where to learn electronics online?

hi every one i just want to ask you where can i learn electronics on internet before i enter the college i have only 8 months

I'm developing a site for that exact purpose. It's not completed yet, but you can check it out at http://www.learnelectronicsonline.com
If you have any questions, please let me know!
I can see your sight is a work in progress.
I use E over IxR in ohms law.
What are you planning for Power?

I wrote an e-book in PDF format for anyone to read for free. It is located on the library website called biblioboard.com here is the link to take you to the NONFICTION section that has about 33 books to choose from, including the one I wrote titled "Basic Electronics and Digital Voltmeters" It is completely FREE!

Perfect for beginners :)

I hate to answer your question with a question but, what do you want to do with electronics? Do you have a specific goal? Will taking electronic classes at college help you towards your goal? I'm currently attending a place called Black Mountain SOLE. It is a higher education alternative. It has a DIY learner program and also a Gap year program. If you have a specific goal, maybe something like BMSOLE is your best learning resource. If that is out of reach, the best thing you can do is to play. Learning comes from playing. Go out and experiment with electronics and hangout with people from your local makerspace if you have one. I started by buying small toys from a Goodwill and ripping them apart. If they are battery operated just lick your finger and touch the circuit. 12 volts DC will not hurt you. Hope this helps.

will i want to learn it because i want to be engineer i know lots about electronics like : resistors,capacitors,inductors,replays and i am already do this with toys when i was young but the problem is i know it;s function but how it works?
Get a good book on Circuit theory then. Learn how to analyse static circuits with the classical tools, learn about Kirchoff's laws, Thevenin equivalent, Millman Parallel generator theorem et al. From that, you can then move on to AC analysis, and finally, having discovered the joys of the Laplace transform, move into transient analysis.

All of these are topics you'll meet if you are studying electronics at a professional entry level.
Groan, your bringing back nightmares! :-) how I hated power electrics - IMHO Anything over 5 volts is wasted!

Many electronics people started with some kind of build kit - in my era the Phillips EE kit was very popular.

Circuit theory has nothing to do with power levels ! Its the equivalent of learning to read....
It was the multi phase maths I hated .

Your right though, the essential is to understand what is going on as in electronics you can't see it, weight it or touch it (not in any real sense anyway. You have to understand so you can visualise what is happening.
Cool so I quit college after being there doing loads of math and things that had nothing to do with electrical engineering. I finally forced myself into a 3rd year electronics class and made a deal with the administration to allow me to be in it without the prerequisite classes. That was my first time sitting in a class and talking about electronics. It was also my last. After spending a whole semester talking about nothing but transistors I left. Grab the text book that the classes use and read through it. You'll accomplish the same thing. Do you want to work as a engineer or do you want to be prototyping and building? Note that engineers spend most of their time behind a computer crunching numbers and figuring out efficiencies and things.

Complete drivel. When you've actually worked as a professional engineer, you might learn different. If you think maths has nothing to do with engineering, you made a wise decision not to be one.
Its impossible to over-emphasise the importance of a sound grasp of Circuit Theory. Master that alone in the next few months, and you'll be in a great place.

Here is one link on instructables where someone else asked a similar question. There are some good answers THERE at this link:

Many on line courses are run by the same colleges you might attend so go to the college you are thinking of attending and ask a counselor at the college. They will advise you on the best pre-course classes you can take on line that will help you with your course and may even apply to your final credit.

If that isn’t possible go to the college you plan to attend and get the reading list it should contain books like these five “Circuit Analysis Theory and Practice”, “Technical Mathematics”, “Floyds Electronic Devices”, “Fundamentals of digital Electronics” and “Basic Physics.”

Then get the books and a circuit simulator program to practice with is should be the same one in your course of study.

Then study every night for 6 hours a day 7 days a week before bead. (The same number of hours you would spend in class in three years)

Your study space should be quiet with no distractions.

If you are smart in 8 months you will learn more than you would with three years of college, if you don’t learn fast you will still be ahead of your class mates.

Now if you get stuck ask we like to help here at Instructables especially when we get marked best answer.

Many of us are teachers and engineers.

At a best guess if your starting from nothing you can't. Depends to what level. My RAF courses for example were 2 years+ long to learn the essentials. This has however been asked here before try a search. isn't it safe to assume that at college they will teach you what you need to know?

How about this site? It's where I learned electronics. Start by looking at the Related box to the right ---->

There are a lot of guides about different components and introductory projects. Look up the user randofo, he posted a series of component introductions along with a lot of great projects ranging in skill level.
