Owen Bishops Initial Course starts with the basics of electricity and component kinds, and introduces students to practical work nearly straightaway. No prior knowledge of electronics is assumed.
The approach is student centred with Self-Test features to check understanding, and numerous Activities suitable for practicals, homework and other assignments. New Multiple Option Questions are incorporated throughout the text to aid student learning. Key facts, formulae and definitions are highlighted to aid revision, and theory is backed up by numerous examples within the book. Every chapter ends with a set of issues which consists of exam-style questions with numerical answers supplied.
This text is perfect for a wide range of introductory courses in electronics, technology, physics and engineering. The coverage has been carefully matched to the newest UK syllabuses including GCSE Electronics, GCSE Design Technology, Engineering GCSE and City Guilds competence-based courses like Level 2 NVQs.
The second edition now has extra applicability to BTEC Initial Electronics from Edexcel with coverage of fundamental topics needed by students of this qualification, in addition to other important new topics that reflect recent technological developments. The result is really a text that meets the requirements of students on all Level 2 electronics units and courses, with a broad coverage which will probably be of direct relevance to any reader commencing study of this subject, or much more advanced readers requiring a handy revision guide. New material for the second edition consists of: kinetic energy; temperature and resistance; sawtooth waveform; fundamentals of digital communication and information transmission; industrial processes; cells and batteries; wind and solar power; CDs, DVDs, mobile phones; along with the newest LED technology.
