Book Overview

Jump start your journey with electronics! If you've thought about getting into electronics, but don't know where to start, this book gives you the information you need. Starting with the basics of electricity and circuits, you'll be introduced to digital electronics and microcontrollers, capacitors and inductors, and amplification circuits - all while gaining the basic tools and information you need to start working with low-power electronics.
Electronics for Beginners walks the fine line of focusing on projects-based learning, while still keeping electronics front and center. You'll learn the mathematics of circuits in an uncomplicated fashion and see how schematics map on to actual breadboards. Written for the absolute beginner, this book steers clear of being too math heavy, giving readers the key information they need to get started on their electronics journey.
You will:

  • Review the basic patterns of resistor usage--pull up, pull down, voltage divider, and current limiter
  • Understand the requirements for circuits and how they are put together
  • Read and differentiate what various parts of the schematics do
  • Decide what considerations to take when choosing components
  • Use all battery-powered circuits, so projects are safe

   Great book
I am a newb and teaching myself to teach so that I can teach my children. I have read this book and have used it ever since as a reference. Easy to follow, flows well and is beginner friendly.
   Excellent for beginners!
Wonderfully written and very easy to understand! '' Electrical examples for excellent calculations are necessary. Highly recommended!
   No Answer Key is a problem.
The book itself is well written. But for beginners, the most important thing is to be able to check your work with the correct answers, so that you know when you are doing the work correctly. Otherwise, you have no idea whether or not you made a mistake. And if you do it wrong, but think you are doing it right, you will continue to do it wrong and create a bad habit of incorrect thinking. If you are a beginner, I suggest buying another book with an answer key so that you can check your work. If I had read the reviews before buying this book, I would have bought another. That is my fault, not the authors. This book has a lot of good information after you get a little experience. But remember, it is easy to understand for the guy who is writing it. But isn 't just for those of us with no experience. I want the red light to stop me when I am travelling on the wrong road.
   Excellent beginning or review book.
I love this review of basic electronics with the exception of a nitpick. It would be even better if there was an answer key at the end of each chapter for the quizzes.
   A nice, tidy and understandable intro to electronics with practical application for the hobbyist.
Not too basic, but enough to keep interest if you love science when building and fixing technical electronic gadgets. You 'll want tovl keep it around.
   Great Introduction to Electronics
Using this to help students prepare for the electrical aspects of the Arduino certification. Multimeter coverage of good use and safety is excellent. Explains circuits, drawings and components. Solving simple complex '' circuit solutions. Discussion and drawings by breadboard. A plus is that it loops back to the Arduino. I can display this with the Kindle app with the classroom projector.
   No answer key to questions asked in book, so it's hard to know if you really understand it.
I think it is a great book with the knowledge packed in the pages, but the self-feedback is sorely lacking. It has a section at the end of each chapter called Ask What You Have Learned, where they ask you questions - problems. You answer them, but there is not an answer key to be able to check if you understood it and if it is correct. No feedback ergoes no reinforcement.
   awesome book for a newbie and up.
The book does start from very basic principles. As it goes further in it will start to throw useful formulas at you and give you a few challenges to apply the knowledge that uou just acquired. One will need to be friends with math, but thers have just no way around it. The book will teach you to understand schematics and will go in detail on each component present in it. 500 pages of good information spread out. Recommendation strongly recommended. 1 recommendation to the publisher : I'd rather have the book available in spiral binder, that way it is easier to work with since it's slso a work book and no way it should be a shelf book.
