I found a bunch of lectures from EE courses.  I like them.
Electronics For Analog Signal Processing - I http://www.youtube.com/course?list=EC4E1A7D28A90C9B41

Just go to http://www.youtube.com/user/nptelhrd/ and search for "Electrical". It seems they have their entire EE course on there. ( And some other stuff as well)

I now have 100+hrs of courses to watch. 
Before this, there was a typo.

I couldn't agree more, the MIT lectures are awesome!

And if you like old-style books on electronics, check out https://www.abebooks.com Type in "op amps" or whatever, and you'll get hundreds of books listed for around $3 or less. I enjoy the videos, but find books best for learning theory and formula. I'm building a small library of electronic texts for the price of coffee money (but I still like my coffee.)

Cheers!  -Vera

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.
Cheers!  -Vera

Great topic. :) I'm getting back into hobbyist electronics after years of software-only life, and I need something to refresh the stuff I learned at the university, and to augment it with practical knowledge in areas we never covered (such as audio)...

My question would be, what is a good source of practical knowledge? I spent long painful nights over Maxwell equations, Laplace transformations and transfer functions, but I am thoroughly lacking in practical stuff that got built up over years and years of engineering history - like sizing filter capacitors, when to use them, when to go with a Zener diode and when with an ohmic voltage divider, practical ways of helping an op-amp give its best, etc.

While at begging of your work, it might be helpful to have possibility to simulate online standard electronic and electric circuits:

Just a quick thanks to all who posted links to resources, that's much more than an average beginner will be able to go through. Great work, EEVBlog ftw!  :)

I've found something quite awesome. It's a for-money book, and rather on the pricey side (still, no Art of Electronics, haha), but I really like the way it looks at things from a new, top-down perspective.

This is amazing electronics forum, thanks guys

I'm looking a good smps book, is anyone know where can I find switch mode power supply book ?

If i write funny things, because english is not my native language, feel free to laugh. It is not always easy to find the right expression.

Thanks for the link.  I took a quick look at the PDF.  I didn't realize that the term SWITCHMODE was trademarked.

 :) :) :)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!

There's a lot of good articles on high speed circuit design here: http://www.sigcon.com/Pubs/pubsChron.htm

http://www.sigcon.com   is the site of Dr. Howard Johnson, author of

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.

Good link at the top thanks.

i always think about that in every curriculum vitae for an electronic job postulation, i will like to see something like, i saw all the videos from that video series called eevblog as a course... i think that this video series deserve it as a kind of course... i think that in this field of educational material eevblog is the best resource you can get from some point of view... so i will recommend it with my idea of making the whole comprehension of this video series a goal in the learning and education of electronics engineering...

Wonderful resources. I left a lot of my books from university at my parents house, and now that I am in a different province finding good online materials is essential.

Just found this when searching on the subject:

Fundamental Signal Conditioning -
http://www.mccdaq.com/PDFs/specs/Signal-Conditioning.pdf

It neatly covers some of the basics of signal conditioning.

DarlingtonPear mentioned Abebooks.com/  I purchased a copy of The Art of Electronics, 2nd edition in paperback for $20.05USD plus $4.20 shipping.  I received it today and it is in pristine condition.

If you have an android device, you can download for free Lessons in Electric Circuits from Google Play. It has helped me so much into understanding the great world of electronics.  :-+
Without it I would still be  |O :-// :scared: :rant: :wtf:

Also, if you prefer a proper book, buy Electronic Project Building for Beginners - Circuits and Projects by R.A. Penfold. It's a small, nice easy read covering pretty much anything to get you started. And it only cost me £5 :-DMM

 But my biggest support goes to our EEVBlog master David and to everyone on this forum. If you are willing to learn then they are willing to help. :clap:

What is the story with the art of electronic student editions?
Are they workbooks? or Have chapter questions?

I have a copy of the Art of Electronics and the student handbook , so I can say they are separate books with 2nd author - additional .
I would have to back in my library to give more specific info - old-farters ;)
