Which components to order? Answered

Hey Guys,

As many of you may know I just started electronics (reason for annoying question) and I was ordering stuff online and I couldn't choose. (Crappy grammar in previous sentence) So I  was wondering if you guys could help me by telling me what components I would need fo some average projects like LED's, resistors, transistors etc. I would really appreciate it if you could help.

Thanks in advance

(Oh and once again sorry for the grammar I don't know whats wrong with me atm)

I really started out in electronics with a 200-in-one kit with a breadboard in the center, a large set of many components, and 2 books with 200 analog and digital circuits respectively, and I got it for Xmas! I learned a lot about practical electronics that way, and did a lot of solo projects.

My very first circuit from trial and error was (other than basic series and parelell circuits) was a relaxation oscillator made with a buzzer, a large electrolytic cap, and a resistor. the capacitor would charge slowly, until the voltage was high enough to make the buzzer chirps for a spit second, then the capacitor dies, and the process repeats.

This is a fun little kit to get your started.

Gives you a bread board and some of the more common components to play with. As well as a project book to show you some basics and get you familiar with the components. But there are plenty of similar kits on the market that are probably a better value and provide a larger range of components.
