I would like to begin getting started with some minor electrical engineering.
Right now, I don't have any tools besides pencil, paper, and a good calculator - but when I start building things, does anyone recommend any particular tools? I don't need the best, and would rather not spend too much (this will be a hobby, at least at first) but I don't want radio-shack level equipment :)
I know the basics of soldering/desoldering (and indeed have done some SMD work in training once) and have access to a cheap supplier of one-off prototype boards (no layers, two-sided, solder/silk masking included, drilling, etc)
Right now I'm going through the "Lessons in Electric Circuits"  to give me a refresher (it's been several years since my high-school physics and calculus classes, and a year or so from my Finite math class)
Do any of you recommend any other resources? -
