Background: I've used this text for 5 years now, beginning with the 7th Ed, and now probably moving to the 9th. Before my teaching career I was a circuit designer for HP for about 12 years. I teach at a community college, and we use this text because most of the universities to which my students transfer use it. I've never had a student complain about this text, either personally or in a student evaluation.The good:I think the text is well-written, the explanations are clear and concise and at exactly the level that sophomore EE/ECE students need. The examples are well-chosen and sufficient in number to effectively present the fundamental concepts.What could be improved:1. More general problems are needed that require the student to solve the circuits using generic components (R, L, C) instead of giving numeric values for all components. The purely numeric approach leads to a "sea of numbers" plug-and-chug solution that has little meaning to the student and even less value in terms of understanding circuit behaviour. Students need to get used to working their solutions into the standard algebraic forms that provide insight into the behaviour of the circut. (I have designed my labs to make up for this.)2. The order of the topics assumes the student is taking their first course in differential equations concurrently, and so postpones the introduction of the LaPlace transform until near the end of the semester. Too much time is spent solving 1st and 2nd order linear, constant coefficient ODEs by methods engineers will never use again. This makes LaPlace methods look like an afterthought, when in fact it is how EEs actually work in the field.All in all, I view this book as a very positive text, and will probably continue to use it.
