Electronics book

  1. Sep 18, 2009 #1
    I was originally going to take some electrical engineering courses along with my aerospace but have decided to just pursue it as a self study instead. I really just want to be able to do things at the hobby level. Could you recommend a good book or several books that would help get me started? Thanks, I appreciate it.

    The Art of Electronics, by Horowitz and Hill. It's a good book for self study, and takes you from very basic concepts up through microcontrollers and analog circuits.

    I'll second Horowitz and Hill, unless you've never done anything with circuits before. It's (arguably) not a complete beginners book, but if you do know the basics it's, as berkeman said, a very good book.
