A Guide to Understanding and Creating Electronic Circuits.

The aim of this book is to teach you simple analogue and digital electronics at a practical level. For the in-depth theory of electronics, please read the Electronics Textbook. By the end of this book, you should be able to combine circuit elements to create more complex circuits, and have an understanding of how it works. To begin, you need just basic knowledge of high-school mathematics and physics, common tools and and piece of enthusiasm.
