Help out a newbie just starting


Recommended Posts

Hi people,

I'm a newbie in electronics, I don't know how to read a schematic for a pcb or an electronics map, with all it's components and understand what I'm looking at...

Could someone point me out to some good books for newbies ?

Something that covers the following topics:
- PCBs: Schematics, Creating (home), Reading, Understanding, etc...
- Understanding Basic Electronics components and what they do...
- Soldering and De-Soldering electronic components on pcb's: ic's, smd's, etc...

I work alot with fixing computers and I also get alot of schematics for pc interfaces, so I could really use the knowledge...

Thanks for the help !  :)

Get the magazine Servo along with Nut's and Volts.  Servo is a basic magazine about robotics and what you can do with it and how (not heavy on electronics but it can help out).  Nuts and Volts has some good articles about electronics and this should be your first starting point.  If you can get back issues on CD for Nut's and Volts.
