To be able to read schematics you must know the schematic symbols. But you don’t need to memorize them all! Here you’ll find an overview of the most used schematic symbols in electronic circuits.
If you want to learn and build your own inventions with electronics, you need to learn the basics of electronics.
Without a good understanding of basic concepts such as current and voltage, it's going to be hard (or impossible) to understand how different circuits work.
But it doesn't have to be hard. Do *not* confuse basic electronics with "all electronics theory that exist". A lot of books and blogs make this mistake. And it's discouraging for beginners.
Basic electronics is easy.
This page is a library of resources to help you learn the real basics of electronics.

When you start learning about circuits, you’re bound to ask “what is ground?” at one point or another. Are you actually suppose to connect your circuit into the ground?? First of all: grounding in electronics is different from the earth connection in wall outlets (although they sometimes are connected).
Do you want to learn electronics, so that you can build your own gadgets? There is a ton of resources on learning electronics – so where do you start? And what do you actually need? And in which order? If you don’t know what you need to learn, you can easily waste a lot of […]
Are you struggling to understand circuits and see how currents flow? I wrote this based on an interaction I had with Gary. And maybe it can help you. I was developing some new material for a course. And I used Gary as my test subject. He’s an adult British gentleman with no electronics background whatsoever. […]
There’s a bunch of places to buy electronic components. Myself, I love to go to a brick-and-mortar store to buy components, because then I can get them without waiting. Unfortunately, many cities don’t have these anymore. So what do you do?
An inductor is just a coil of wire.
It’s incredibly easy to make one — just make some loops with a wire. But because wires create magnetic fields, you’ll soon see that it can do some interesting stuff.
That’s what you’ll learn in this article.
