A brilliant beginners book.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Arduino For Dummies (Paperback)
Yet another excellent DUMMIES guide, this time for a basic (plus a bit) insight into using and working with the Arduino series of micro-controller boards.
If you're looking at this book then I would guess you already have a reason and won't be simply thinking "Arduino? Whats that? I'll buy the book...."
It covers the basics of the Arduino as well as the basic needed electronics to go with it as you can't use one without a degree of the other.
The thing with the Arduino series of boards is that you're limited only by your imagination, electronic theory and, as with many things, just how much extra money you wish to throw at your interest.
Unfortunately if you're a UK resident you will, of course, have to be prepared to get ripped off by the UK vendors for most of the addons where the standard cost conversion seems to be to take the US price, double it and add the number you first thought of! Cynical? Yes I am after too many years in the industry!
But the book is good and a great basis on which your Arduino experience can begin.
