Format: Hardcover
What a terrific introduction to electronics! The author explains electricity, the relevant formulae, the basic physics of electricity, electromagnetism and a lot more. The text requires no more than algebra and right angle trigonometry. I find the text clear, engaging, and quite understandable even without an instructor to help me.

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).

After a long search, I used this textbook twice to teach a 1-semester Analog Electronics course at the soph/jr level. I liked this text becasue it is VERY clear for students who find it very readable and organized in a logical sequence. If they miss a lecture, no problem, the book covers the material fantastically. It also has great pedagogical features which help students maintain a high-level view of electronics while learning details. And it combines typical electronics with practical information, applications, and debugging strategies.

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.

The 8th addition has the chapters 16-22, but this book stops at 15. So if you need Diode application and other "Active" circuit chapters, you will have to get the 8th addition.

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.
