What do I need to get started in electronics?
I want to get started in electronics (for fun right now, when I'm eighteen I plan on studying computers and things like that because I would like computer repair and such to be my career) However, I know very, very little about electronics right now. I've already learned quite a bit about the more basic things just from reading some technology instructables on this site (thanks!) but to actually do the projects (mostly things involving LEDs, bots, and things like that) what types of tools do I need to have on hand? I figure I need a soldering iron, but otherwise I'm pretty clueless as to how to get started here. I learn A LOT better when things are hands on rather than reading from books so I think the projects on this site would be a good starting point. There will be plenty of time later for me to get more serious in this.
So other than a soldering iron and wires, what other things would be good for me to have on hand to get started with electronics?
