Please recommend good textbook to learn about oscilloscope

  1. Mar 14, 2013 #1
    I'm preparing for Physics GRE.
    I never took experiment course in college except experiment in general physics.
    Seeing previous 4 tests, I found there is oscilloscope problem.
    What is good book for learning about oscilloscope?
    I read XYZ primer but it's not much detailed.

    Are you looking for material on the physics of how CRT oscilloscopes work (accelerated electrons, etc.), or are you looking for material on how to use and operate an oscilloscope?

    To learn about using an oscilloscope, you should do some reading, but you also should actually play with an oscilloscope. I suspect that good material can be found on-line, including simulations that let you operate a virtual oscilloscope.
