Hi guys, I’m interested in learning about electronics and circuitry. I was a CS major but now I’m majoring in CIS. Ever since i was 7, i always open every electronic gadget my parents bought, which i proceeded to look through and "mess around". Most of the time, I didn't ruin the product, but sometimes I messed things up and piss off my parents :-(. I don't want to pursue an EE degree, but recently I’ve chosen this as a hobby that I’ll like to enter. I just finish my sophomore year in college and now its summer. I don't have anythign else to do with my free time. I work part-time now and i have a lot of extra cash that I’m ready to spend on devices, books, and tools that i would need to begin my adventure into this field. Before i register for an introductory electronics class at my university, i would greatly appreciate any tips and general info that you guys believe a newbie might need to know. Suggestions on introductory books to intermediate level books are greatly appreciated too. My whole goal in this is to some day make my own 2 way radio controlled robot.
