Ok, they're not ebooks but have you looked at these tutorials?

http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage

http://www.adafruit.com/tutorials


yup i read that also. some are summary.. and i need more examples of programming(like do-while/if/for statement examples) to prepare my test in school.

Well I don't know what your test will cover, but my advice on how to learn this stuff is first to work through those tutorials (ie entering and running the code, not just reading it).

Then think of some ways of combining some of those tutorial snippets into some simple projects. I for example remember I mounted an LDR on the end of a servo horn. Then I combined the LDR example code with the servo example and had a servo that ran back and forth looking for light; when the LDR moved into some light it stopped. Then when I turned the light off, it started up again.

The tutorials and the reference surely explain all of the functionality; the trick is knowing how to combine the elements into a working program. That comes with solving some real-world problems (even if they are trivial to start with).

I can't help wondering why your school hasn't provided sufficient text or links?

Terry thanks for the link to the notebook. I had downloaded that before and lost it, and couldn't find a link.

I see it's a few years old- do you know off the top of your head if there are any major differences between the book and 2012 reality on a Uno R3 please?

I would like to update the "arduino programming notebook" by brian w. evans  but I can not find an email address for him..

Anyone know how to contact him??

The programming shown is not different for R3 boards.
