I'm pleased, 3 May 2010
So far I've mainly dipped into this book and have just bought the supplies for the first two chapters (11 experiments and circuits). My main aim was get my son (and me as well) to appreciate the underlying concepts of circuits after building a few solder by numbers kits from Maplin and this appears to fit the bill.
One thing to remember is that the costs go beyond just buying the book. Individual components are relatively cheap but the initial outlay on a multimeter, breadboard & soldering iron etc. is definitely beyond pocket money. That said once the core items are purchased the rest of the components can be bought as an when needed.
