When I took my electronics class I completely hated Sedra and Smith during the first half of the semester. As things began to make sense and my time playing at the lab increased I finally understood how awesome the book is.

If it's the Sedra and Smith book I'm thinking about, probably because it's an integrated circuits book, which would be totally inappropriate for a beginner.

Here is a link to a pretty thorough course in beginning analog circuits. I don't know how much you would get out of it seeing as you would probably know most of it from being a physicist, but it's there for reference. The next step up would be this book by Sedra and Smith. It will start off with Thevenin and Norton equivalents and work up from there. The book is very large and contains damn near everything you need to know about analog circuits (even has a chapter on semi-conductor physics :)). If you have any interest in digital circuit logic you can go here. Also, I think I see an Arduino in the article picture. There is plenty of documentation on their website. If you want to know more about microprocessors in general, Amazon has a long list of books that could probably suit your needs. Hope that helps! :)

Sedra/Smith Microelectronics

You will learn more about electronics than you will ever need to know, in one book :)

This is a "must have". It's not a textbook, but rather a manual put together by a large design company in Germany. Since it doesn't come from a textbook publisher the book is very cheap compared to most books (I think you can find cheap new copies on eBay):

When I took that class we used the same book, which I found to be one of the better ones I've used.

A lot of people seem to recommend the Sedra book

You have to learn the concepts of digital signal processing. There are alot of really good books out there on amazon. You can choose to implement these algorithms in many ways, in C++ using various audio libraries, in CUDA/OCL on a GPU or even in hardware level via Verilog/VHDL on an FPGA.

If you want to deal with raw circuitry, you need to learn analog signal processing, you might have to learn the concept of analog electronics. BJT's/OpAmplifiers/ClassA/AB/D etc. I recommend this book, it is fantastic.

I recommend reading up the concepts of DSP first. Discrete Fourier Transforms, frequency manipulation such as low/high/band pass filtering. All the various concepts basically. This coursera site shows most important concepts.

Also, unless you are working on an FPGA, there is not much point testing/starting out on an embedded system. Try it out on your PC/Mac first

I always think of a bjt as a diode that blocks in both directions unless a voltage (and since it's a diode a little current must move) is applied to the base. Cutoff means no current flows, so you can remove voltage at the base to prevent current flowing from the collector to the emitter. Breakdown is what happens when you put soooo much voltage into something you literally break it. (Eg put too much voltage across a diode and it will leak current even though it should theoretically stop it)

There is a funny area used for amplification that is really complex where I usually just pull the bjt equations from Sedra/smith's and treat it like a math problem

Sedra and Smith is a great textbook if that is not what you are using already.

What part of Electronics I was the most troublesome? Large signal analysis? Small signal analysis?

I am a current EE student right now and saw you ask in another comment about book recommendations so I thought I would throw a few in:
