What Books do you recommend on Electrical Engineering?

  1. May 27, 2013 #1
    So, I'm a computer science major because I love programming and maths, but I really want to also learn the hardware part of computers as well.

    My university doesn't have an electrical engineering programme or offer any serious courses dealing with electrical engineering. I really want to learn the stuff dealing with electronics but I don't know if I really want to push another possible 2 years in school for a second major or if I should self study. My reasons for learning this stuff is mainly personal rather than just for a job, there are some projects I've had drawn up since HS (project drones, security bots) but I lack the knowledge to actually know where to start with the electronics aspect of the projects. I am looking for books that can help me get started in the world of Electrical Engineering. I've already taken up to Calculus III and Physics I (made deans list when I took all courses) at community college even though they weren't required for my major. The community college offered Electrical Engineering courses but I left there to finish my CS degree before I took any EE classes.

    I'm looking for anything from College textbooks to professional guides. I'm not one for 'How to' or 'Dummies' books, but if you think that they're good I will take a look at them.

    Just look at the textbooks universities use. Also look at their curriculum.
