Format: Paperback
The is a superb book. My only complaint with this text is that it should have been included with Proakis' Digital Communication book in the first place. You will notice that 90% of the graphs and diagrams are straight from that text.
One of the winning ingredients is that all the Matlab code is written to be understood. Where some texts will write all code to be as optimal as possible, this book actually uses loops where Matlab array operations could have been used (which is not recommended in Matlab due to speed). It actually makes the code very readable and enjoyable. Surprisingly a few of the code snippets have left out the plot and stem commands? This is not too much of a hassle if you understand Matlab well, you can just generate that code yourself. Newcomers to Matlab will probably not be impressed. While the Matlab code is very simple and readable, it is still not for the beginner.
NOTE: This book will not teach you communication systems. This book is written like a Schaums text, where they briefly go over the key points, and then start programming them. If you only have this book and no other one to reference, you will be lost.
If you hate the Proakis Digital Communications text (as I do), you will love this one. This book has all the examples and fills in the missing points of that text. I find it interesting that this book has a co-author. I suspect that Salehi must influence the reign of reason in Proakis since this book is written so much clearer than Digital Communications.
In a nutshell, this book is worth its price. Very happy with this purchase.

Format: Paperback
another reviewer puts "must for begginer", but please notice it's for "a first-year grads" not for under-grads or sheer novices. i'm a plain novice, and i should say this book is not a tutorial. you need basic exposition on this field. i found "Lee and Miller:CDMA Systems Engineering Handbook" is helpful. the handbook is rather verbose and this MATLAB companion makes a good recapitulation of the handbook.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book for first-year graduate students. The different illustrative examples, with the MATLAB source code, makes learning, very simple and effective. The examples at the end of every chapter, reinforce what has been covered in the chapter. In short, a very useful text.

Format: Paperback
An excellent computer approach to almost all aspects of communications in Electrical Engineering, that clarifies topics which are difficult to approach just by dealing with theory.
