    Find the scale that corresponds to the range selected and use it. The deflection from 0 is proportional to the value measured.

    Some of the higher priced analog meters possess a narrow mirrored strip on the face of the meter just below the scale. This mirror is for use in allowing you to change your viewing angle to correct for parallax error.

    If your meter has this feature then by all means take advantage of it so that your reading of the meter will be as accurate as possible.
