what is the best book for a beginner? Answered

i am ahigh school student and i am looking at getting into robotics as aprofession. i would like to start learning as much as i can now though.


Junkbots, Bugbots, and Bots on Wheels is a great book that uses BEAM technology. Basically, simple circuits that are a good start into Robotics.

if you buy kits off mouser or some other site then it generally comes with a book explaining all about how it works, and how to make stuff like it.

I would recommend The Robot Builder's Bonanza. Tis a timeless classic for robot hobbyists.

In addition, I cannot recommend highly enough getting involved in a FIRST robotics team, if there happens to be one in your area.
