    So I switched major from psychology to electrical engineering mid
    junior year. Yeah I'm crazy but so what. I'm really into computers and
    higher level programming, so electronics have been confusing me a
    little.

    Can someone possibly help me out with a small application?
    I just want to use a 9volt battery to blink a LED. I have any combo of
    resistors, transistors etc to use. Any help would be appreciated. Just
    trying to start really basic.

    That sounds like homework-problem lingo.

    John has given you some links. I'd just like to add that one of the
    finest circuit designers around, Jim Williams, started life as a psych
    major (if I recall correctly). I have snipped and saved many of his
    circuits over the years, published in the major trade journals and
    circuit collections.

    Best regards, and good luck in your new career!
