While the book assumes no previous knowledge of electronics you need to be able to manipulate basic formulae and understand some simple trigonometry in order to follow the numerical examples.
If you are attending a formal course of instruction and have access to an electronics laboratory, do make full use of it!
The approach is topic-based rather than syllabus-based and each major topic looks at a particular application of electronics.
