You will need all the items listed below for the Advanced DC and Advanced AC classes.  All the prices are estimated. 

USED equipment may be available here.  If you purchase these items, please let me know.

Item #1

Estimated Price:  $100 Grob's Basic Electronics 10/e, Fundamentals of DC and AC with Circuits Simulations CD (Hardcover).  I found a great price at .  You can use the one with the green cover (shown below) or one with a pink looking cover that has resistors on the front (2006).  If you buy a used book, be sure it has the Circuits Simulations CD with it!  The CD contains circuits that we will retrieve into our Multisim program.

 NOTE:  Some of my college students have reported to me that they have found the book for free in a PDF format on the Internet.  Look for "Grob's Basic Electronics 10th Ed PDF."
