Thanks for the online resources guys

I decided to get just one of the books I mentioned, it being the DUMMIES book   8)  ;D

I prefer to read from paper vs the computer screen when I can. The book was only $15

I sugest yes that you buy as many books you can, but probably is a good idea to check the content online before you buy them if you want. I grew a extensive collection...  Because i like to read the informations from different sources. If i had to buy all the stuff i read, i would be living under the bridge today =)

Everytime I go to one of those websites I get more confused than ever. They have no direction. I need something that takes me from the start to the end. I have looked at countless websites with electrical information but I dont understand anything past DC12v automotive systems. Circuits and the components is what confuses me and I dont know where to start or which direction to take... They always want to throw everything in your face but its too much and its overwhelming.
Anyway I ordered up my book. I hope it helps me because I've got so many experiments in my head with all these parts but I have no idea how to "properly" hook them up.
