Great Paul! Just what I was looking for!

A flux capacitor can be interpreted as a coil the stores energy by rapidly turning on and off, the applied electrical energy, before the magnetic field collapses. Magnet field lines are flux lines. Hence a coil that stores a magnetic field is a flux capacitor. Well for fun anyway.

Forrest Mims also wrote the two project books that came with the Radio Shack 300 Projects kit. (I believe it was the last one RS did). The format is the same as his other electronics books, and as an added bonus, you had all the parts and components you needed to assemble the circuits. I bought one new a few years back, and stumbled on a used one for $5.00 (US) in a Goodwill thrift store last year. I bought it mainly for the breadboard so I could use it for other projects (assuming that the parts were long gone), but when I got it home I realized that it had never been used. The parts were still in the package, and both books were there, so I checked it out, put fresh batteries in it, and passed it on to one of the kids at our church who was helping me with the sound system. Oh, I still use the first one on a regular basis.

I'd also recommend "Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics" by Stan Gibilisco. He covers a lot of stuff and is also a HAM (used to work at ARRL). And his book isn't too expensive and if you buy older editions you can pick up one for 2-3 dollars!

Hello a question and a problem. How can I check a 1000uf capacitor in circuit with a 200uf max reading capacitance meter not after esr just a quick check type of thing ? I have a small breadboard and a big headache lol regards

I had to go back a step or two and found out the the best book for electronics was a maths book ! If your math is not up to scratch you will struggle with even basic electronics theory as i did and still do to some extent .
I often wonder where we will be in fifty years as micros seem to be taking over everything and the old ways are diminishing fast so all that training and theory in electronics may well be lost . Will we eventually become a plug and play / replace society ?

ARRL handbook looks fantastic but it's funny money over here. May get one if the lottery comes up!

Forrest Mims is an electronics god. I learned tons from his Radio Shack books and other books he authored. I still have them. Got most of them in the 70s and 80s. The internet makes learning electronics tons easier. It's much easier to learn electronics today than 40 years ago. Much easier to get datasheets and parts these days. All that you would need is at your fingertips today. Instant datasheet access and parts can be delivered overnight these days. Back then it took weeks to get either of these if at all.

I follow Electronic Devices and Circuits by J.B. Gupta for Theory and The Art of Electronics by Paul Horowitz and Winfield Hill for practical circuit.

I will have to see if I can find either of those books in the big library in Boise next time I'm up that way. Maybe I can find something used.
Great video Paul, thanks for doing what you do.

Thanks Paul. I started a few years ago with "Make: Electronics", by Charles Platt. Then my Maxitronix 500 in 1 Electronics Lab. I would recommend to youngsters or newbiesĀ to GET a Scope!! Even if it's a cheap little 20MHz on eBay. I have no doubt that I would have learned easier and quicker if I had a scope at the beginning when learning the basics.

If you search hard, you can download the book Getting Started in Electronics by Forrest M. Mims and many more of his mini series books.

If you are planning on buying a ARRL handbook, you probably shouldn't plan on buying another for 5 years or so. Also, the ~1990 era books have much more detail

A lot of people seem to forget that electronics haven't changed that much over the years. I'm seeking out RF design books from 1990 to 2018. The older books seem to be much more detailed.

Thumbs up. However ARRL books, some more than others have been known to have errors and such. I just got my BITX 40 on digital mode working and having QSO's and picked up my General Manual for review, and under sending and receiving digital modes it said digital modes are transmitted on Lower Side Band except JT65 and JT9. Google results say most digital is Upper Side Band, and my club friends say it's USB, and if I hadn't known their books may have mistakes I would have believed this and fought against everyone who is actually right. Fortunately for me I originally learned it was USB and not LSB, and was only confused when I saw this in review. That Handbook should be in everyone's personal library, and I imagine most mistakes have been reported along the years until it's pretty reliable now.

New subscriber here. Really interesting, thanks for the info! The presentation of the first one, with hand drawn fonts is really cool. What about similar top-notch Arduino, automation, and robotics guides, manuals and books would you recommend for the uninitiated? Pure electronics is not really my thing ironically, but in the future I plan to delve into the world of so called urban-farming and hydroponics and I figure such topics would help me grow, and then, after settling in that life, I would like to tinker too with RC/drone vehicles and contraptions.
