|Section 1: Introduction to Metric Units|
After this lesson, you will be able to identify the metric prefixes and understand how they are used. For example, you will know the difference between milliamps and microamps, or between megavolts and kilovolts.
Metric Prefixes Quiz
|Section 2: Resistor Color Codes|
Using the color code chart provided, you will be able to look at any resistor that has the color band codes, and determine the exact value of that resistor.
By using the Color Code Chart provided in lecture 2, you will be able to practice using the code to correctly identify the value of resistors.
Resistor Color Code Quiz
|Section 3: Types of Resistors and Resistor Power Ratings|
Resistors come in many shapes, sizes and power ratings. This lesson will introduce you to the variations of available resistors.
When we say that a resistor has a power rating of 1/8 Watt or 1 Watt, what does that mean? This lesson will explain that for you.

|Section 4: Electronic Measurements|
This lesson will familiarize you with many of the features shown on the front panel of a multimeter.
Multimeter front panel identification continues, with additional information on special or added features present on some multimeters.
This lesson continues with front panel identification of multimeter features.
Part 4 tells you specifically how to measure resistance, voltage and current using a multimeter.
