Questions & Answers

3% accuracy sounds worthless. Do they mean 97% accuracy??

3% accuracy sounds worthless. Do they mean 97% accuracy??
Asked by: William
I think they mean that it is accurate to within 3%. Remember that the reading you get is always relative. If you are testing a piece of wet sheetrock take a reading from a known dry piece also to compare.
