Each chapter begins with an outline of what is going to be discussed, chapter objectives, key terms, application assignment, web materials, and an introduction. The text uses color very well, is richly illustrated, and is mindful of the student learning process. I like the way the author introduces a point, poses a problem that he then solves, and then asks you a similar problem to work on your own (with the answer provided at the end of the chapter). At the end of each chapter there is a bullet point summary, key terms with definitions, a self-test to check your understanding, and a section by section set of basic problems.
The text has 21 chapters divided into three parts. Part 1 discusses DC circuits (quantities & units, voltage - current & resistance, Ohm's Law - Energy & Power, Series Circuits, Parallel Circuits, Series Parallel Circuits, Magnetism & Electromagnetism). Part 2 discusses AC Circuits (Introduction to Alternating Current & Voltage, Capacitors, RC Circuits, Inductors, RL Circuits, RCLS Circuits & Resonance, Transformers, Time Response & Reactive Circuits). Part 3 discusses Devices (Diodes & Applications, Transistors & Applications, the Operational Amplifier, Basic Op-Amp Circuits, Special Purpose Op-Amp Circuits, Measurement - Conversion & Control).Read more ›
Unfortunately, this book uses electron flow for current rather than conventional current flow. While this makes some sense, it also leads to lots of confusion when using any outside materials for the class. Secondly, it spends a lot of time on fairly simple stuff which the students should have already learned in Intro Physics so we did not really get into new subjects until around page 300!
That being said, I strongly recommend using this book to learn electronics on your own or as a text for students who may not have had Physics before.
I tried to get a cheap alternative to 8th addition and to my surprise I have to return it and pick up the newer addition.
Great quility and timing!!!! Would make other purchases from seller, as a buyer I am well pleased with the product and the seller !!!!
I am well pleased......
