    Short summary describing this thing.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


     Dean's Electronics is a manual for amateur electricians and skillbook found in the Fallout franchise. By reading the book in-game, the player's repair skill is increased. It appears in every game of the franchise.
    In Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics, reading the book causes your repair skill to be increased by a variable percentage. That percentage gets smaller the higher your  repair skill is until it maxes around 90%.
    in Fallout 3, the book is a straight one point increase to the repair skill. Two points are gained after the Comprehension perk is selected.
