How to Read a Schematic

How to read a schematic, follow electronics circuit drawings to make actual circuits from them. This starts with the schematic for a very simple circuit with just some batteries, resistor, switch and an LED. Then it talks about Earth ground and chassis ground. Finally it moves on to a crystal radio amplifier schematic and adds a diode, potentiometer and capacitors.

For more electronics symbols, see my webpage here (more coming soon):
