Simple. Digital electronics implement logic and for the most part
you can ignore any analog effects within reason (I don't care about
rise time when I'm concerned with the correct logic, for instance.)
Start out by learning programming, then have someone teach you
digital electronics reasonably competently.
Then have someone awful try to teach you analog electronics from a
crappy book using antiquated terminology. (When was the last time
you heard someone refer to a capacitor as a condenser?)
Further, make sure that you limit meaningful lab time or give lab
assignments that only embody trivial analog and digital electronics.
You have a good handle on boolean logic and digital circuitry but
don't know f*ck all when it comes to analog crap.
Welcome to the digital option for the Electical Engineer curricula at
the University of Delaware from 1982-1986.
I didn't realize how ripped off I was at the time until I came to the
University of Utah in 1988 and learned that the undergraduate CS
students were building more digital hardware in 1 year than we had
built in 4...
