you are right, but I agree with nixiefairy that this manual should do better. For instance the external links in chapter 8 about AGC's points to completely different implementations than used in this chapter. At least a reference should be given to a description of the method used in the experiment.
If you want people to vote based on your opinion then only provide the poll on the review only not as a separate post. I based on my opinion one based on Page 16 of the manual that clearly states that the Kit is based on instructor lead training, not so much self based training.
So in saying that, there is sufficient detail as I would expect based on instructor lead projects. As a 4th year engineering student and 30 year veteran as a technician I found it fine for training. Again my opinion and was separate to any other objective view.
For hobbyist it is really defined for those with sufficient background to go it alone.
In summary the kit manual is very much as it is designed for.
Please do have a look through my review : Analog System Lab Kit (STEM Product) - Review
Nowhere have I mentioned that the kit underperformed. But as a university student, I found the manual to be ill-equipped in the practical approach you mentioned. Most of the manual consists of a re-iteration of the formulas mentioned in the lecture links given in the manual. In fact, few of the formulas given in the manual have not been explained clearly. This is why the manual did cause me some difficulty.
It really depends on the purpose of the kit, teaching university students, It should be a support product not a full teaching aid. Lectures provide a substantial amount of information that is more specialised for degree obtainment. Otherwise do you learn or just follow.
If it designed for the hobbyist then the manual actually looks complex unless it could be used for aspiring hobbyist to consider getting a degree.
So my feeling is there is a balance between degree and hobby introduction to theory, too complex and it may push away hobbyist away from the industry.
Personally it satisfies both areas reasonably well. It maybe too simple for people like myself but I would then use it past my current capabilities, ie: for quick hookup of a design.
