    I have a BJT problem that under VCC the resistance is labeled RE and at the (normal) emitter side of the BJT is a resistance labeled RC, does this mean that the emitter and collector are switched ? I thought VCC represented voltage on the collector side. Is this assumption wrong, and VCC is just a voltage source and isn't labeled according to the BJT ?

    thanks in Advance.

    nm thanks anyways, i figured it out and if anyone was wondering you go off the placement of the arrow.

    Yes, the arrow is all important, it defines the emitter. Without seeing your schematic it is impossible to tell, but it does sound like a typo.

    Did it look something like this?



    Just figured out your shorthand for never mind. :) BTW, welcome aboard.
