I like "The Art of Electronics" by Horowitz. The Book has a "hands on" feeling to it and the author doesn't shy away from telling you about very basic stuff like switches and resistors that others are to snotty to mention, before getting into details of analog and digital electronics. It is also fun to read (there is a page with quotes from it somewhere online). The digital electronics part is hopelessly outdated, the cover is ugly and if you are studying ee it is probably not technical enough. So YMMV.
