    I hope I have the correct group
    I would like to know if anyone has had experience with any home-study
    electronics courses
    I am not near any community colleges and am housebound at the moment
    and will be for some time due to illness but would like to learn
    electronics as I used to work--many years ago--as a test tech but my
    actual knowledge of the full spectrum of electronics is lacking

    I have looked into CIE but it seems a high cost altenative when I can
    buy or have most of the basic equipment needed to put circuits together

    Any recommendations or anyone with an unused set of course books they
    could let go for a reasonable price

    Oh, if anyone knows of any accreditated home study courses I would
    appreciate the info as well
    Thanks a lot

    Not quite what you're looking for (not a course offering) but one option
    is to buy a copy of "The Art of Electronics" (ISBN: 0521370957) along
    with the student manual (ISBN: 0521377099). They ain't cheap but, if
    you're a self-study type, well worth the cost.

    The CIE courses are pretty good. About the only thing better is a good
    quality community college (not ITT). The Art of electronics is not a good
    learning tool for basic electronics. It is more a supplement for those
    with or getting a good foundation (BSEE) in electronics.

    What's your objection to ITT?
