for personal reasons I can't go to the university and i would like learn a lot of electronics oriented to computers, I am not new in the software programming but in all related with the hardware yes, totally new. I searched here to know about recommendations of books of this kind and I have founded a lot with very good opinions in Amazon, but I don't know if is good idea start reading books without a order. Can somebody tell me all the books of the first year of university's electrical engineer course? I have a lot of time to study it. And one more thing is, my level of maths is very bad, a lot of years without study maths... Another book to have good level of maths?

A lot of thanks, sorry if I ask a lot of things, only I don't know which is the best way to start.

Thanks all, have a good day.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

    \$\begingroup\$ The prestigious MIT have now made most of their courses available free online. The documents cover any required texts and other material. Start here \$\endgroup\$ – Russell McMahon Jul 25 '17 at 17:42

There is no answer to that question.

Each university has their own preferred books, often biased by some alumni connection to the author.

The one we used which is considered by many to be the "bible" of EE is

Hughes Electrical and Electronic Technology

As for math. There are numerous teach yourself math books out there. Go visit a good book shop or major library and find the one that personally suits you best.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks Trevor!! I think with that PDF will be enough for now :) Very very good quality that PDF, thanks. \$\endgroup\$ – mingett Jul 25 '17 at 14:43
  • \$\begingroup\$ @mingett you are welcome. As I said it is the basics of EE, a lot of it you will probably never need but it's there if and when you do. If you are more interested in specifics of circuit and logic design there are other books that are more tailored in detail to those areas, e.g. the book Dirk suggests. If you are serious about using this stuff, you may want to invest in a hardcopy. I still have and occasionally use mine from 40 years ago.. though it's only edition 4 the basics never change. \$\endgroup\$ – Trevor_G Jul 25 '17 at 14:46

Just get the latest edition of Art of Electronics by Horwitz and Hill. I'm a professional EE and that is pretty much all I need on a day to day basis. More specialized info one can find on the Net to supplement it.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Dirk what field of EE do you work in? \$\endgroup\$ – hacker804 Jul 25 '17 at 16:22
  • \$\begingroup\$ @hacker804 I do a bit of everything, except power and RF. The bulk of the work is microcontrollers (mostly 32 bit) and analog interface, including precision temperature measurements (sub milliKelvin resolution). Then throw in firmware to drive it all and some physics research, latterly on measurements of ultrasound pulse propagation in gases. \$\endgroup\$ – Dirk Bruere Jul 26 '17 at 8:24
