Hey all....I've recently been working with some F.E. candidates and I notice they are very weak on the basics of electrical engineering. So I had to force these things down their throat. If you are a college student specifically....you need to know these backwards and forwards!!!! You should be able to concisely describe the following in a couple sentences!!! If not....ask questions now....the concepts are very simple and I consider them the foundation of EE: V=IR P=IV KVL KCL Voltage Divider Current Divder Equivalent series resistors Equivalent parallel resistors Current thru resistors (current does not go across resistors!) Voltage across resistors (Voltage does not go thru resistors!) To all aspiring students....can you clearly and concisely describe each of these in a couple sentences? In other words...if you were standing in front of 1,000 people and you had to explain all these....could you do it? If not....take a step back and learn them!!! And yes...you wouldn't believe how many active electrical engineers that don't get these basics!!! Please....ask questions....or describe them on this forum. And yes, there certainly are more things...but you can't move on until you have these!
