Kennedy: MCQs in Noise

(Last Updated On: December 8, 2017)
MCQs in Noise

This is the Multiple Choice Questions in Chapter 2: Noise from the book Electronic Communication Systems by George Kennedy. If you are looking for a reviewer in Communications Engineering this will definitely help. I can assure you that this will be a great help in reviewing the book in preparation for your Board Exam. Make sure to familiarize each and every questions to increase the chance of passing the ECE Board Exam.
