About The Solution

Overview

Written for electronics engineering technology students taking their first course in circuit theory, this exceptional book has been hailed by users and reviewers alike as one of the best on the market. The 4th Edition provides updated coverage of standard circuit analysis topics in a remarkably easy-to-understand fashion, including fundamentals of DC and AC, methods of analysis, capacitance, inductance, magnetism, simple transients, transformers, Fourier series, and more. Essential concepts are complemented with hundreds of worked out examples designed to lead readers through the critical thinking processes required to solve problems, preparing them to reason their way through life-like situations expected to be encountered on the job.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • Computer simulations using the latest versions of Multisim and PSpice are integrated throughout via worked out examples, with step-by-step instructions and full-color screen captures that show how to construct circuits, connect meters, and test the operation of circuits
  • The use of calculator techniques in circuit analysis has been broadened, with calculator hints and the usage of the TI-86 incorporated into more chapters
  • More than 1,200 full color diagrams and photographs add clarity and aid visual learners, while nearly 1,600 practice problems, in-process learning checks, and end of chapter problems encourage students to become active learners
  • Calculus is introduced gradually, but material is presented in such a manner that non-calculus users can easily bypass the calculus material with no loss in continuity
  • The back-of-book CD contains interactive tutorials, mini-tutorials on circuit topics, a major new tutorial on the use of matrix methods in circuit analysis, MultiSim� files with nearly 100 pre-drawn MultiSim� circuit schematics for student use, and much more
  • Electronics into the Future, an interactive circuit analysis tool, is also included on the CD and is useful for both instructors and students, encompassing a range of multimedia presentations and interactive simulations
  • The back-of-book CD now features a movie presentation entitled OrCAD Capture and PSpice Beginner�s Tutorial which walks newcomers step-by-step through a PSpice computer simulation
