Hello PF'ers,
Does anyone have insight on the best way to learn Signal Processing? I am new to the subject and feel totally lost in my course. Our professor has a teaching style that doesn't work for me. He isn't teaching from a textbook and the notes don't fully explain things. Successful completion of assignments has given me a greater mastery of Matlab, but little insight into theory. Also, on his first test he asked questions I felt were outside the perspective offered in class- I need to learn from somewhere why these questions matter. I should probably state that I learn much better from a textbook than a lecture- if anyone can recommend a good text source that would be great. I have more of a bio background than an EE background if that helps. Thanks in advance.

Best book on introductory signal processing ever written. And it's free.

When you want more detail on stuff you can go into the more mathematical treatments as needed.
