4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps I can help November 21, 2000
Format:Paperback
This series contains thousands of schematics from a variety of sources. I'm quite sure that few, if any, were tested by the authors. However, based on the sources, most probably were tested by the originators. The explanations were sparse, and there were errors, some obvious. As such, these are probably not suitable for beginners. However, I find them to be very valuable, and I suspect that many experienced techs, engineers, hobbiests, and experimenters will as well. I often use part of one circuit as the seed of an idea for a circuit I am designing, with the end result bearing little resemblance to the original. These are filled with perhaps the most valuable of all resources - other people's ideas. I do wish the authors had been more careful to catch errors.

2.0 out of 5 stars FOrgive the Author he knows not what to do December 7, 1999
Format:Paperback
After puchasing volumes 1-6 as a group and testing some of the circuits I spent many hours correcting the mistakes and errors in these circuits. I threw the books into the closet and designed from scratch my own circuits, it took far less time and they work when I'm done. I wish you could hold the authors accountable for lost time I could hire a design staff larger than Microsoft.

2.0 out of 5 stars One Step Above Paperweight or Doorstop April 7, 2006
By PeterB.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I already had Vol 1. of this series from decades ago. I thought the author had maybe improved the content and accuracy of his books. Sadly mistaken. Schematic diagrams are routinely missing values for parts or lacking important information. I have been in electronics for several decades and I again am greatly disappointed with lack of quality. I don't know if the author received permission to reprint these circuits on the condition he left out part values or what. For the money your better off somewhere else. Large voume of circuits diminished by poor quality of information.

Several readers have criticized this book for its lack of working circuits. Let me say that I too have run up against this problem while lifting circuits from this book. However, I like to look at this book as a great compendium of circuit ideas that are going to need some modification if they are to work as advertised. I particularly liked the sections on game circuits, sound-effect circuits, and sound/voice activated circuits. I have built several of these, and I had to make some adjustments to each one. The point is that the basic ideas were all there along with pretty good descriptions for each circuit. The author also takes the time to introduce electronic parts with which you may not be familiar. If you are not already familiar with electronics, this is not the book for you, since familiarity with electronics and circuit design is assumed. However, for only $40 I think it is a great value for those with the correct background.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lot's of mistakes July 5, 2007
Format:Paperback
This book has lots of mistakes (many circuits don't work), the author kept many magazines through years and reprinted the circuits he found in them.

I ordered this book, Encyclopedia of Electronic Circuits, Volume 7 [Paperback], to keep around for circuit studies. I can use it for reference and to look up circuits and be relatively sure they have been tried and proven to work. This book is, extensive and has circuits, named and explained, over a thousand of them and yet it is a shortened version of the hardbound. It is an invaluable reference tool for me, and I am just a hobbyist electronics technician rather than a professional. It just about has any type of circuit you might want to make or study. Organized alphabetically and by circuit type, this collection includes something for each circuit, you would find when you are doing experiments or study of electronics. With each circuit you'll find a brief explanation of its operation and more information regarding adjustments or alignment. This is a valuable tool for my work bench.
