CET TEST Quiz, Part VII--Color TV and Ohm's Law (ET/D, July 1981)

Home | Articles | Forum | Glossary | Books

This is the seventh of ET/D CET Quizzes. If you have done well it is about time to consider taking the CET Examination.

by Frank K. Egner, CET

Here's the next CET test preparation quiz on electronic fundamentals. If you are making passing scores on these quizzes, you should be ready to take the CET Associate exam. The questions you are missing may indicate those areas where reviewing would be helpful. The last six questions of this quiz relate to the NTSC standards for color TV transmission and reception. Each future quiz will include some questions on TV or other home entertainment or industrial devices.

CET exams can only be administered by CET Certification Administrators. A fee is required to cover expenses of administration, grading, and issuance of certificates.

However, if both the Associate exam and one Option exam are taken at one time, they count as one exam.

Contact the Certification Administrator of The Electronics Technician's Association or The International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians in your area. The national headquarters addresses for both have been given in previous issues of ET/D.
