So I was thinking of purchasing an electronics toolkit, but I need recommendations.
I'm looking to prepare for a second year physics lab (although my main reason in wanting to purchase a electronics toolkit is interest).
So my own research lead me to:

Does anyone else have better recommendations?

I'm mainly looking at developing stronger skills dealing with circuit elements, multimeters, capacitors, diodes etc.

Thanks in advance.
(Also note I'd rather not exceed a budget of $200)

If, in fact, you plan to do the experiments 1-11 it is designed for, then it is a good selection.
There is another kit for the later experiments.

But you still need basic tools, like this:

I know its been a while, but with school done I'm finally ready to go ahead and purchase my first toolkit.
Upon further investigating I found:

Would this maybe be better than the above mentioned package?
This kit is cheaper, and has the programming feature with interests me.

Basic tools is one thing. A uP experimenter's pack is another. There are two forum stickies that cover both subjects.
