Make: More Electronics
Journey Deep Into the World of Logic Chips, Amplifiers, Sensors, and Randomicity
Publisher: Maker Media, Inc
Final Release Date: April 2014
Pages: 392

Want to learn even more about electronics in a fun, hands-on way? If you finished the projects in Make: Electronics, or if you're already familiar with the material in that book, you're ready for Make: More Electronics. Right away, you'll start working on real projects, and you'll explore all the key components and essential principles through the book's collection of experiments. You'll build the circuits first, then learn the theory behind them!

This book picks up where Make: Electronics left off: you'll work with components like comparators, light sensors, higher-level logic chips, multiplexers, shift registers, encoders, decoders, and magnetic sensors. You'll also learn about topics like audio amplification, randomicity, as well as positive and negative feedback. With step-by-step instructions, and hundreds of color photographs and illustrations, this book will help you use -- and understand -- intermediate to advanced electronics concepts and techniques.

      This is a good reference book for someone new or starting with electronics. Lots of pictures, schematics and examples.

      A good amount of projects to do, to build upon the knowledge learned.

        Such a prodigious teacher. Hope he makes a video course out of the entire series. Perhaps even mixing it up with mechanics,robotics.
        Addicted to his style of teaching.

          Haven't gotten to work on many projects yet nor to read the book fully, but I like the way the author writes and provides examples, tasks and responds to questions. I believe I will enjoy this book.

              The book is well written, just like the first version. It provides a good balance between theory and practice. The motto of the books is learning by exploration and there is not a better way to describe it.

                  Shortly after Make Electronics was released in print several years ago, I started my quest to begin understanding electronics. This book was a great first step. Now with "More", hopefully I'll reach another level. Mr.Platt does an outstanding job explaining concepts and the experiments serve to cement understanding.
