First Sentence
The title of this first chapter, "Foundations," describes its place pretty well: here you will learn techniques that will underlie circuity that later produces impressive results. Read the first page

Laboratory Electronics
(Physics 123 @ Harvard College)
Professors Jay Ewing and Thomas C. Hayes Teaching Fellow Nicholas Judson
A lab-intensive introduction to electronic circuit design. Develops circuit intuition and debugging skills through daily hands-on lab exercises, each preceded by class discussion with minimal use of mathematics and physics. The treatment moves quickly from passive circuits, through design with discrete transistors, then concentrates on application of integrated operational amplifiers to make a variety of circuits including integrators, oscillators, regulators, and filters. The digital half of the course emphasizes the use of programmable logic devices, microprocessors, and microcontrollers, while treating issues that arise in interfacing both analog and digital devices to a computer. Provides an overview of radio and television, digital audio, signal averaging, and construction techniques.
Taught by co-authors of the best-seller "The Arts of Electronics", Thomas C. Hayes. And let nice guy Nick debugging your wiring, What more can you ask for? Watch out though, the course load is extremely heavy (Some people equate it to 1.5 courses.) I found the course enormously useful if you are to encounter circuit design in your future studies.

This book can stand on its own -- but the synergy created with its "big brother" makes it fly!
The physical details of the circuits described will become abundantly clear to the reader -- nothing is left hidden, and performing the lab steps cements this in place.

Quality of this book is sub-par. The pages are so thin you can see the print on the opposite side of the page. Printed in India and half the price of any other Art of Electronics books makes me wonder if this is even a legal copy.

Excellent, but not a stand-alone. Aug. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
Either use this manual with another text (such as The Art of Electronics - Horowitz and Hill) or with a good instructor, or both. It does an excellent job of taking you step by step through many circuit building techniques that are essential to electronics and it is a good reference manual. My only complaint is that it tends to pose interesting questions for the reader without ever following up or guiding the reader towards a conclusion. It's good to get you thinking, but unless you have time to delve into every detail with your own investigations, it can be frustrating not to get a clear answer to vague questions and sinarios. Overall, it is a great book and essential for laboratory use. The authors are comical, but not overly so, thus making the venture of reading this book a delight.

Why go to an Electronic school and disk out $10's of thosands, when you can learn most from this book. Be sure to get the LAB book.

Good reference Feb. 10 2014

Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
Very nice book to accompany their electronics beast! I teach the course and found the student manual to be very helpful to students. More details than the main text, and in a writing style more accessible to the beginner.

Review for STUDENT MANUAL FOR THE ART OF ELECTRONICS Jan. 20 2007
By P. N. Panagopoulos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
Excellent inroduction for persons eager to learn how to design useful circuits and they have a background in Physics and Calculus. It is not an engineering course for elecrical engineers but it is useful for non-electrical engineering majors. Studying the text THE ART OF ELECTRONICS and the STUDENT MANUAL FOR THE ART OF ELECTRONICS someone will acquire working knowledge in electronics.
