Cross Reference To FOA Books, Guide and Fiber U

The FOA has created what is probably the world's largest knowledge base on fiber optics. We have almost 1,000 pages of information online, 11 textbooks (including 2 printed and 2 online translations), and over two dozen free online courses at Fiber U based on these reference materials.). All the reference materials are supporting FOA certifications. There is so much material available, it's sometimes hard to find how they fit together.

Below are the links to be used to cross reference FOA textbooks with the FOA Online Reference Guide and Fiber U.
The Fiber U courses also include links to all the Guide pages and many of the FOA videos. The Fiber U courses also include the chapter questions from the  textbook as self-test quizzes which may be printed for the instructor.

Below are the links to be used to cross reference FOA textbooks with the FOA Online Guide and Fiber U (in parentheses).
