It's connected like this:

Code: [Select]

| ----- ----- |
| ----- ----- |
| ----- ----- |
| ----- ----- |
| ----- ----- |
| ----- ----- |
| ----- ----- |


So you usually use one side for + and the other side for -, put IC's straddling the middle with no contacts, then use all the middle contacts to wire the ic's.[/url]

Yeah, the vertical strips (in Bigred's diagram) are the power buses.  I remember my first breadboard.  I pulled the foam off of the back to find out how they were hooked up.

i have the same one.  you can look at the bottom of the board and see the traces on the paper backing, which is basically what bigred just illustrated.

Wow... Breedboard... I've only been able to find Breadboard... ;)

It's been so long since I've used one... I usually solder things together to test nowadays. I'm too lazy to breadboard the circuit. heh

What??????!!!!!!!!!
To test things you don't solder!
You just put your ICs, resistors, capacitors, leds, etc, etc in those lil sockets, and you may have soldered something the wrong way and the circuit won't work or won't work as you expected.

Essentially, just remember that the long rows of holes on the sides of the board (power buses) are connected, and each row of 5 holes in the middle part are connected.
