My background is the very basics, and I mean, literally, I can add, sub,mul,div and a little of algebra (near, nothing) and that's it.

As you can see I need the best Total Beginner Book(s) that can allows me to read every basic (and maybe and not so basic) electronic text out there without knowledge 'gaps' of math.

I have some of these books, but the fact that I don't know what a Fourier series is (mentioned in some electronic book I own) is what prompts me to fill the gap first before going on that journey, so what I'm asking is a chronological order of books for this, thanks.

    $\begingroup$ What kinds of "electronics"-related things are you trying to learn? Since you mention Fourier analysis, you're presumably looking into some kind of signal processing. $\endgroup$ – Omnomnomnom Jul 16 '15 at 12:11
  • $\begingroup$ In order to learn about Fourier series, I'd say that the bare minimum you need is the basics of differential/integral calculus. Any understanding of linear algebra and complex analysis (or the complex numbers in general) will help immensely, but is not strictly necessary. $\endgroup$ – Omnomnomnom Jul 16 '15 at 12:13

    $\begingroup$ I would recommend that you also try posting this question on the electrical engineering SE site and/or the DSP SE site $\endgroup$ – Omnomnomnom Jul 16 '15 at 12:15
  • $\begingroup$ @Omnomnomnom basically everything related to mosfets. $\endgroup$ – user254911 Jul 16 '15 at 16:44
  • $\begingroup$ As in how to use them in logical circuits, or the physics behind how they work, or everything? Anyway, it doesn't seem like you'll be needing Fourier analysis afterall, or much math for that matter $\endgroup$ – Omnomnomnom Jul 16 '15 at 16:52
