Circuit Analysis--Theory & Practice (2nd Ed.)
Synopses & Reviews
The mathematical foundation and the practical application of circuit theory in this highly readable book will prove invaluable to students enrolled in electronics engineeringtechnology curriculum and professionals alike. This one-of-a-kind text provides comprehensive coverage of circuit analysis topics, including fundamentals of DC and AC circuits, methods of analysis, capacitance, inductance, magnetism, simple transients, and computer methods. Hundreds of step by step examples lead the user through the critical thinking processes required to solve problems. Two popular computer simulation packages, OrCAD PSpice Version 9 and Electronics Workbench are integrated throughout the book to support "what-if" situations. With the Online Companion, users can access a web site that contains RealAudio sound-clips that present more in-depth discussions of the most difficult topics covered in each chapter.
Book News Annotation:
A text for electronics students in introductory circuit analysis courses. Coverage includes fundamentals of ac and dc circuits, methods of analysis, capacitance, inductance, magnetic circuits, base transients, and Fourier analysis. Pedagogical features include historical vignettes, different types of problems, review questions, and worked examples. Appendices provide review and supplementary material, plus a short tutorial on OrCAD PSpice. This second edition offers new problems, including project problems, and a companion web site. Material on OrCAD PSpice and Electronics Workbench has been integrated throughout. The authors teach at Red River College, Canada.

Written for a first course in circuit analysis at the EET level, this updated edition provides user-friendly, easy-to-understand coverage of fundamental circuit analysis topics including standards of DC and AC, methods of analysis, capacitance, inductance, magnetism, simple transients, and more. Unique learning features enhance every chapter, such as "Putting it into Perspective" historical vignettes and "Putting it into Practice" applications. A hallmark of this edition is the inclusion of two popular computer application packages, MultiSIM and Cadence PSpice, both in their latest versions and integrated throughout to help user learn via hands-on simulation and to permit exploration of "what if?" type scenarios.
