Now updated to MultiSIM? 9, this workbook supplements basic DC/AC instruction and demonstrates how to troubleshoot faulty circuits using MultiSIM as the standard tool. Working on the computer, readers will learn to make measurements, determine faults, replace components, and test results using the same processes and techniques that would be used in an actual hardware lab. This highly engaging approach quickly builds the skill and confidence levels necessary to do live circuit troubleshooting in real-world situations. Using MultiSIM: Troubleshooting DC/AC Circuits, 4E can also be used as a stand-alone guide for fostering a thorough understanding of basic circuit fundamentals.
