Soldering Is Easy was a great starter, and now here’s a sequel: SMT Soldering – It’s Easier Than You Think. Greg Peek and Dave Roberts put together a great little comic book that teaches the art of soldering tiny SMT components. After reading it, you will be ready to tackle chip resistors, SOT-23′s, and SOIC’s with confidence. (You might also like to take a look at Skywired’s own tutorial on soldering SMT ICs.)
