It is good for students who want to start from basics and have strong calculus background. It explains concepts using calculus which is different from other books on this subject like Boylestad and Floyd. Practice problems are organised well and tests the knowledge of the student's understanding of the content but the textbook has answers for odd-numbered problems so it will be good to find a solutions manual for it.
I would also This is one of the good books on Electric circuits in the market. I would also like to add that this book is good enough for competitive exam preparation where students won't have time to go through two or three books but if the students are aspiring to understand this subject thoroughly then they should definitely look to other books to fill in the gaps that this book has.
It can be not so detailed sometimes and if you are looking for deeper understanding, while studying for college exams, then I would recommend that the student should look for other textbooks to get the questions answered.
No textbook can offer all the knowledge about a particular subject and every textbook expects certain level of knowledge from the student reading it. I believe this is an acceptable book on circuit analysis, especially to use as a reference or for review.
I feel like the pacing and example are not the best for learning the material for the first time, however. My professor is Charles K. Alexander, one of the authors of this book.
He said that they have written the book for different type of courses and it has been written in a way that instructors can use it in different ways to teach the fundamentals of Electric Circuits's topics. In short, the first half of the book is so clear and written in a good way with a lot of examples and solved problems in addition I used this book for Electric Circuit 1 and I am going to use it again in Electric Circuit 2.
In short, the first half of the book is so clear and written in a good way with a lot of examples and solved problems in addition to many and MANY practice problems at the end of each chapter. I think I will keep it in my library, at least for a while I will continue using it and if I found there is a need for change my review I will do that. I was told that this book would be the best reference I could find on circuit analysis.
Well, so far I couldn't find a book on this subject that fits my needs, but this one is certainly far away from it. And also far away from being the best reference on circuit analysis. I found the text so annoying, and there are so many mistakes on the text, on the examples, on the exercises Summarising, don't waste your time on it.
It is very didactic and an interesting option for autodidacts. Contains several illustrations and examples and there's a complete solutions manual on the internet. The con of the book is that it presents many results in circuit theory without any reasoning specially on the three-phase part at all. Feb 07, Anees Ahmed rated it really liked it. I read it as course book in my three courses and found it very easy and very very helpful in my understanding of electric circuits.
Nice book for your introduction to electric circuit. The book provide nice explanation, many useful example, and bunch of challenging problem to solve. Quite easy to understand even though English is not your first language.

Couldn't say I LIKED it, being selected as the textbook in class, though it still helped a lot in my understanding in electric circuit behaviors. Apr 10, Ali Saadi rated it really liked it.
This is the course textbook for the class I'm teaching this summer. Although I haven't really gone through it in detail, it's much better than other introductory circuits texts that I've seen. Nirbhay Gupta rated it it was amazing Jan 02, Hassan Bassam rated it liked it Jul 27, Jerald Mampolino rated it it was amazing Jul 03, Joy Ahmed rated it liked it Jan 16, Sakina Adenia rated it it was amazing Mar 29, Nabeel Asim rated it it was amazing Aug 25, Lucas Cavalini rated it it was amazing Jun 27, Prashant rated it it was amazing Nov 22, Syed Naqvi rated it it was amazing Mar 26, Abantika Bhuti rated it it was amazing Sep 22, Erfanelc rated it it was amazing Jun 11, Daud Krisna rated it it was amazing Oct 10, Jul Julinar rated it it was amazing Sep 19, Alex Ngullie rated it it was ok Apr 14, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
Readers also enjoyed. Goodreads is hiring! The other reason is that many of the practice problems within the chapters are overly difficult and leave you with a feeling of frustration and discouragement, rather than confidence that you understand the preceding material.
It would probably be fine as a classroom text where you have an instructor or TA to answer questions.
FEC is organized so that each section of text is followed by a worked-out example problem and then a practice problem with the answer provided.
About half of the practice problems are straightforward applications of the methods in the preceding text and the example problem. However, a third to a half of the practice problems require a technique different from the example problem, are more difficult than the practice problem, and sometimes provide an incorrect answer which is really unforgivable.
You should also consider getting a second textbook, such as Nilsson and Riedel. One exception: This is a classic book and when I found the kindle edition for such a reasonable price, I was very excited. My excitement was quenched very quickly when I found the formulas and non-photo diagrams to be fairly useless. The formatting is completely corrupted for essential parts of the book. Stick with the print version until they fix this one.
Coverage of elementary circuit theory is encyclopedic. For someone who needs a quick refresher here and there, this is great. Sections are relatively short without long chains of reasoning-easily digestible bites. You'll get most of the needed framework in the first four chapters which cover Kirchoff's Laws mesh or loop and nodal or junction analysis , superposition for linear circuits, source transformation, Thevenin and Norton theorems.
Later on in a.
Complex impedances take the place of resistances and everything goes the same. The linearity of a circuit will allow you to Fourier analyze an arbitrary input voltage into a sum of a. Topics nicely build on previous results. After the basics you can just about jump anywhere and get the gist of the discussion. Since the reviews for most of the other first Circuit Analysis books I could find were fairly uniform in their negative opinion on the understandability of those books, I was worried about this book.
But, since the reviews of the previous version were very good, I thought I'd give it a try. Basically, I'm very impressed with it. Since I'm working through the book on my own without any peers or professors available to clarify things, the book I use HAS to be readable. This one is. The authors clearly explain almost everything there are a few minor omissions of non-core material that the authors consider to be Intuitively Obvious to the Most Casual Observer i.
Within each section of each chapter, they immediately follow every concept with several Examples showing how to work with the material and Practice problems for the reader to do. So, if you don't immediately understand the theory, there are several applications available to help you along. At the end of the chapter, the book includes: These are broken up into sections so you know which ones require what material.
The odd ones are answered at the back of the book. In the Preface, the authors describe the book as: It is broadly divided into three parts. Part 1, consisting of Chapters 1 to 8, is devoted to dc circuits Part 2, which contains Chapter 9 to 14, deals with ac circuits Part 3, consisting of Chapters 15 to 19 is devoted to advanced techniques for network analysis A very important asset of this text is that ALL the mathematical equations and fundamentals of physics needed by the student are included in the text.
The only negatives I can find in the book are all minor.
