    Can anyone advice me regarding learning electronics through self

    I'm a computer science graduate. I would like to learn electronics to
    play with robotics.

    Any resources available in net for self study?

    Get a copy of "The Art of Electronics" and its companion "Student Manual
    for The Art of Electronics." Read the main text, work through the
    exercises in the student manual.

    You'll need access to some parts and test equipment. You can use SPICE
    to simulate some things and as a pseudo test and measurement environment
    but you'll need to build some real circuits as well.

    Sometimes you really do need to take a class. I was fine at C
    programming (self taught from books, after taking a Pascal class) but
    I just couldn't understand C++ from books. Then I took a class. An
    analogy: C is like walking into a jewelry store, taking what you
    like, and leaving the cash on the counter. C++ is like walking into a
    jewelry store, asking the clerk for a ring, the clerk takes the ring
    out of the locked case, then you pay for it. Slower, less efficient,
    but more security. Ah! Now I get it.

    I thought the convention for charge was "Q".

    So true. I did the exact same thing when studying for my licensing
    exam (not in electronics).

    To learn electronics all you need is books the thing about it some people think they know it. You need to evaluate yourself do you have a logic mind? If so forget about spice and analizers is just like learning using a computer without knowing how it works. Spice will not tell you how good or how bad is the circuit is.
    My sugestion is read parts specs which are free and go from there.
