Hi all. I've come to realize there's a giant gap in my electrical engineering knowledge. I've studied plenty of math, physics, circuit analysis, and digital electronics but yet can't figure out how to troubleshoot consumer electronic devices or construct simple gadgets. When I open up a DVD player and look at all the electronic components I think, "wtf?! where can I utilize my knowledge of boolean algebra and the superposition theorem to fix this piece of sh_t?" I've browsed through amazon's list of electronics books and the reviews don't really help. I'm leaning towards Tab Electronics Guide to Understanding Electricity and Electronics. Does anybody have any recommendations?
