Hi guys, I bought an Uno to learn about electronics and I played it safe by buying a starter kit. It now seems like it was a pretty pathetic starter kit as resistors seem really important and it didn't contain any (I really know nothing about electrics). I'm going to buy an assortment kit and I got it down to 0.25 watt E6 resistors but I'm not sure about tolerances. I'm looking at one of these two: http://cpc.farnell.com/_/cfr0w4je006kil/resistor-kit-0-25w-5-e6/dp/RE03404
I'm guessing higher tolerances are better for me but could someone please set me straight before I waste £20. And while I'm at it is there anything else I could do with (I'm guessing I should t be bothering with capacitors or anything yet). Also I work as an IT Technician and I get my hands on lots of broken old bits, is there anything that's particularly juicy that I should look out for?
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
