I have been struggling for years to learn Electronics and was only ever just marginally successful. I understood some of the most basic principles, but never things like how & why a transistor worked, or what a resistors true function in a circuit is. Once I read this boo - I GOT IT! For the first time ever I felt like I TRULY understood it, that I could look at a schematic and understand what was going on & why those components were there & what they did. I can't recommend this book highly enough for anyone who desires to learn and understand more about electronics. It has me looking for the next book to further and deepen the understanding I have gained.

If you've wanted to dabble in Electronics, this book is for you. Written so that anyone can understand electronics, and maybe more importantly, so that you are not board, this book will teach you step by step what you need to have, know, and do, to get started right away. From tools to components to micro-controllers, what to do including the release of "magic smoke" on purpose so that you can learn what happens in a totally hands on, REAL world way. Step one, taste electricity...Yeah that's right...We've all done it (Ok maybe not everyone) You'll take a....Wait a minute, you'll have to read the book!! Wanna spend quality time with your son or daughter while learning some really cool stuff? Stuff they (and you) can use throughout your life, like using a DVM. "A DV Who?" you say... Seriously, if you have an interest in learning electronics, GET THIS BOOK!!

I would very much recommend this book for anyone wishing to start learning electronics, but I would also recommend this book as a reference for anyone in electronics. Platt provides good descriptions and illustrations for each of the concepts covered in the book. Its a must have book for electronics enthusiast.

it's good for an instructional guide but that's about it. don't expect to get too in-depth on all electronic parts like diodes and ics although they do a good job on explaining capacitors, resistors, and basic circuit analysis. if you're an electrical engineering major you're better off getting something more in-depth like "electronics for dummies."
