Excellent book for full review of all matters dealing with electronics: formulas, description of components, theory, symboligy, schematics, in a pocket book. Easy to read examples and explainations.

There is a ton of great information in here... All the formulas you've forgotten, techniques you used to know... It has saved my behind on several occasions when I had to complete the procedure but was just a bit fuzzy remembering the formula or technique. A great book for a quick refresher, or to pull obscure info when you need it!
