Freely Redistributable Technical Resources
(AKA Free Books On-Line)

In an effort to better focus the material, make the best use of lab resources, and reduce textbook costs to students, a series of laboratory manuals and texts have been developed at MVCC for use in our Electrical Engineering Technology courses. These replace the formerly used materials which, in some cases, were over $200 each, in paperback. The materials listed below are available to anyone, free of cost. The following titles are copyright by the author, Professor Jim Fiore, and use a Creative Commons license. The author thanks the MVCC community for their support of these projects.

Software

Sample Wrench is an extensive digital audio analysis and editing tool that runs under Windows. Formerly a commercial product for many years, I recently placed this as non-commercial redistributable freeware. It is useful for coursework in electronics, audio, acoustics, music production and the like. More information about it can be found here (these links will take you to my other site, dissidents.com). This software is used in PH106 Science of Sound.
