ElectronicsBook - 1986
It's never been easier to teach yourself basic electronics. Electronics 2nd Edition A Self-Teaching Guide The first edition of Electronics sold over 50,000 copies--and made learning principles and practices easier for thousands of vocational students, job trainees and home hobbyists. This updated edition has been fully revised to keep pace with rapidly changing technology. Electronics teaches you the basics of electricity and electronic components--transistors, capacitors, diodes, resistors, and circuits--in a self-paced, self-instructional format. And you don't need any previous electronics experience to use and understand this learn-by-doing guide. Working at your own pace, you'll master the simplest concepts and move on to more advanced analog circuits. You'll learn the basics of converting AC to DC...how to effectively use a transformer...how to design a simple working amplifier circuit...and how the transistor operates as a switch. Plus, you'll get an easy-to-follow introduction to voltage dividers, Ohm's law, current flow, semi-conductor diodes, pp and rms voltage levels, tuned circuits, simple BJT and JFET switching circuit design and many other important subjects. Each chapter starts you off with an overview of learning objectives and introduces new concepts gradually, with lots of examples, reviews, and self-quizzes. End-of-chapter exercises let you put what you've learned to work right away. And there are dozens of experiments with step-by-step instructions, so learning is easy and fun. Electronics, 2nd Edition, together with its companion volume Digital Electronics, provides a complete review and reference guide for students, technicians, and do-it-yourselfers. More than 150 Wiley Self-Teaching Guides teach practical skills from accounting to astronomy, management to microcomputers. Look for them all at your local bookstore.
