in environmental engineering including hydropower generated inventions. He has written on most of the above subjects, including 10 books, many journal articles and given public lectures. Geoff has long appreciated that knowledge is never wasted and that learning is a life long adventure. He has been told on many occasions that he has the ability to express complex concepts in a fairly easily understandable manner - at least this attribute is at the back of his mind when writing.
