I find your approach in how you teach, and make sense of complicated electrical/ electronic theory, and how to diagnose problems with a "keep it simple" practical approach- amazing! As I continue to read and learn from you it is becoming apparently clear- that although I've graduated college, got my license, have had some electrical training throughout my career- that all those experiences still left inadequacies in my diagnosis skills. - but so far I find that your explanation of things really is patient, and that you break the information down to the "bare bones" making it easier to understand. It's hard to explain, there are many books in the world trying to explain electrical information- diagnosis. But your approach just works better.

Hi vince, today is my birthday and the best gift that I have received is SHORTCUTS. I can't let my wife know I say that. I am so happy for this book. Thank you so much again.

Hey Vince, I went to one of your seminars in the 90s and also thought it was great! It took away a lot of the mysteries of electrical troubleshooting. I still have many of the articles that you wrote for Import Service (Magazine).
I salute you, Ed Smith in NY

Mr. Veejer I thought you might enjoy hearing how your training has helped me and American men and women in uniform.
Currently, I am about to get a technical manual revised with a safety issue dealing with Automatic traction control (ATC). I have read the 60 lesson course twice and also have studied your hands on trainer (H-111A) and the Electrical SHORTCUTS. We have corresponded before and this problem was my most challenging diagnostic problem ever but thanks to your training I have solved this complex problem . . . I am in Afghanistan . . . .
Your training has helped me to become the best electrical trouble shooter in Afghanistan and this is only one example out of dozens that I have solved to keep our war fighting mission going. The in-depth principle training with the laws of electricity has benefited me most not just your techniques but the understanding I have of electric circuits.

Hi Vince, I have been studying your electrics books and putting into practice at the workshop what I’ve learned from these I must admit wish I had this info years ago.
The Story: one of my colleagues checked a BMW 1 series for a no crank non start . . . he reported it required a starter motor because it sounded it was faulty . . . . a new starter was fitted and guess what, CLICK no crank and there was smoke coming from the starter area . . . I went over to the vehicle (to help) he said the new starter is faulty it’s burning up . . . I asked him to check the earth on the vehicle and he pointed to a jump lead he was using . . . I said you need to check from the battery at the battery to the engine block he said I can’t do that the battery is in the boot . . . I said it doesn’t matter where the battery is you must check from there, needless to say it was not checked and he removed the new starter and ordered another one . . . today another new starter (the second starter) was fitted and you know what the outcome was, yes click and smoke . . .
I did the tests from FIRST THINGS FIRST-Pro and found the engine block (voltage drop) was reading 10.5 volts . . . the earth cable was hanging together with dry corrosion when touched it came apart . . . and to top it all I found that the foreman also previously fitted a new battery too.
Thanks for your books I have learned from them in these situations. It gets frustrating when people just throw parts on, thanks to your books. I thoroughly carry out FIRST THINGS FIRST-Pro checks and it does help massively once you understand all the tests,
