The “Easy Electronics (Make: Handbook), 1st Edition” is a great book for beginners as it reveals the basics of electronics. Easy Electronics is written by the author Charles Platt. Charles is a contributing editor and regular columnist for Make: magazine, where he writes about electronics and tools. Easy Electronics is a must-read book for anyone who feels hesitant and does not perform experiments inaccurate way. This book will take the reader step by step through 12 basic projects. With the help of these 12 experiments, the reader will learn all about resistors, switches, capacitors, transistors, audio transducers, silicon chip and much more. Before starting this book, there is no prior knowledge is required and no math is involved.
Furthermore, you will learn how to read schematics by comparing them with the circuit that you build. The author uses a few chapters on a quick refresher on those topics and then he moves on. Each topic is covered clearly and concisely and packed with the details that you learn to be truly effective. He provides step by step instructions on simple projects with progression and a good explanation of concepts and actions with the cause and effect of each different design. Easy Electronics engages all the newbies and professionals from start to end of the page. In summary, Easy Electronics is a perfect book for newbies and professionals who want to know more about Electronics.
The “Make: Sensors: A Hands-On Primer for Monitoring the Real World with Arduino and Raspberry Pi 1st Edition” provides a good basis for developing projects with the Arduino and RPi. Tero Karvinen, Kimmo Karvinen and Ville Valtokari are the authors of this book. The book Make: Arduino Bots and Gadgets is a heavily illustrated guide to incorporating the Arduino platform into six projects which illustrate embedded systems concepts. The author’s stated ultimate goal is to teach the reader how to build prototypes, and in that, they are largely successful.
This is an excellent, fully illustrated idea book for making things with software, physical devices, and simple hand fabrication. The authors have a range of skills in Arduino, Mechanical Construction, Linux, Electronics and Physical Systems. The book most closely resembles O’Reilly/Make Publications excellent previous book, Making Things Talk, with the benefit of a few more years of experience in illustrating project construction and careful step by step instructions. Skills taught include the Arduino hardware and software environment, programming an Android smartphone, use of relays, stepper motors, remote controls and other similar electronic devices, as well as project construction with a glue gun, pliers and Dremel tool. The projects are intriguing and give instruction in important Hackerspace skills. Overall, this is a great read and an easy introduction to Arduino and embedded systems.
