    Hey every body,
    I am looking for a list of everything I should buy to start in this hobby.
    I have messed with electronics very little but, am getting much more interested lately. Aside from a soldering Iron and solder removing tool, what should be included in a beginners kit.

    The Idea is that I would like to have almost every component I could need for any typical circuit. Locally the only place to purchase resistors and integrated circuits and stuff like that is Radio shack and their prices are really high compared to some of the online dealers. So I want to purchase a bunch of stuff on one order and save on shipping. Then as projects come along if there is a piece here or there that I need to purchase locally it won't be so bad. If there is a list like this that already exist please let me know otherwise I'll start my list please feel free to add to it.
    Thank you,
    ΩΩango ΩΩatto

    10- 555 timer
    10- 8 pin sockets
    assortment of general purpose PC board
    5- 1k ohm potentiometers

    That is exactly what I was looking for. Do you think there is anything that should be added to it?

    Hello,

    It depends on what you want to do.
    If you want to play with opamps, you will need some opamps.
    If you want to play with digital circuits, you will need some digital chips.
    If you want to play with RF related things, you will need other stuff again.

    Here is the electronics page from the EDUCYPEDIA with a lot of information in all directions.
