    I have a number of projects I'd like to undertake involving
    microcontrollers. The problem is that my hardware training was as a tech
    over 20 years ago, so no training in circuit design. The logic is easy
    enough it's just when when I look at schematics for various circuits there
    are a bunch of resistors and capacitors there and I don't know what they
    are for.

    Anyway what I need is a book about circuit design that will enable me to
    figure out when I should but them in my circuits and what values to use.

    Can somebody recommend one?

    PIC programming in C - Gardner - 1998

    The Quintessential PIC Microcontroller - Katzen - 2000

    The PIC Microcontroller Book - N. Matic (2000)

    Not recommended but take a look.

    Go to your local Radio Shack and look over their selection of Forrest Mimms
    booklets. I believe they still sell them.

    AoE is quite dated with regards to microcontrollers.

    It is, of course, excellent in general.
