Book: Electronics for Kids

Electronics for Kids

A great introduction, this book starts by assuming no previous knowledge then carefully builds up straightforward explanations of how components work, plus practical techniques including wire-stripping, soldering and using a multimeter. The final project uses three ICs to make a great game.

The author, Øyvind Nydal Dahl, has done a great job in providing clear step-by-step instructions with breadboard (or stripboard) layouts as well as circuit diagrams for projects. As Technical Reviewer for the book I've built all the projects myself and I'm very happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and educational introduction to electronics.

Book: Beginners Guide to Circuits

A Beginner's Guide to Circuits

Another great book by Øyvind Nydal Dahl, author of Electronics for Kids (above). There are circuit diagrams and parts lists for 9 simple projects, all of which can be built on breadboard without soldering. The first project has full step-by-step instructions to help a beginner build the others from their circuit diagrams. Common mistakes are highlighted and there's a helpful explanation of how each circuit works. This book makes a good companion to Electronics for Kids which I recommend you read first if you are new to electronics.
