More a Grand Tour of Electronics than Basic Theory 28 Aug. 2002
By darkguardian2 - Published on
Format: Paperback
The title says "Basic Electronic Theory" but it seems more a glossed over tour through the world of Electronics. It started out ok showing basic resistors, capacitor, inductors for dc and ac circuits. It was surprisingly light on mathematics considering you need to use math to determine current, total resistance and the like. It began to unravel after the chapter on tubes. Classes of amplifiers were given a paragraph each. Power supplies were mentioned with nothing mentioned on how to design one. Horn went into basic radio amplification and antenna. Mentioning Hedrodyne in only one small paragraph!!! Everything was glossed over. A lot of this material could have been left out to focus more on the basics. He writes about antennas and wavelengths (so-so) yet never defined or mentioned wavelength in the book so the beginner can follow him. The chapter on stereos should have been dropped. CD one paragraph. The material is dated on computers and stereos.(Pre-internet boon) Microprocessors were explaned in block diagram format. Lousy questions like which method is popular. Who cares which is popular when you happen to have a rare unit that needs to be fixed with that technology. Stages of a radio receiver? Basic TV? The math it did have had errors and were jumbled up in the text. The book was easy to read though. The experiments could have been design better. What beginner is going to have a signal generator? Recommended only as light reading to see what electronics is all about or as a refresher. I'm not an expert on electronics. I read over 500 pages and really didn't feel I got anything out of it. Get a good text book.
