5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! Sept. 27 2002
By A Customer
Even for a seasoned engineer, there are useful tidbits and tricks in here that can really save you.... Lots of stuff is just common sense, but it's the little nuggets of gold hidden within this book that make it a worthwhile read. If you're just starting your career as an Electrical Engineer or technician, this book will make a tremendous resource. For the amateur, there's lots of good stuff in here such as diagrams for nifty and inexpensive test equipment - learn how to build your own active scope probe for [very little]! Well written and humorous it's not a heavy technical read, but one that will definitely impart some very valuable knowledge.

4.0 out of 5 stars When things aren't working use this book. June 7 1997
By A Customer
When things aren't working in your circuits use
this book to get you started on how to find WHY
things aren't working. This book is a collection
of essays originally published by the author, and
a couple of other contributers in trade magazines.
They in general consist of lists and explanations
of problems and how to fix them. These lists are
grouped by kinds of circuits. I would have liked
to see more specifics on power supply problems
and on Phase Locked Loops and other oscillators.
Of particular use (at least to me)
is the advice on equipping your bench. If you build
huge boards this isn't as valuable as if you build
100 - 200 component circuits. The author has an
overly anti-Spice bias, but his cautions are generally
worth remembering. (I once took a grad course on
the internals of Spice, and another one on the
internals of mechanical simulation programs - they
all require that you understand the problem before
you rely on the computer). Obviously large very
inter-related circuit boards will require more
computer aided design because of the sheer complexity.
This book does tend to attribute a lot of problems
in systems to heat, whereas my most typical problem
is poor mechanical connections of some
sort (bad connectors, solder joints, etc). I use
this book as a reminder of what I need to be
aware of when I have a problem. A lot of the
engineers at HP and elsewhere really like this book, and THEY
are the analog design "water-walkers" that I truly

Trouble shooting analog circuits gives tips on trouble shooting along with extensive analog quirks in common components. If you didn't know that cermet pots are better, there is a danger in using too many ceramic bypass caps and the capacitance of the human finger nail then you NEED this book. P.S. The other book is the art of electronics by Horowitz and Hill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for serious engineers... June 30 2003
By Ken
A fun read, and an excellent reference filling the huge gap between datasheets and most texts. A must have for anyone who touches hardware. I can't count the number of times I've gone to this book whenever I'm not quite using a device as intended, or I've got a sinking feeling I'm about to shoot myself in the foot with a design. I own *lots* of books and this book is packed with useful info that isn't found in any of them and isn't all that intuitive to start with.
