If you needed a reminder of some electronics fundamentals, or you don't understand digital circuits or maybe you want to know why exactly a capacitor holds charge from an atomic perspective... this is the you want, I haven't completely read through this book but let me tell you it has done an amazing job for me so far, the book explains from the roots, provides worked examples as well as problems to test your own knowledge with, with topics spanning from analogue components and circuits to digital to even computers and microprocessors. I cannot give enough credit to John Murray for writing this rather small but fully packed book, this is definitely a must have book for anybody who want to get into electronics!

A really good book. Covers all the basics and gives you a solid grounding in Electronics. If you haven't got this book and your just starting out get it now! It really will help you out. On the down side the cover isn't a hard backed cover so its easy for it to get dog eared from over use. Although a downside I really enjoyed the book and it just shows how often I use it. It will always have a place on my bookshelf.

I am studying the A level WJEC Electronics course which they recommend and I do to. It provides a great fundamental understanding of electronics and it applications. Also to help you remember what you are learning it provides revision questions at the end of each chapter to reinforce your knowledge and understanding of electronics. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about electronics; however a good knowledge of maths is required for some of the sections as they involve a hefty amount of equations that sometimes can be confusing. Overall a great purchase :D

The content of this book is very good but the print quality of this edition by bpb publications of New Delhi is shockingly bad. The text is uneven. Photographs are too dark to see. The text in diagrams is sometimes unreadable and the pages are covered in smudges and marks. It is printed on thin low quality paper. I am returning my copy

Found this to a simple to read book for a layman like myself. Would recommend it as a simple non glossy but keeping the facts simple and easy to understand. Good investment to keep on the bookshelf as a handy reference to refresh yourself of the basics.

The book provides good coverage of the subject matter but still needs clear explanatory notes.

This book was recommended by a friend who liked books written in plain english and noy in jargon. having read the book myself, i had to agree. the book was written by a graduate who appeared to see the rift in academia and decided to bridge that gap; a skill he is clearly gifted in. The book uses plain english and covers as much depth more most mere mortals without causing more confusion than learning. It was a pleasure to read this book and I would recommend this book to anyone studying electronics at any level. A true work of art.
