Hands-On Electronics: A Practical Introduction to Analog and Digital Circuits.
"Hands-On Electronics" is a book written by Daniel M. Kaplan and Christopher G. White. The book provides a practical and hands-on approach to learning about electronics. It is designed for beginners and hobbyists who want to learn about electronics and build practical projects.

The book covers a wide range of topics, including basic concepts such as voltage, current, and resistance, as well as more advanced topics such as analog and digital circuits, microcontrollers, and sensors. It also includes step-by-step tutorials and practical projects that readers can build to reinforce their learning.

This book started life as the laboratory manual for the course Physics 300, ‘Instrumentation Laboratory’, offered every semester at the Illinois Institute of Technology to a mixture consisting mostly of physics, mechanical engineering, and aeronautical engineering majors. Each experiment can be completed in about four hours (with one or two additional hours of preparation). This book differs from existing books of its type in that it is faster-paced and goes into a bit less depth, in order to accommodate the needs of a one-semester course covering the elements of both analog and digital electronics. In curricula that normally include one year of laboratory instruction in electronics, it may be suitable for the first part of a two-semester sequence, with the second part devoted to computers and computer interfacing – this scheme has the virtue of separating the text for the more rapidly changing computer material from the more stable analog and digital parts. The book is also suitable for self-study by a person who has access to the necessary equipment and wants a hands-on introduction to the subject. We feel strongly, and experience at IIT has borne out, that to someone who will be working with electronic instrumentation, hands-on education in the techniques of electronics is much more valuable than a blackboard and-lecture approach. Certainly, it is a better learning process than simply reading a book and working through problems. The appendices suggest sources for equipment and supplies, provide tables of abbreviations and symbols, and list recommendations for further reading, which includes chapter-by-chapter correspondences to some popular electronics texts written at similar or somewhat deeper levels to ours: the two slim volumes by Dennis Barnaal, Analog Electronics for Scientific Application and Digital Electronics for Scientific Application (reissued by Waveland Press, 1989); Horowitz and Hill’s comprehensive The Art of Electronics (Cambridge University Press, 1989); Diefenderfer and Holton’s Principles of Electronic Instrumentation (Saunders, 1994).
The book includes step-by-step instructions and explanations for the following experiments:
1. Multimeter, breadboard, and oscilloscope;
2. RC circuits;
3. Diodes and power supplies;
4. Transistors I;
5. Transistors II: FETs;
6. Transistors III: differential amplifier;
7. Introduction to operational amplifiers;
8. More op-amp applications;
9. Comparators and oscillators;
10. Combinational logic;
11. Flip-flops: saving a logic state;
12. Monostables, counters, multiplexers, and RAM; 
13. Digital↔analog conversion. These thirteen experiments fit comfortably within a sixteen-week semester. If you or your instructor prefers, one or two experiments may easily be omitted to leave a couple of weeks at the semester’s end for independent student projects. To this end, Chapter 6, ‘Transistors III’, has been designed so that no subsequent experiment depends on it; obviously this is also the case for Chapter 13, ‘Digital↔analog conversion’, which has no subsequent experiment. As you work through the exercises, you will find focus questions and detailed instructions indicated by the symbol ‘’. Key concepts for each exercise will be denoted by the symbol  ’. Finally, the standard system of units for electronics is the MKS system. Although you may occasionally run across other unit systems, we adhere strictly to the MKS standard.  

Daniel M. Kaplan is an electrical engineer with over 25 years of experience in the field of electronics. He has worked on a variety of projects, including computer-controlled systems, data acquisition systems, and digital signal processing. Kaplan is also the author of several other books on electronics and programming, including "Building a Home Security System with Raspberry Pi" and "Programming the Raspberry Pi, Second Edition".

In "Hands-On Electronics", Kaplan shares his knowledge and expertise with readers in an easy-to-understand way. The book is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn about electronics and build practical projects.
