Re: Ohm meters a bit off topic
John is right on with his answer. First get something that will give you the very basic understanding of electrical circuits. Nothing fancy, just basic electrical 101. You have to have the minimum understanding of volts, current, and resistance, and how they interact.
Once you get that, you will be in the top 20% of people out there! Few have even the most basic understanding.
Without just a little understanding of how basic electrical circuits work, the meter won't be that much of a help. It may cause more confusion than understanding.
For anyone who has the basic knowledge, a decent Volt/Ohm meter is pretty much the first, and most necessary tool needed.
