“The journey of 1,000 miles begins with just one step.”
The task of mastering electronics is a daunting one. There is much to learn, and many directions of study.
You may already have an interest in a specialized area of electronics such as audio, computer hardware or ham radio. However, before you delve into such detailed areas, you must begin with the basics.
Ready Set Go! makes an excellent first step.
Material covered includes:
- Schematic symbols
- Resistor colour codes & capacitor colour codes
- Standard resistor and capacitor values
- Standard notation and prefixesButton to view RSG table of contents
- Ohm’s Law
- Lenz’s Law and the “Right Hand Rule”
- Kirchhoff’s current law
- What happens when you place resistors, capacitors and inductors in series or parallel
- Impedance and transformers
Your knowledge will be enhanced by experience, but your understanding will be incomplete without some information about the underlying principles. Ready Set Go! explains the needed principles clearly and concisely.
The language of electronics is mathematics, but Ready Set Go! sets forth the basic principles using nothing beyond add, subtract, multiply and divide. Each new principle and relationship is supported by a simple, practical example – worked out with all steps clearly shown.
Electronics is made up of simple, little things – but there are a lot of them! The “little things” at the heart of all electronics can be found in Ready Set Go!
