Two More Electronics Books

My startegy for learning stuff by lonesome is triangulation.  When you are book learnin, often times there will be gaps in one author’s explanation.  By getting two or three books that cover the same material, you can can use your secondary books to backup your ‘main’ book.

Make: Electronics is still my main book.  But now I got the classic Getting Started in Electronics too.  Also picked up Electronics for Dummies.  I’ve already run into a few things I was spotty on.  For instance, with a unijunction transistor, I get that you program it’s voltage tipping point via a resistor.  But what I don’t get is how you know what that point is.  Hoping that when I run into these kinds of situations, the other books will help me out.

    Lobe – you’re starting to sound like you actually know what you’re talking about. I’m jealous! Keep up the extracurricular learning, and maybe if I buy some books we’ll be able to work on another project together!

    As another learning electronics, let me recommend ‘Practical Electronics for Inventors’ by Paul Scherz. From one hand, it’s very detailed, and it’s not something many people can absorb in one sitting. On another, it covers a broad range of topics and is pretty accessible. It’s a great book for when you need/want to know more.

    I noticed your site’s ranking in google’s search results is very low.
    You are loosing a lot of traffic. You need high PageRank backlinks
    to rank in top10. I know – buying them is too expensive.

    It’s better to own them. I know how to do that, just google it:
