    I am just beginning my study of electric circuits and circuit analysis.

    I have perused this site for some time ( before joining ).

    I want to combine my circuit analysis learning/classes with:
    Building and testing the circuits on breadboards/protoboards, and
    Using PSpice ( or similar ) to simulate these same circuits

    I was reading over the beginning worksheets for DC circuits and the writer/author stated that this was a good way to begin.

    However, I do not see a place where there are instructions/videos/tutorials for building simple circuits like one would find in a circuits analysis class.

    Note: I am talking of simple DC circuits right now.

    Does anyone know of a good resource for building simple circuits on breadboards so that I can learn the baby steps ??

    I second Bertus' recommendation -- the labs are quite good. I strongly recommend that a person new to this stuff do all the labs, as that practical experience cannot be taught any other way. If you don't get the experimental experience by actually building things, you'll be a theoretician sitting around in your ivory tower and will be befuddled by the first easy practical task that comes your way. :p
