Well after reading through the whole of the book I think my previous evaluation was too high. The first part of the book was indeed quite great, however, the second part starting from three-phase circuits is not that good at all. I don't know whether it has to do with the dual-author essence of the book. The explanation is quite muddled and unclear, the example exercises are thrown out way too quickly without solid concepts as background, as if they expect the students to automatically understand new concepts in the process of doing exercises, which is barely possible and regularly frustrating. This issue is particularly obvious in the part of frequency response. I genuinely recommend Fundamentals of Electric Circuits by Alexander and Sadiku Fundamentals of Electric Circuits as an alternative. That book is very well-organized throughout. It doesn't just throw at you a bunch of stuffs without proper explanation, but instead tells them in a well-elaborated manner from shallow to deep. I struggled using this textbook in the later part of my course, but after I discovered that book I was able to understand things much better. Also there is a problem about way too many typos in the book, and what's worse is there is no official errata available.(Though if you Google you'll find an unofficial, but incomplete, one.) Sometimes you have to think it through when you meet some typos and it can be rather annoying/confusing. To have such a problem when the book already arrives in 9th edition is quite inexplicable.
Chapter 10, bottom of page 431, shows that an error exits in the 3rd example he tries to do in chapter 10 !The authors and publisher claim they have proof readers and why they did not catch this is beyond me !they now want over $250 for this book !email@example.com critic
This book is horrible written. I'm very sorry if this is a required boom for your class. This very book and very convoluted and confusing. I used this book for circuits one and I am now in circuits two and my circuits two teacher hates this book as much as we do so he doesn't use it.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. I ordered this book for for my circuit analysis class and found out this is a previous edition that they are marking as 9th edition and it clearly states on the cover that it is for international al use only. All of the problems in the back are different which is causing a head ache for me in my class for homework.
The book itself was fine, but let it be known that the paperback version is the same as the International version and that the practice problems are different than in the hardback version. (Some, just the numbers are switched, others are completely different or missing) If you're looking to save money on classes, buy the ebook of the hardback instead.
