Confused by basic electricity concepts? Problem solved Schaum's Outline of Basic Electricity covers the fundamentals of electricity and electric circuits. Written as a complement to vocational and technical courses, the book reviews digital and computer technology and the more advanced level of expertise required of technicians in these fields. Chapters focus on particular subjects as they are related to electric circuits, so you can target specific areas or tackle the subject as a whole. You will also learn how to solve circuit values in more complex series and parallel circuits.
