Handy way to get started with Electonics
on 14 December 2012
This is a handy set of parts to start experimenting with electronics, containing a 555 timer, transistors, resistors, capacitors, LEDs, wires and a BreadBoard. The booklet explains the components well, but is a bit short of example circuits to make, although these are easy enough to find on the internet. I think the booklet should take things a little further and that's why I didn't give it 5 stars.
That said, the range of components is well thought out and it's excellent value as otherwise to buy a variety of parts like this you'd mostly have to buy far more than you need to learn with, and probably spend twice as much money. The breadboard on its own would cost £4+ on Amazon.
A good companion to this set would be the cheap digital multimeter at £5-£7.
