 Yes, PRACTICAL ELECTRONICS FOR INVENTORS is a very good book, especially the way that the author gets to the core of complex areas and explains them a succinct and simple way. I wish this book had been available when I started learning about electronics. :)

EMC FOR PRODUCT DESIGNERS

This is the bible for EMC. Not only is it packed with easy-to-understand theory, but it gives practical guidance too, and it is a good read. Highly recommended. :-+

I saw on Pete Vree (YT channel) a free TI calculator emulator.. this works for me! http://wabbitemu.org/ From the site:

"Texas Instruments graphing calculator right on your Windows, Mac, or Android device. Wabbitemu supports the TI-73, TI-81, TI-82, TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-83 Plus Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus, TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, TI-85, and TI-86. Fast and convenient, Wabbitemu allows you to always have your trusty calculator with you. Because Wabbitemu is an emulator, the calculator it creates will act exactly like the real thing."

AFAIK, this has not been posted on the forum yet, and it may be of help to "someone in a pinch" (no cash or dead calc. batteries?)
** On my mid-range i5 it uses 40-60 meg RAM and between 6 and 10% of CPU - WMMV

WOW!!! I spent the last hour downloading or creating bookmarks to most of these recommendations!
Thanks for sharing all these resources!!!

PRACTICAL ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

This is a really great book, covering the basics up to fairly advanced. It is comprehensive, fairly light on math (only where necessary), well presented and a good read. I would say that it spans the intermediate to advanced level. But, even if you are a newbee in electronics but planning on study and advancing, it would be worth looking at. Highly recommended.

I don't know if this is on purpose or by error, but for the few here interested in state-of-the-art in high-power electronics,  it seems issues of Bodo's Power Systems are available by year and month (directly in the URL).

Eg: http://www.bodospower.com/restricted/downloads/bp_2019_01.pdf

THE CALCULUS STORY by David Acheson

If you are just getting into calculus, this book is excellent. It explains both differentiation and integration in a simple, succinct way, with plenty of diagrams to illustrate the principles. Highly recommended:

DAYCOUNTER CALCULATORS

There are a load of calculators on the net, but the DayCounter calculators are particularly comprehensive and wide ranging:

For some reason, the DayCounter deciBell calculator is at a different web address to the other calculators:

Hello,

I wanted to take a look at the Philips book linked by Mike in post #204 (thank you, Mike!  :-+), and I found that having 8 separate PDF files for 8 chapters was not ideal (anyhow, that looked messy in my PDF folder).

If anyone is interested, here is the book, slightly rearranged: the table of contents is now at the beginning, the index is still at the end, and the 8 chapters follow one another nicely. The entries in the table of contents are not clickable (they didn't either in the original files) but the PDF bookmarks for the chapters do work.

thanks to everyone for the great list of URLs and books in this topic !

Antenna Physics by Robert J Zavrel. This takes a very deep dive into how antennas work, why they work and how to understand them.

It is described as "An Introduction" and this is true relative to the subject but those who want some breezy and light reading with no math, this is not the book for you.  If you are not really facile with physics and math but wish to be enlightened, this is an awesome book. 

I recommend the soft cover over the Kindle edition because the Kindle does not do well with displaying the formulas.

INTRODUCTION TO SMPS CONTROL TECHNIQUES

Below is a link to  the slides from a Micochip web seminar, which give a wonderfully, clear and concise overview of the different types of control for SMPS, ranging from the traditional to the most modern: 'traditional control techniques are like driving a car by looking out of the rear window, whereas modern control techniques are like driving a car by looking through the front window- the first is reactive and the second is proactive.'

Well worth taking a few minutes to read if you have an interest in SMPs:

My vote is for "Electronic Communication" by Robert Shrader. You may take that with a generous dash of salt.
Even the latest edition is outdated by today's standards. Yet Shrader really knew how to communicate electronics, if you'll forgive the permutation of the title. I wish I'd discovered it earlier.

This might have been posted before (couldn't find it in a search) but there are a lot of reference designs here http://www.ti.com/reference-designs/index.html which look interesting.

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.

A useful resource, I lacked this.


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.

Just bumped into an impressive collection of info about electronics:
https://www.analog.com/en/education/courses-and-tutorials.html
https://www.analog.com/en/education/education-library/op-amp-applications-handbook.html

It goes from books about various aspects of electronics, from passive components to Opamps and Spice.
Also seems to have  course material for self education witht lab experiments etc.

DiodeGoneWild has put together an overview of Active PFC and a bit of reverse engineering on a 850 watt Enermax PSU.
 *Edit - I'd recommend starting at about the 5 minute mark to skip a lot of the basic component identification blabbery.
