How can I learn basics of Electronics to advance ?
How can I learn Electronics ?
I wanna learn electronics basics .. How can I learn ? I don't know where to start.

I love making things. my dream is to make a cool robot (I use youtube videos. but, I want more to learn)!!

I wanna learn it. And I wanna learn mechanics too..

Where can I learn ?
I don't want to do any degree on it. it's just for hobby and interest.
What electronics kits I need to buy ?

When I was a Kid, I used to remove internal parts of my toys and I used to make a New thing out of it . I always wanted to know How things work.even Now I do !
But, I don't know any thing about circuits stuff .. I have fear of getting electric shock LOL!

Well I want your advice guys !

The way to learn anything is to immerse yourself into it. Read as many books or papers on the subject as you can. Ask as many question in appropriate forums and practise, practise practise.
If you have little knowledge of the basics and don't want to spend too much money start with site dedicated to teaching children. These are easily understandable and a good place for basic information that you can then build on.
In Australia there are "National Geographic" stores that have kits for building electronics... again, they are for children, but if I wanted to learn something I'd start at the beginning. I suspect that you have similar stores in India and.or you could get some sent to you.

And practice, practice, practice.

Good luck, learning new takes enthusiasm and dedication and work.

Try to find some magazine articles or websites that have circuit diagrams for things like flip-flops, amplifiers, power supplies and radios. Get the parts (transistors, diodes, resistors and capacitors) and try to construct some examples. Once you get a good idea of how these parts behave (particularly transistors) you can move on to much more complex systems.

What about just taking a community college corse on the basic subject.. just take that class you do not have to get a degree but at least that would point you in the right direction.. so you could learn all the SAFETY TIPS AND PRECAUTIONS... It would give you a great foundation for your studying on your own and then you could practice safely having all the foundation and basics!

Do you have a community college where you can sign up for just 1 class? Usually Jr college!
