Before this class, I have mildly delved into electronics and how they operate. I have experience in automotive electrical troubleshooting, and a decent understanding of circuits. I have built computers, and this past fall I assembled a water immersion cooker for a CRT 101 project. That project taught me a lot about the components of circuits and how to troubleshoot and analyze wiring diagrams. I look forward to improving my dodgy soldering skills, and how to learn to transfer a wiring diagram to its physical counterpart.
