Practical Electronics. Technical Instruction Manual.
Systems Operation Support, Inc., King of Prussia, PA.
This student instruction manual was developed as a part of "A Study of The Effectiveness of a Military-Type Computer-Based Instructional System When Used in Civilian High School Courses in Electronics and Auto Mechanics." (VT 006 916). The material emphasizes a troubleshooting strategy for repair of equipment based upon a logical and systematic gathering of symptoms, analysis of these, knowledges of pyramidial structure of the equipment design, coupled with a strategy for isolation of the malfunction by levels from major subsystem to section to component, removal and replacement or direct repair of the component, and finally, an operational check to determine that the equipment is performing satisfactorily. The manual includes materials sufficient to train a person with aptitude but no previous electronics training to a level of an outside repairman, and is designed to encompass 12 to 16 weeks depending upon the ages, intelligence, and cultural background of the student. A portable television set is used as the vehicle for the instruction. Workbooks for students and course guides for the instructor are also available. (HC)
