9780070245785: Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics

In the field of introductory electronics, Stan Gibilisco wrote the book. Now this gifted teacher/author has updated his best-selling guide to reach audiences interested in the latest electronic technologies: wireless communications plus computers and the Internet.

Like its predecessor, the Second Edition is a complete self-teaching tool. Because it assumes no prior technical knowledge, true novices can use it at their own pace to master the fundamentals of electronics for work or hobbies. Gibilisco's proven blend of clear descriptions, extensive illustrations, and numerous self-tests make this a true "stand-alone" guide -- whether readers seek to understand the workings of AC/DC, the newest cellular communications and satellite systems, or their own desktop computers and the World Wide Web.
