Wow, they really changed the rules, didn't they? Guess I'll have a lot of new things to study (like what an op amp is)!

3.c.xiii. and 3.c.xiv. seem to directly contradict 3.d.'s prohibition on asking about semiconductors and nonlinear components. I assume 3.c. takes precedence over 3.d.

Yes, that's the only way that would make sense. 3.d. was the rule from previous years. I assume they just carried it over to this year without specifying that there were exceptions.

Opinions expressed on this site are not official; the only place for official rules changes and FAQs is soinc.org.

Is there a specific book on this? I was thinking of a physics textbook but I'm not sure.
For now, I'm just reading Wikipedia articles.

Alright, I'm new to this event and have absolutely no idea where to start. If anyone knows any sources that would be useful to me please let me know :D

Start with the wiki and work your way up from there

I would recommend the textbook I posted to start with actually. It's super helpful! (And someone, e.g. me, should probably get around to updating the wiki.)
