    Book Review:
    All New Electronics Self Teaching Guide, 3rd Edition
    Harry Kybett and Earl Boysen
    ISBN: 0470289619
    May 2008
    426 pages

    Category: General Electronics

    Brief Description:

    This book is the next step for the reader who has absorbed introductory electronics concepts and wants to gain an in depth understanding of discrete components and circuits. The authors start out each topic with an introduction to the method for calculating a parameter, a concept, a type of circuit, or an experiment. The readers are then asked to answer questions, and can check their answers against the answer key supplied by the authors. The chapters include:

    DC Review
    The Diode
    Introduction to the Transistor
    The Transistor Switch
    AC Pre-Test and Review
    AC in Electronics
    Resonant Circuits
    Transistor Amplifiers
    Oscillators
    The Transformer
    Power Supply Circuits
    Conclusion and Final Self-Test


    My Review:

    This book does a great job of stepping the reader through the calculations needed to determine the value of components needed to make a circuit work, or conversely, the value of circuit parameters, such as current, voltage, power, or frequency. I really like the method the authors use in introducing each topic and asking questions that cause the reader to think about the concepts or calculations. Then the readers can check their answers to verify their understanding of the concepts or equations.

    The authors have also done an excellent job of weaving the circuit diagrams, equations and text together to make the book easy to read and understand. I find this book stands out above others in helping readers really master these calculations in a well-thought out and effective way.

    My Rating: 9/10

    This is a very good book. I learned a lot from the chapters on transistor circuits and oscillator circuits.

    electronics self taught guide

    I am very new to the academic side of the electronics field. I agree 100% with the author of the Thread. Even at my level I could follow the chapters. This book will be a constant reference text.

    Go and look in the Indian market for yourself. What an absurd request.
