Because of my amateur radio hobby, I thought it would be a good idea to learn, and in many cases re-learn, basic electronics. To help remedy that, my wife bought me the RadioShack Electronics Learning Lab last Christmas.
The RadioShack Electronics Learning Lab comes with a board, various electronic components (resistors, capacitors, wires, LEDs, transistors, 555 chip, etc.), and two workbooks. The first workbook is on basic electronics, while the second workbook is on digital logic.
I've found by reading the theory, completing the circuits, and doing some variations of the circuits, I've really come to understand a lot of basic electronics.
I'm not even all the way through the second book and as of the date making this blog post I have done about 170+ circuits using the RadioShack Electronics Learning Lab.
