Electronics primers, course material and books
« on: January 02, 2011, 07:01:07 AM »
Hi,

I'd like to start a list of freely (and legaly) available electronics primer and course material, books and other stuff, similar to the datasheet database.
There were some great links in various topics but they get easily lost.


freetechbooks.com has dozens of books on various topics.
Mostly computer sciences, programming and mathematics but also electric circuits and signal processing.
New material are added, a RSS feed is availible.


NEETS (Navy electricity and electronics training series) link
The Complete NEETS (Navy electricity and electronics training series) is available here http://www.phy.davidson.edu/instrumentation/NEETS.htm in PDF which you can download for FREE.Answers to asignments are NOT included if you are not 100% certain your answer is correct reread the lesson ALL answers are in the text.If you get stuck post on the forum.The module you need (for multivibrators ) is #9, but all are worth a read.

While it is from one specific company (hopefully not seen as spam, I promise I don't work for them) the tutorials on Sparkfun's website are pretty good. (http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials) The bite-sized tutorials in particular are nice for good information packed into small space for a quick read in your spare time. Not as much detail as you would get in, say, Horowitz and Hill, or even some of the other resources listed here, but a good place to start.

I've found this link quite helpful.  It is http://www.electronicstheory.com/html/cindex.htm.  It is an Electronics 101 Course that contains 75 Chapters on just about every undergrad subject for EE.  It's legal and free.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the MIT course materials on EE and CS:
http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/

I just watched (yes, video) the first lecture from 6.002 (Circuits and Electronics) and I'm hooked! Especially at the end when Prof. Agarwal made a pickle glow :).  I can't believe I can get MIT education for free.

Then you have the Stanford SEE (more CS oriented)
http://see.stanford.edu/see/courses.aspx

Other schools have similar programs, but on the few I checked, they didn't have any electronics related material.

A mate of mine runs the Radio and Electronics School, www.res.net.au. It's mainly set up for students to gain their Amateur Radio licence, but you learn quite a bit about electronics as well, oh and it's free! It's run by volunteers. You can also join a Yahoo group for students to ask questions etc. Tell Ron Raff sent you!

Regards,
Raff.

Very well written stuff here, I love the way Colin puts it together, I have all of the old Talking Electronics magazines at home here, and even the 2 computer projects as well, and yes they still work!

Hi, and thank you very much. I was searching for exactly this, books for beginners with the basics. I now have a lot of reference books. I was on my local book store but everything was too advanced and confusing for me. Keep the great work up ;D

My first thought when I saw this thread was about the MIT OpenCourseWare.  Great stuff.  And in some of the cases, even the textbooks are available in electronic format (view only obviously).  I see the above mentioned 6.002 is one of them.
