I don't know what it is, but I seem to have the hardest time learning about testing equipment. When it comes to learning the material dealing with almost any EE subject I'm fine, but give me a logic analyzer I've never seen before and I can't figure how to use it. For example, I understand the concept of triggers when using scopes or analyzers, but it takes me forever to figure out how to set them. This has become a major frustration for me during labs. I always need someone to show me how to use them, usually when I'm frustrated, which hinders my ability to learn haha. It seems like it's only getting worse because everytime I see a new piece of equipment I barely try to learn how to use it by myself before I give up and ask for help. I look at the manuals but the information never seems to stick very well. Is there something else I could be doing to improve my learning curve? I know this is an odd problem, but it's one that really bothers me; these are the kind of skills I know employers will be looking for, the practical kind. Speaking of practical, are there any books out there that discuss practial uses for the stuff I'll be learning in school so I can see how they're actually used? I have a feeling that'll help me out a lot. Btw, I'm in my second year of my program; I've taken devices up to FETs, two Dig classes, DC/AC and am now taking a Computer Systems class (this one is kind of a tough class for me, tbh). Sorry for the long post, and thank you for any help!
