    I already finished my introduction to electronics course. I know how to deal with truth table and logic gates.

    I have an idea for a new project, receive a signal over WIFI or Bluetooth as input, and output electrical signal and other outputs over wifi or bluetooth.

    My problem is how to setup the logic gate diagram with a radio receiver and transfer this diagram to real components like resistors, capacitors, leds and so on.

    If there is any useful e-book please send me the reference.

    Thank you

    Doing that with only TTL or CMOS logic is going to be extremely difficult and complex. When I see WIFI or Bluetooth, I automatically recommend using a microcontroller. I hate to say it, but I don't think you'll be able to do that with just logic gates and discrete components.

    Sorry, there is a big gap between what you have learned so far and what you are attempting to do.

    To received signal over WiFi or Bluetooth you need a WiFi or Bluetooth transceiver.
    The data received is in the form of packets. You need a microcontroller in order to interpret the packets and extract the information. This cannot be done simply with resistors, capacitors, LEDs, etc.
