NJATC Theory Trainer

I'm an electrical apprentice and i need help on how to find voltage, current, and resistance on an NJATC theory trainer?  

It's like a breadboard but you use jumpers to hook up the resistors either in parallel, series, or parallel/series.  I need some help cause my teacher is to smart for his own good and can't break it down to layman terms.  If you  have any questions ill try to explain what it is.

Is this the trainer you are talking about. 

Not sure I fully understand your question.  You can use a multimeter to directly measure the current, voltage or resistance.  If you need help on using the meter, lets us know.   If it's something else let us know as well.
