CET quiz, part IX -- Radio & TV (ET/D, Nov. 1981)

Home | Articles | Forum | Glossary | Books

This entire quiz is on radio and television fundamentals. It should be a good review to help you get ready for the CET tests. Why not take the test soon and surprise yourself with how much electronics knowledge you really have and didn't realize? See if you can get more than 75% on this quiz.
