Here's two that I've found useful:
http://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/
http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/


I think both are excellent resources (maybe the best free resources on the web) if one is willing to systematically learn electronics, and to invest some time into it. Both do not demand any prior knowledge of electronics and provide very good and understandable explanations.

There is one chapter in allaboutcircuits that I highly recommend to everybody, even if one is only occasionally playing with electronic circuits, and this is the chapter on Electrical Safety:

http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_3/index.html

Carefully studying it might actually safe your life one day.

Great book. If somebody wants to make a financial contribution to the author after reading it, here is the homepage of the book with the details:

Electronics math in English, using units in words instead of letters.
Example: Inductors: Voltage = Current Change Per Second * Henries

A recommended read for anyone who finds math confusing.

Here's a PDF version of the GE Transistor Manual mentioned in The Amp Hour episode #90:

GE - Transistor Manual 1964

It's a good read, actually.

Here's a link for India's NPTEL (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning) website.

http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/

To quote the website...

One of the great books on analog design, now out of print, is available for download from the website of Analog Devices (www.analog.com). It can be downloaded chapter by chapter or complete (75MB):

http://www.analog.com/library/analogdialogue/archives/philbrick/computing_amplifiers.html

All players should have one! Other useful downloads at:

I am very new to this forum. In fact this is the first posting.  I am also not the best at proper etiquette or spelling.  Never the less, I hope i did not miss that this was allready posted in order to prevent redundancy, but I am a big fan of the encyclopedia of electronic circuits series.  There are no explanations on how the circuits really work, but there are thousands of circuits in which you can clone, modify and own.  Each book is about 1000 pages of nothing but circuits.  when you get the chance, you can look into it sometime.

Hi Guys, 

This is my first time posting.

After two courses in basic electronics, I'm reading two books:  1) "All New Electronics Self-Teaching Guide" by Harry Kybett and Earl Boyson.  2) "How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic" by Michael Jay Geier. 

They're quite interesting and easy to read.  Has anyone read these and/or have any opinions about them? 

p.s.: I'm just starting out with minimal gear.  I have 4 DMMs of different types, a 100MHz dual trace Tek465B analog scope, a 3 Amp linear PSU and a 200 project Radio Shack Electronics Learning Lab.  I just got an Elenco transistor/diode tester kit to build. My 12 year old son wants to learn to solder.

Thanks in advance for any feed-back.

Please visit this site:

http://www.cirvirlab.com/

It is educational, for electronics study and simulation of most common electronic circuits and it's free.

Many interesting circuits, together with the corresponding SPICE files, good explanations, and suggestions how to "play" with the simulated circuits to understand their behaviour.

Such a lot of information here!

Here's another I came across recently:
http://jacquesricher.com/NEETS/
NEETS - US Navy Electricity and Electronics Training Series

24 chapters; each chapter is a single pdf.
