The book covers all of these topics in detail and explains the different methods by which you can improve your study strategies and prepare for your electrical exam. There are sections devoted to preparation for each examination type, and it also explains why certain courses or examinations might be easier than others, and also discusses other factors that may affect your performance on an exam. There is also information on how to practice on practical exam items, how to prepare for the exam in general and test preparation tips for specific types of exams.
There are sections on specific types of exams, including the ASE, or Association of Service Engineers’ Examination, as well as more general electrical engineering examinations such as the NCLEX-PN, or National Council Licensure Examination. The book goes into great detail about these exams and contains complete sample examinations so that students can see how to approach a particular type of exam.
Electrical Designing Practicum: A Practicum in Electrical Engineering provides students with a solid foundation of knowledge in this exciting field, and it includes links to numerous websites offering electrical design training courses, certification programs, and professional references. It also contains sample study plans and step-by-step guides to help with exam preparation.
The book includes a chapter dedicated to electrical design, which addresses the theory behind the design process. The chapter includes detailed discussion on the materials that are needed to create an electrical system, including copper wires, solder, flux, heat shrink tubing, insulating materials, insulation, and wire nuts, among others. The chapters on materials, procedures and skills cover the installation of the wiring, the creation of a functional prototype, and finally the fabrication of the actual electrical system.
The book includes sample tests that can be used as pre-examination requirements for the certification examination ACI or Electrician’s License, as well as test questions for the licensing examination NCLEX.
The book has detailed lists of sample electrical exam questions as well as a series of articles that provide step-by-step guidance in solving exam problems. The book has a section dedicated to electrical design theory and uses examples and practical examples throughout to show students exactly what to do in each situation.
In addition to the chapters on exam preparation, there are chapters on designing, testing and the test, including topics such as the electrical current waveform, DC circuits, resistance, and ampere and voltage, along with sections on the theory of the power supply and ACI. An index is provided that is easy to access and to assist in finding answers to many of the questions that you may have in mind as you are learning and studying for your electrical exam.
Many technical jargon and terms are included in the text, but the author makes sure to explain them in a clear and concise way so that students can understand them easily. You will learn about such items as capacitors, transformers, resistors, inductors, fuses, capacitors, diodes, switches, tests, fuses, fuse holders and transformers as part of this text, but you will also learn about all the materials that are needed to make your own project.
It should be noted that the material covered is not comprehensive enough to prepare you for an exam. The book also fails to mention some important concepts like Ohm’s law, the connection of alternating currents, and the proper way to connect and control electrical appliances such as lamps and fans.
There are numerous diagrams throughout the text that are easy to use and to refer to as references, and it comes with a DVD-ROM that includes an array of design diagrams that can be used as references during the exam. Other than that, there are no instructions or additional information on how to make your own electrical design.
This is an excellent course to take if you want to know more about the electrical world. It is an excellent foundation for your future career and gives you the tools necessary to succeed.
