DMM tips, anyone?

November 26, 2012 Dan KB6NU

Now that I’ve published the No-Nonsense Extra Class License Study Guide, I’ve been thinking about what my next book should be. At this point I’m leaning towards The No-Nonsense Guide to Digital Multimeters. I have even started outlining the book:

  • What is a digital multimeter?
    • Compare to analog multimeter
  • Digital multimeter basics
    • Measurement types
    • Inputs
    • Range
    • Zero
    • Safety
  • Making measurements with a DMM
    • Simple DC circuit
      • voltage
      • current
    • AC measurements
      • true RMS
    • Resistance
  • Tips for Choosing a DMM
  • Hints and Kinks

I’d love to get your feedback on this.

What else should I add to this outline?

What would you like to know about DMMs?

Do you have any tips for using DMMs that you’d like to share with others? (If I use your tip in the book, I’ll send you a free copy when it’s finished.)
