Introduction to Basic Electronics
Introducing… Introduction to Basic Electronics
Introduction to Basic Electronics is a solid introductory course in basic electronics that will provide you with the information you will need to begin building, repairing and experimenting with electronic-circuits on your own.
Downloadable – Quick-Learning – And It’s Inexpensive
This downloadable home study package is perfect for anyone with a strong interest in how things work. Someone who perhaps has little or no experience working with electronic-components and circuits, but wants to know more and learn it quickly and inexpensively!
It Explains Topics In Simple Easy To Understand Terms!
Introduction To Basic Electronics covers all the important topics, voltage and current, capacitors and inductors, reactance and impeadance plus a chapter on transistors and diodes, all using short understandable explanations and examples.
Includes “Hands-On Experience” With Circuit Building
And since the Introduction to Basic Electronics home study course is divided into two parts you’ll feel much more comfortable building electronic-circuits and projects on your own successfully without needing help, because the second part is about hands on electronic project construction.
Introduction To Basic Electronics Helps Make Gaining Basic Electronic Skills Fun And Easier!
This Special Introduction to Basic Electronics Program Starts With These Two Downloadable Books Below.
The First Book Covers The Nine Most Important Topics You Need To Know!
1 Current And Voltage – A good explanation of what it takes to get invisible electrons moving in a circuit.
Chapter 1 is about the factors that must be present in any circuit to make it operate. We’ll talk about voltage and current flow and an example that we have all seen of a static charge causing a current to flow. Next we talk about conductors and insulators and why conductors conduct and why insulators insulate. Plus a few other interesting things about voltage and current.
2 Resistance And Resistors – Discover which materials can control the flow of those amazing little electrons.
Now that we have those electrons moving we need to manage them and this means talking about resistance and defining the ohm. We move on to why resistors have two values. Next we talk about resistivity of common metals and how that information is used to compare different conductors.
3 Capacitance And Capacitors – This explains how the strange Electric Field can be contained in a box.
How a capacitor is made of metal plates or foil separated by an insulating material. It’s the insulating material that holds the important electric field and affects the total capacitance as well as the maximum voltage that can be applied. We talk about nine common insulating materials and their ‘dielectric constants’ which is a measure of how well each contains the electric field and other interesting facts about capacitors and how they work.
4 Inductance And Coils – Find out what happens when a Magnetic Field and a Coil of Wire come together.
This is the chapter where the concept of induction is introduced. Here you will learn about how a magnetic field cutting through a coil of wire induces a voltage in that coil. We talk about how the inductor works with current flow and magnetic fields and how important that knowledge will become later on.
5 Alternating Current – Here find out why it’s so important to shuttle those electrons back and forth.
Alternating current powers the world today and there is good reason for that. In one word it’s – transformers! In this chapter we talk about different types of common alternating current waveforms. Including the square and sine wave. And voltages at various times in the waveform. And we talk about frequency of waves and why they are all measured based on exactly one second in time.
6 Introducing Transformers – How transformers change something into something that looks like something else.
Since we talked about alternating current and inductors, that brings us right to transformers. For one thing they can change or transform A.C. voltage to a value more useable. Transformers can step voltage up or down or both and transform impeadance. You’ll find transformers in use from power line frequencies up through radio frequencies. Understanding a little about how transformers work is important.
7 Introduction to Reactance – Learn about a weird type of resistance that consumes zero power.
This is where the effect of reactance is introduced and how it changes with the frequency of the applied A.C. voltage. It’s all explained in this interesting chapter.
8 Introducing Impedance – It’s what you get when you combine resistance with reactance.
Now this is where it gets really interesting, because impedance is what you get when you combine pure resistance with reactance from the last chapter! A.C. current and voltage will not stay in step or phase with each other when reactance is present and will lead or lag depending on if the circuit is capacitive or inductive.
9 Semiconductors – Transistors and Diodes – This chapter provides a strong overview and basic-understanding of these components.
Chapter nine is a good overview of transistors and diodes both old and new. We talk about silicon and germanium diodes and transistors. We talk about how bipolar transistors are put together as three separate layers and we’ll talk about field effect transistors (FET) including JFET, MOSFET and other types. You’ll also learn about a type of silicon diode that is used as a variable capacitor and a diode that is used as a microwave oscillator and one that is used as a voltage regulator.
It’s all there in chapter 9.
Now Here Comes Book Two!
Book number two is where you start to put to use what you have learned so far. It’s the Hands-On learning part. This is where the rubber hits the pavement!
Building Simple Circuits
Section One: Building Circuits With Series and Parallel Resistors. – Series and parallel resistor networks are the foundation of all circuits. Here we build some and briefly study their properties.
Section Two: How To Build A Simple Light Emitting Diode Circuit. – By adding the light emitting diode to a series resistor circuit we can now see the circuit operate. Adding lights to your circuit makes it much more interesting.
Section Three: See How To Build A Simple Transistor Switch. – Controlling a light or a buzzer with a transistor opens the door to all sorts of possible designs.
Section Four: Build This Unusual Visual Capacitor Charge-Discharge Circuit. – It’s helpful to be able to visualize how a capacitor operates. With this circuit you can see a capacitor charge and discharge as it tries to hold the applied voltage constant.
Inside are pictures showing the soldering for these circuits and also pictures of the solderless breadboard version layouts so you will see exactly how to do it.

Also included along with these two books:
All Chapter Review Notes – At the end of each chapter, one through nine in book one, review notes of all the important points covered in that chapter are included.
Nine Chapter Review Audios – To make things easier still, all those chapter notes were made into 9 audios that you can download and listen to at your convenience.
