Getting started with Electrical Engineering

    Getting started with Electrical Engineering!!!

    Hello, I'm a high school student 15. I want to start building or working more with electronical systems. I build robots some. But i want to get into it further the core of that. With constructing chips (from pre printed boards), networks, high sensitivity sensor etc... I can spent any amount of time necessary. I was just curious if anyone had any book suggestions classes at a university (Im currently enrolled at the U in my town). Currently I'm in the process of constructing a CO2 slow wave laser, although this is many just following instructions, I would enjoy to understand the base components and how they work and why they work. If anyone had any suggestions on how to get there it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    There is a book that I keep on my shelf that is a good introductory book for understanding electronics, current, circuits ect... its called "Teach yourself Electricity and Electronics by Stan Gibilisco. Its pretty comprehensive, and makes this easy to understand.
