Where should I start on this website and with electronics in general?


I'm very new to electronics and never studied it at school. But now in my life I want to build a few things like mixers, amps, etc.

Are there a set of tutorials for CircuitLab that will take me from the very basics of electronics and CircuitLab to intermediate and advanced levels? Something that is set out in a step-by-step fashion?

Hello and welcome! The way I started some sixty years ago was to take a monthly diy magazine, read everything, and build whatever I felt capable of constructing. Visit a major newsagent/bookstore and browse the shelves to find a publication which meets your taste. Many mags run a series of articles for newbies dealing with types of components, basic theory and constuctional tips. Enjpy!

PS - this is just one of the mags available, they do beginner series and they are good on audio. http://www.epemag3.com/features.html
