    Thanks in advance.

    I'm looking for places on the net that sell data books about
    electronic parts.
    Also, is there any recommended data book for electronic newbie?
  2. Save the trees, use Google. It's a paperless electronic world.
    Not many manufacturers print data books any more, it's just not
    An old TTL data book doesn't go astray, nor does say a transistor
    substituion guide if you need that sort of thing. You should still be
    able to buy the odd data book at your local electronics store.
    Old printed app notes can be worth having as well.

  3. Hard-copy data books are getting to be very rare. Most electronics
    manufacturers have all their data sheets, selection guides, etc.
    available on-line. Often they will also have catalogs in .pdf format.
