Hi

I would like to ask you what books do you find useful in the field of Electronics?

I am searching for a book which would be similar to two listed below:

1) The Art of Electronics
2) Electronic Devices

As far as I am concern "The Art of Electronics" is good book for circuits and "Electronic Devices" has great pictures of electrons flow.

I don`t know which one to buy. But I thought you may add some new books before I buy one.

Book can consist either analog or digital electronics or both of them.

Hi Jim

Saying I am interested in more advanced books I meant that I am looking for book which had more just than Ohm`s Law and voltage dividers etc..

Basically I would like to hear your opinion which book you like and why you think it is a must on your bookshelf ;)

So far I found: "Art of Electronics" and "Electronic Devices" to be right candidates.

Art of Electronics is a LOT more than Ohm's Law and voltage dividers.

The book I most frequently refer to is "Mathematics for Electricians and Radiomen" by Nelson Cooke, 1942. All the crap you need for DC/AC/Polyphase circuit analysis in only 600 pages *plus* tips on using your slide rule.

"Sedra and Smith" is a popular college text that covers a lot of ground:

Without knowing the book "Electronic Devices", I'd say "Art of Electronics" is kind of a bible. It was my first electronics book I got in high school, and has been a good assistance during university electronics courses too. It does not replace books used in courses, but is a nice add-on.

It has a kind of a hands-on approach but also contains necessary theories and formulas to back thing up. However it is kind of an old book, so some things are a bit outdated or at least you will feel nostalgic reading about them, but in general, it has been a very eye-opening book for me.

The book tells something about everything, instead of everything about something.

I agree. These two books are complementing each other.
So you confirmed me that my choice is right :)

Thanks for links to other materials.

Now that i'm home i can say some of the books that i vote for..

"Digital Fundamentals" Thomas L. Floyd, cover all the basics for Digital, and is well explained.
"Fundamentals of Analog Circuits". Floyd and Bucha. As the other, is well explained.
I like Floyd.
