Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics, Sixth Edition
This book will help you learn the fundamentals of electricity and electronics without taking a formal course. It can serve as a do-it-yourself study guide or as a classroom text. This sixth edition contains new material about switching power supplies, class-D amplifiers, lithium-polymer batteries, microcontrollers, and Arduino.
You’ll find a multiple-choice quiz at the end of every chapter. The quizzes are “open-book,” meaning that you may (and should) refer to the chapter text as you work out the answers. When you have finished a chapter, take the quiz, write down your answers, and then give your list of answers to a friend. Have the friend tell you your score, but not which questions you got wrong. That way, you can take the test again without bias.
When you reach the end of each section, you’ll encounter a multiple-choice test. A final exam concludes this course. The questions are a bit easier than the ones in the chapter-ending quizzes, but the tests are “closed-book.” Don’t refer back to the text as you take the part-ending tests or the final exam. For all 35 chapter-ending quizzes, all four tests, and the final exam, a satisfactory score is at least three-quarters of the answers correct. The answer key is in Appendix A .
If you need a mathematics or physics refresher, you can select from several of Stan Gibilisco’s McGraw-Hill books dedicated to those topics. If you want to bolster your mathematics knowledge base before you start this course, study Algebra Know-It-All and Pre-Calculus Know-It-All . On the practical side, check out Electricity Experiments You Can Do at Home .
If you get bitten by the microcontroller bug, then you’ll find Simon Monk’s Programming Arduino: Getting Started with Sketches and Programming Arduino Next Steps: Going Further with Sketches useful companions to this book.
The authors welcome ideas and suggestions for future editions.
Stan Gibilisco and Simon Monk
