    Would like to start building beginners practice circuits. Is there a kit out there that has a little bit of everything that any of you pros know about? Up until now I have mainly dealt with home and automotive electronics, now looking to expand to everything else. Any help appreciated. :)

    Hi 5thcorps.
    Welcome from me.
    Most new comers start out with bread boards, solderless boards with rows of small sockets designed to take component leads, these in turn are interconnected with jumpers, wire links, the process builds the circuit, then there are binding posts or sockets on the boards edge to take power input from a power supply source.

    The boards and components can be used over and over, as no solder is used, these boards are ideal for practice and beginners, and even more advanced " pro's" ha ha, no seriously they are excellent prototype tools.

    There are other prototype systems, but i dont know much about these, other members might have ideas on these.

    A good general electronics books, library etc if you dont want to splash out, the web for ideas and projects etc, i will leave a link below, its a favorite because its i think very useful, anyway have fun. :)

    Also a soft ware program, ive not long started using this, its free for home none commercial use.
