Forouzan: MCQ in Analog Transmission

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2018)
Multiple choice questions in Analog Transmission
This is the MCQs in Analog Transmission from book the Data Communications and Networking 4th Edition by Behrouz A. Forouzan. If you are looking for a reviewer in datacom, a topic in Electronics Systems and Technologies (Communications Engineering) this will definitely help you before taking the Board Exam.

In this particular topic you have learned the two types of conversion: digital-to- analog conversion and analog-to-analog conversion. If you skip the summary visit Analog Transmission which refers to the transmission of analog signals using a band-pass channel.

Begin and Good luck!
