The student edition of the art of electronics as quite easy to undestand giving quick, clear and concise explanations of basic electronics. I would not reccommend this book though as a stand alone, but rather with the lab manual and any of the other associated mterial that was written in parallel, as a thier is a lot of space dedicated to lab exercises which can not be fully utilised without the lab manuals etc.

I love this book, its the sort of book that you can dip into or read a chapter when you need to double check your thinking. I also have the full "The Art of Electronics" book but use this verison when I am teaching students and running workshops, as it introduces an element of fun with the hand drawn cartoons and schematics.

This should be a must for anyone interested or working in electronics. The book is ring bound so it lies flat on the desk, unlike the full hardback version.

The Art of Electronics is an excellent guide to electronics but it is now hopelessly out of date.

For this student manual this is even more of a problem: it's entire purpose is to set exercises to practice what the Art preaches: but it is so out of date that it is simply impossible to source the parts you need!

Not worth buying unless you're a collector or simply are interested for historical or reasons of curiosity.

I bought this thinking it would be offering the answers to all the exercises set in the "Art of Electronics" book.
Although it does give some well worked out exercises it falls short of being the "answer book".
It's worth purchasing if you're a student and want to see how one should work out an exercise. Otherwise, if you're a professional then you can easily pass it.

Excellent, but not a stand-alone. 18 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
Either use this manual with another text (such as The Art of Electronics - Horowitz and Hill) or with a good instructor, or both. It does an excellent job of taking you step by step through many circuit building techniques that are essential to electronics and it is a good reference manual. My only complaint is that it tends to pose interesting questions for the reader without ever following up or guiding the reader towards a conclusion. It's good to get you thinking, but unless you have time to delve into every detail with your own investigations, it can be frustrating not to get a clear answer to vague questions and sinarios. Overall, it is a great book and essential for laboratory use. The authors are comical, but not overly so, thus making the venture of reading this book a delight.

Why go to an Electronic school and disk out $10's of thosands, when you can learn most from this book. Be sure to get the LAB book.

Great tutorials! 11 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
This book can stand on its own -- but the synergy created with its "big brother" makes it fly!
The physical details of the circuits described will become abundantly clear to the reader -- nothing is left hidden, and performing the lab steps cements this in place.

Good reference 10 Feb. 2014
By EXO523 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
Very nice book to accompany their electronics beast! I teach the course and found the student manual to be very helpful to students. More details than the main text, and in a writing style more accessible to the beginner.

Extremely Useful 16 Jun. 2014
By Jacob Chancery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
Extremely useful book. I bought this as a required text for a college course. But you don't need a college degree to get a lot of mileage from this. The book starts with Ohm's law and resistors and takes you through the entire scope of electronics. By the end you'll be building computers from scratch. Special sections on high frequency circuits and low voltage devices. I commonly return to this text to refresh my knowledge and solve problems that arise at work. If you're interested in tinkering with electronics I highly recommend it. The concrete example circuits are helpful, as are the examples of common mistakes.
