Will ' Testing Electronics Components by Jestine Yong ' really help you?

One of the most crucial parts of fixing guitar amps or anything electronic is testing electronic components correctly.

I have checked out this guide and have found it extremely good for the beginner, and as a refresher for the professional engineer.

I've not found such a practical guide on the internet anywhere before. There's plenty of theory around but it's not always easy to understand, so what Jestine Yong has done is to put together really useful, practical books with much needed techniques that will help you understand how to test suspect electronic components and fix your gear quickly and easily.
