1. Why is safety of the utmost importance when working with electricity or electronics?

2. What level of electrical current is safe for the human body? What level of electrical current can kill a human? What are the factors that affect the level of harm (i.e., slight pain to death) that electrical current can cause the human body?

3. Why is it important to express very large and very small numbers in proper scientific, engineering and Systems International (SI) notation? What is the process for doing so?

4. What is the resistor color code, and how is it used to identify and select resistors?

5. What is the labeling nomenclature for capacitors, and how is it used to identify and select capacitors?

6. What is the process for properly soldering and de-soldering electronic components from a printed circuit board?

7. What are the characteristics of a good solder connection? What are the most common soldering mistakes and how are they identified?
