Microprocessors, being new, require courage and determination to investigate. A methodical approach to the study of microprocessors is essential. To understand microprocessors it is necessary to familiarize oneself with digital techniques. Then one can start to read some simple literature on microprocessors. Magazines should also be consulted; and to crown one's effort, one needs a microprocessor development kit. Jumping straight to manufacturers' manuals may be discouraging to a beginner because of their highly technical nature. After acquiring some confidence with the kit, one can choose a particular microprocessor and attempt a simple design. Some microprocessors are more complex than others, so starting with a simple one like the M6800 or the Intel 8080 is advised. Effort should continue in this manner.
