Someone here once asked the same question and I took advantage of the answer, which sent me to download the modules in the US Navy electronics course (PDF files). http://www.tech-systems-labs.com/navy.htm There are 4,400 pages of text. You can skip over a lot of the math. There are also a number of tutorials on-line. Just search under electronics. Often one site will have several links to various others. A number of years ago I read Understanding Electronics by G. Randy Sloane and found it very helpful, although there were a couple of mistakes in it.

Go to radio shack and buy an electronics learning lab. around 30-40 bucks. It's well worth it you'll love it. By the time you complete all the projects you'll be a "pro".
