Radio Receiver Servicing (1959)
Radio Receiver Servicing by John T. Frye (1959, 219 pages). This is a fantastic, down-to-earth book covering how to repair everything from bad reception, no reception, and intermittent problems. What really makes this book stand out is that at the end of each chapter there are a series of questions to help reinforce what was taught. At the end of the book are the answers to all the questions.
From the Introduction:
This is not another volume of radio theory; neither is it an oversimplified introduction to radio repairing. Instead, it is a down-to-earth book on how to repair radios and is written directly for the man who is ready to make his living, or at least part of it, doing radio service.
