This book is the first of the new revision of the Sinclair & Lewis series designed specifically to meet the needs of the new RVQ syllabuses and NVQs from City & Guilds / EEB and EMTA.
Electronic and Electrical Servicing uses a larger page size and a new, attractive layout to best advantage. The text is also more accessible, broken up by features that encourage student-centred learning. The result is a throughly modern textbook that is well suited to courses with reduced contact time and an emphasis on independent learning.
This book builds the underpinning knowledge of electronic and electrical systems needed by all service engineers, and thus is designed for brown and white goods NVQ/RVQ students. It also continues to be the ideal text for City & Guilds 2240 part 1.
With the main migration from 224 to the new schemes occurring in September 1999 this book will be a vital support for anyone planning a new course, and all students who will need an up-to-date book tailored specifically for their qualification.
This title replaces Servicing Electronic Systems Volume 1.
Essential information required to gain qualifications
Well-known and respected authors
Accessible and easy to follow for all students

Ian Sinclair was born in 1932 in Tayport, Fife, and graduated from the University of St. Andrews in 1956. In that year, he joined the English Electric Valve Co. in Chelmsford, Essex, to work on the design of specialised cathode-ray tubes, and later on small transmitting valves and TV transmitting tubes. In 1966, he became an assistant lecturer at Hornchurch Technical College, and in 1967 joined the staff of Braintree College of F.E. as a lecturer. His first book, "Understanding Electronic Components" was published in 1972, and he has been writing ever since, particularly for the novice in Electronics or Computing. The interest in computing arose after seeing a Tandy TRS80 in San Francisco in 1977, and of his 204 published books, about half have been on computing topics, starting with a guide to Microsoft Basic on the TRS80 in 1979. He left teaching in 1984 to concentrate entirely on writing, and has also gained experience in computer typesetting, particularly for mathematical texts. He has recently visited Seattle to see Microsoft at work, and to remind them that he has been using Microsoft products longer than most Microsoft employees can remember. Ian Sinclair is the author of the following Made Simple books: Lotus 1-2-3- (2.4 DOS version) MS-DOS (up to version 6.22) PagePlus for Windows 3.1 Hard drives He is also the author of many other books published under our Newnes imprint.Visit Ian's website at http://website.lineone.net/~ian_sinclair
Geoff Lewis has spent many years in most branches of engineering including: motor vehicles, aeronautical, communication, telecommunication, production - as an engineer, teacher, lecturer, technical author. Geoff has a keen interest in environmental engineering including hydropower generated inventions. He has written on most of the above subjects, including 10 books, many journal articles and given public lectures. Geoff has long appreciated that knowledge is never wasted and that learning is a life long adventure. He has been told on many occasions that he has the ability to express complex concepts in a fairly easily understandable manner - at least this attribute is at the back of his mind when writing.
