Possible typo

My primary language is not English but I think I found a typo in the book.

In the first volume of the book, chapter 1.4 "Voltage and current."

The last sentence of the "Review" says:

The +/- orientation a voltage drop...

but I guess it should say:

The +/- orientation of a voltage drop...

Another (possible) typo found.

Volume I - DC, chapter 2.8 - Polarity of voltage drops:

in the review it is written:
is determined by the direction of electron flow though it
where it should be:
is determined by the direction of electron flow through it

Another typo found today, I hope you're still reading...

Volume I - DC, chapter 3.7 - Common sources of hazard:

in the second sentence of the review it is written:
while its unplugged from the receptacle
where it should be:
while it's unplugged from the receptacle
By the way, my previous post has been modified, it was not chapter 8, but chapter 2.8, I'm really, really sorry, I'll bang my head on the keyboard for misleading you...

Well, another very small (and thus you're forgiven for it) typo.

Volume I - DC, chapter 3.9 - Safe meter usage:
The first sentence of the review ends with a comma, but I guess it should end with a point. That's all folks!

BTW, if an admin is reading this, I would be very happy to have my real name on this list if it's possible, just send me a private message, and I'll send you my real name instead of the more anonymous "Shmurk" which I'm not very proud of...

This time, it may not be a typo but it sure looks strange to me:

Volume I - DC, chapter 5.4 - Conductance:
The first sentence of the review may have two words in the wrong order:
the measure of how easy is it for electrons to flow
may be instead:
the measure of how easy it is for electrons to flow
I hope it's not a mistake on my part...

The word: it's is always wrong. Its never contains an apostrophe. This one stays as is


All the other changes have been entered in the master copy ia ibiblio.
