Schematic reading advice/tips
« on: Jun 18, 2012, 09:44 »
Not that it should be too much of a problem for interviews coming up, but does anybody know of a good resource for learning how to use schematics in the civilian world? I could use a good refresher just in general, and definitely if I get into ops.

It seems like each platform I served on had schematics that had a weird way of being read a certain way compared to the other platforms' prints. and they symbols used seemed to change from platform to platform as well.

BTW, I was an EM, and yeah, I admit that I have trouble with them. Any help is appreciated.
