Easy Electronics (Make: Handbook) Price:  $5.55 (as of 09/05/2019 04:10 PST- Details)


This is the simplest, quickest, least technical, most affordable introduction to basic electronics. No tools are necessary–not even a screwdriver. Easy Electronics must satisfy anyone who has felt frustrated by entry-level books that don’t seem to be as clear and simple as they are supposed to be.

Brilliantly clear graphics will take you step-by-step through 12 basic projects, none of which must take more than half an hour. The usage of alligator clips to connect components, you see and hear immediateresults. The hands-on approach is fun and intriguing, especially for members of the family exploring the projects together.

The 12 experiments will introduce you to switches, resistors, capacitors, transistors, phototransistors, LEDs, audio transducers, and a silicon chip. You can even learn to read schematics by comparing them with the circuits that you build.

No prior knowledge is required, and no math is involved. You learn by seeing, hearing, and touching. By the end of Experiment 12, you’ll be eager to move on to a more detailed book. Easy Electronics will function perfectly as a prequel to the same creator’s bestseller, Make: Electronics.

All the components listed in the book are inexpensive and readily available from online sellers. A very affordable kit has been developed at the side of the book to eliminate the chore of shopping for separate parts. A QR code inside the book will take you to the vendor’s web site.

Concepts include:

  • Transistor as a switch or an amplifier
  • Phototransistor to function as an alarm
  • Capacitor to store and release electricity
  • Transducer to create sounds from a timer
  • Resistor codes
  • A miniature light bulb to display voltage
  • The inner workings of a switch
  • Using batteries and resistors in series and parallel
  • Creating sounds by the pressure of your finger
  • Making a matchbox that beeps when you touch it
