This book is best used for people who’ve gone through our tutorials and want more! Please note that the book does not come with any electronic parts or hardware. You’ll probably want an Arduino starter pack or similar so that you have the Arduino, USB cable, power adapter, wires, and a protoshield. Read more


Makeelectronics Lrg
Make: Electronics (Charles Platt) – 1st print
We checked out this book before putting it in the shop, its geared towards ultimate-beginners and teaches electronics starting from basic core of analog to some digital to microcontrollers. You’ll learn tools, prototyping soldering techniques, transistors, 555’s, etc. while completing useful projects. A nice and tidy intro! This book is a good accompaniment to learning microcontrollers/Arduino in that it fills the necessary electronics theory and background. Read more

  1. These are great additions to the store. I’m sure you’re well aware of others in case you’re thinking about expanding the offerings, but here’s a list of some favorites sitting on my bookshelf:

    Getting Started With Arduino, Banzi
    Tinkering With Arduino, Weldin (e-book)
    Electrical Engineering 101, Ashby

  2. It would be great if Adafruit offered kits containing supplies and components for the experiments.
