Format: Hardcover
William Kleitz takes a more practical approach which will benefit you now and prepare you better for the future, if you prefer digital over analog. Although I was forced to use Floyd's edition in college, Kleitz goes much deeper in detail for designing digital circuits taking small steps to learning, which then all come together as one. Generally speaking, all logic tables, using simple gates, their behavior appears static in all text books which are currently published. However, Kleitz reveals very interesting concepts and ideas, which appealed my interest in reading his book.
My experience with troubleshooting digital circuits leads me to believe that this a better overall text, no question about it. His remarkable approach, and style of teaching should be noted by all, but with most digital textbooks, most of them don't go beyond simple logic predictions, and material that never leaves the classroom floor.If your seeking advanced digital concepts with basic fundamentals included, then your best bet, is the text I'm reviewing here today by William Kleitz.

Format: Hardcover
There are several larger, hard cover text books regarding digital electronics that I like. Most of them are Prentice Hall books. You can stick with used editions printed after 2003 and get a fine piece of work for just a few dollars (formerly very expensice college texts) that is current enough for learning the core topics. This is one of the four or so that I put near the top of my list. Excellent use of color illustrations, real-life examples, etc. There might be two other books on this topic that I like better, but this is one of the classics.
