Well We've seen quite a few rendition's and some a little different stuff going on recent years and we know who to turn to and who probably already took a Peak at

And always these same question oh I have this unit or that or why should I choose it over the next one stuff

Have started, and while it looks like a good book, it has annoyed me from the start; numbers without units, talk of 'proving' Coulomb's law through experiment; and this is just page 3

You have to look beyond it's roots in engineering.

Hard for me; he has electrons in planetary orbits... that's not Engineering, that's just plain wrong.

It is a Science and methodology that the math works and it works....and you can transfer over it all to other things etc.

This actually has me more intrigued than anything.

Sadly, newest revision at Amazon is fourth edition.

Should I care?

Should I care?
* Latest edition of Malvino and Bates, Electronic Principles on amazon is the 8th (Bates joined with the 7th edition)
https://www.amazon.com/Electronic-Pr...nic+principles
This is the one that annoyed me (I have the 6th edition) and had you intrigued; even so it looks like a good book to start with.

* Perhaps you were looking at Practical Electronics for Inventors, 4th Edition by Paul Scherz and Simon Monk (Monk joined with the 3rd edition)
This is also a good book to start with; much cheaper, but it has a LOT of typos. I sent what I found to Monk, about 100 and others have made lists (for the 3rd edition); I estimate about 200 found so far that are still in the latest (4th) edition. Regardless of this, I like this book; 200 errors in 1000 pages means just one error every 5 pages or so, some are trivial, some serious.

* Everyone should eventually have a copy of Horowitz and Hill; The Art of Electronics; but I would not start there.


I'd start with Practical Electronics for Inventors; the price is right even if the title is misleading.
$20 for the 4th edition (latest)
