the task up in tiny
pieces and let you debug them.
The exception is experimenting kits. I got a really good one which was
I didn't understand all circuits (like the radio receiver) then, but i did
understand the function
of each component because it was very well described (water model) and
when using a diode the first time, they really used _ONLY_ the diode, and
just what was needed to see it work.
I think those kits are meant for a certain age, if one starts older they
may be too basic.
(Can't hurt, can it?)
You never know, maybe, if i'd gotten a chemistry kit back then and not an
electronics kit i might not be writing here.. not likely but you never
know, those things are powerful....
Thinking about it, i got something similar to a chemistry kit, and didn't
even remember at first, so hey, not all that life-deciding....
