So rusty

Ok so I'm still waiting on all my new parts to arrive, in the meantime I'm thinking I should warm up the ol' grey matter engine and unrust my electronics knowledge. Can anyone recommend a tutorial site or ebook(s) (I used to have the '80s booklets from Radioshack on beginning electronics, can't find them though) that is geared more towards robotics? Primarily anything that would help with PICAXE or Arduino based microcontroller interfacing.

Help..

Is this schematic is correct? Im new to electronics.
