I just started using the Arduino using instructions from the Projects Booklet included in the Starter Kit.

This is a message to educate those starting that the Booklet is OUTDATED.

When trying to light your first LED the booklet displays a red/orange/black/gold resistor.

There is no red-orange-black gold resistor included in your shipment.

Alternatively there is a bluish 5 band resistor that can be used in place.


The other technicality I had to troubleshoot was that the book did not mention how to i Tools -> Port  - which is required before uploading your first code to the board.

I don't appreciate the misinformation. Maybe this topic will reach someone in need of help. Good luck.
