Theory must be studied once and referred to, again and again as you do practicals. One is by building DIY projects and then modifying them. Also Repair of equipment, troubleshooting, testing and calibrating. Then you know how components behave and real life limitations. Now design and engineer a product and test it at customer site. do a pilot production and test with more clients. Now you will learn to think based on practical applications.
This invention lead to modern electronics, computers and internet look at this page, Transistor Photo.
A picture of the first transistor ever assembled, invented in Bell Labs in 1947. It was called a point contact transistor because amplification or transistor action occurred when two pointed metal contacts were pressed onto the surface of the semiconductor material.
The digital circuits section has been updated, most are in the pdf format. Broken links removed or changed..
Digital Circuits - These circuits are based on CD40xx Chips and other. You can use 74HCT or any other series that is available. use one family for a particular project. These were used nearly two decades ago. Use it for learning, glue logic or to interface your uC designs to external devices.
Do not make only Logic based designs like some below. It would be better to use a uC, CPLD or FPGA if you are building a complex gadget Basic Digital Circuits
The EE Resource Sites has been updated. These lists are now over a decade old. Many Broken Links have been removed. Some Resources that were listed have moved to the blogs.

Electronics 1 - Hobby or DIY Electronics and Electronic Engineering Design.
Electronics Hobby or DIY Electronics and Electronic Engineering Design go hand in hand. Many inventions, discoveries and improvements in this technology has been done by Non-Engineers who acquired skills and built firms that created many positions for engineers to work in....
Ham Radio Enthusiasts improved the Communication Awareness and Science of RF Circuits. Now Communication Systems are built on Embedded Systems. In every niche of electronics, Microcontrollers, SoC and DSPs have become indispensable.
Understanding the behavior of Electronic Components. Learning the usage of Mechanical Tools and Equipment to build or manufacture Electronic Products or Prototypes. Mastering the use of the Test Bench and Test Instruments like the Scope and DMM. All these constitute the total skill set in electronics.
