3.0 out of 5 stars It could easily be fixed by spending marginally more on a something ..., 23 April 2015

Well not 100% but much cheaper than equivalents. The main problem is with the Voltage regulator knob which is not precise enough in operation.. It could easily be fixed by spending marginally more on a something like a spiral potentiometer which I remember from my time at University. You need to be able to set 5 - 6 V for current ICs. You don't need the current knob except perhaps as an overvoltage protection - obviously you need the ammeter display.

It was only an impulse purchase.

Nice folk type songs including some Welsh language tracks. Very different to her Catatonia days!

4.0 out of 5 stars I recommend it to those interested in politics as am I, 19 Mar. 2015

Fascinating but a bit more serious and less amusing than Paul Flynn's recent " How to be an MP " which I suspect inspired it. I recommend it to those interested in politics as am I.

An excellent effort by amateurs to write a short story collection. Most commendable.

An excellent medium level introduction to the subject. You do need a bit of Calculus for the Theory section!

4.0 out of 5 stars Go for it! Very interesting., 15 Aug. 2014
I bought this on a friend's recommendation and I've had great fun and learned a lot! Unfortunately I found inserting components into the breadboard difficult as the wires tend to bend. I would have loved it when I was young and had better eyesight and more nimble fingers but I wasn't really up to the manual dexterity required now but had no trouble with the code which is related to C which I already knew to some extent.

Very good once I got to know it! It seems well built and has a comprehensive range of easy to use functions. Unfortunately the instructions were awful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too old to be still useful, 15 Aug. 2014

This gives a publication date of 2003 which at the rate electronics moves on is far too dated to be still useful and on sale. It would have been good in its time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 15 Aug. 2014

Very clearly written and attractively laid out. It also specifically address the particular features of modern electronic keyboards instead of just dealing with general piano stuff. I will probably get the next volume?
