I haven't been to any tournaments, but I would expect problems involving applications of Kirchhoff's laws to determine resistances/capacitances. In addition, designing a circuit on a breadboard to meet certain specifications, or troubleshooting a circuit could all be possibilities.

At the one competition I have been to, we were asked to find resistance using band codes. I would expect things like how to use multi-meters in the future.
