Review – 30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius PDF

Personally, I like this book. It may not be completely beginner level as it appears to assume some knowledge of C, but that has not been a problem for me as I have previous C and Objective C programming experience. It could be an issue for those who have no previous experience, however. Dr. Monk does not always tackle the problems he presents as I would have (e.g., he uses a series of “else if” statements where I would have used a “switch” statement on one project), but I think he overall gets the concepts across well.

The book covers beginning to intermediate Arduino concepts well by using fun and interesting projects. 30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius

Appears well written and I have not picked up on any errata as of yet, but am doing a read through first before I do any of the projects on my Uno. All of the projects appear up to date with respect to the most current Arduino IDE, but will give more feedback when I’ve run several of the projects firsthand.
