About the Book:

Electronics All-in-One For Dummies is intended to be a reference for the most important topics you need to know when you dabble in building your own electronic circuits. It’s a big book made up of eight smaller books, which we
at the home office like to call minibooks. Each of these minibooks covers the basics of one key topic for working with electronics, such as circuit building techniques, how electronic components like diodes and transistors work or
using integrated circuits.
