Learning Electronics for hobbyists and beginning students
Learning electronics tutorials for beginners is the primary goal of this site. My “course” pages are numbered in an order that I think most people would like learning electronics while building circuits. This page mostly focuses on listing them. I recently added the following page for people who want to learn about electronics, without focusing on the building of prototype circuits. Simple learning basic electronics guide for beginners
Simplest circuits introduction
Electronics is made up of circuits. Circuits have 1 or more components connected with conductive material to at least 1 power supply. A light bulb being lit by a voltage source is the simplest circuit. Light bulbs are made for a certain voltage, so it is important that you make sure the light bulb is rated for the voltage you will use.
Light bulbs are now rare in basic electronics. Mostly we use LEDs, which need a high enough value series resistor to protect the LED from the power supply and keep the resistor from overheating. Lightbulbs are resistors that are made to create light from the heat that they generate.

My General Self study tips: It’s good to be able to learn things on your own.
- Browse the main topics of a subject you are interested in..
- Then start studying what is most interesting/fun to learn. Be aware though that early introductory topics may be needed to understand later topics. But don’t let tough topics take up so much time that you don’t master easy topics.
- Make a brief list of topics you have learned and also what you need to understand better. Go over that list often. Make sure you still understand what you learned well in the past, and also, use the list as a reminder to go over things you need to understand better.
- Practice the actual skills you are studying as much as possible.
- Practice explaining the topic to someone else (you can just roleplay this by yourself).
- Review often.
- Certification – Preparing to get certified in a large number of interesting skills is often a self study process. Certification study material usually assumes that you will be self studying, and probably won’t cost much. Classes are also often available if you want to take them. And of course, you can actually get certified, which may just be passing an exam.
