    Great introduction to electronics for beginners

    I used this book as a teaching aid for middle school aged kids in a Science Olympiad electronics event. It was perfect for that, giving a good overview of the basics of both DC and AC electronics and circuit diagrams. I'm a Ph.D. engineer, so I've already covered all this in more depth, and at a more difficult level, but even so I found the instructional material helpful, and wished I'd had something this straightforward and easy to understand when I was an undergrad and taking my first electrical engineering course. It would have helped provide an introduction to electrical/electronic engineering, and helped balance the much less clear presentation provided by my somewhat obtuse professor!
    I'd recommend this for anyone who wants a clear, easy to understand, and technically accurate introduction to electrical circuits and electronics. If you start here, you'll get a good basic understanding and be able to move on to more challenging material with ease.

    Excellent book

    if you want a clear understanding of electronics that you can apply to real life situations and basic circuit designing or are planning to go into more advanced circuit design, then this is the book for you. even if you think you already have a firm grounding in electronics, you might learn a thing or two from this book, or just make things a bit simpler.

    Terrific

    Short, but excellent FUNCTIONAL descriptions of electronic components for folks who need to visualize what the electrons are actually doing. I would have liked more advanced topics in place of hands-on project examples.

    Chptr. 2-Escape~By Candace/Amanda

    I sat curled up in a corner, hugging my knees and staring off into space, contemplating my situation. I was going to become a Victim, and then a Wanderer. This would be my last day to experience any sight what so ever, before they took my eyes, my beautiful deep brown eyes i had always took pride in, my eyes which i had taken forgranted...until now. I wanted to see all there was to see before they took my sight, but i was cooped up in a bare white cell with nothing but a fork and a bare wall to look at. I was considering this when i heard the distinctive clomping of the gaurds boots. The lock on my cell started to jiggle as the gaurd unlocked the door. Then the lock submit and the door swung open. In the doorway, an oversized lobster-like creature stood on two leg-ish things. It clicked its horrible blood red claws threteningly and a stood and walked slowly towards the monster. It nodded and lead me through the door and down a narrow corridor until we reached an enormous set of double doors with two more lobster creatures guarding them. One of the guards clicked their claws and the guard behind me clicked back. The first guard nodded and the doors swung open with an echoing bang. I shuddered and stepped out into an large room with heavily padded walls. In an upper corner of the room a camera hung by a single cable, like the spiders i sometimes found in my cell. In the center of the room was a tiny black box resting on a table. I shivered realizing that my eyeballs would soon rest in that awful black container. I glanced back up at the camera and remembered the day my father became a Victim, it was mandatory that the Victims family watched the Undoing; an awful process in which the creatures, Crustacheals, gouge out the Victims eyes and then release them into the Forbidden Lands. I felt goosebumps creeping up my skin as I looked around this dreaded room. Suddenly i heard a sequence of clicks from the Crustacheal guards. I turned around just to see the double doors slam shut and seal my fate. **Thanks again! Tell me what you think! The next chapter will be posted in the next result!!!!**-Candace/Amanda
