If you think you really want to get good at electronics, invest in a breadboard. I'm not claiming to be really good, but the breadboard at least taught me a bit about how components work together by letting me build a full circuit in five minutes. And learn to solder, if you haven't already.

Havent been to this post in a while sry! it's just how did you learn to use the breadboard? i don't understand how.

Wait a minute, Breadboards for beginners is in your favourites, how could it be one of your favorite instructables but you not have read it?

because i do not want a solderless breadboard, i already have one that requires me to solder

If you're going to experiment in electronics, it doesn't do to solder together the circuit. That makes changes very difficult. With a solderless breadboard, you can get the circuit right and then build it on a PC board.

. I'm with LV on this one - a breadboard is the way to go until you get everything just right. Then you can hardwire it. . And a variable power supply is a good investment, too. Get one with adjustable current limiting and you will save a lot of money on fuses. Get a "dual-tracking" (two PSs in one box, where B can be set to track A) model if you can afford it.

Read This and do ALL of the experiments/examples. The parts are very inexpensive.

Once your done with that, find and acquire as many text books on electronics and repeat. Don't forget that if you don't do the experiments/examples you won't learn a thing.
