This book has been written to support a one-semester laboratory course in electronics that is taught at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Physics majors typically take this course during the second semester of their sophomore year. The course as taught at CMU consists of two one-hour lectures and two three-hour labs per week. Students taking this course are expected to have completed three semesters of introductory physics courses. This includes an introduction to modern physics as well as a first course on mathematical methods in physics. While, in principle, this course should be accessible to students after completing one year of study, the additional math from the sophomore level courses helps with understanding of the math used in electronics---in particular complex numbers. I have tried to write the book as a self-contained package with sufficient review of this math that it should be accessible; however, some of the optional topics may not be appropriate.
