    Hi, I am sort of new to the world of electronics and electrical testing and I have what is probably a fairly basic question about Multimeters:

    If I want to measure amps with my MM, I should do so while the component is being used, right? Sorry if this is obvious to most of you, I just wanted to make sure!

    Gregg,

    Yes, measuring amperage with a multimeter measures the amount of current flowing through the circuit, so you typically want to do that while the component is in use. Hope this helped.

    Best,
    Phil
