Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Helps scientists and students quickly understand the technologies, physics, and practical issues surrounding today's most important electronic instrumentation.With the increasing complexity of modern electronic instruments, beginners are faced with the difficult task of scanning volumes in order to find material that is relevant to their courses. This book's functional approach serves as a link between high-powered technology and fundamental physical principles. The book identifies physical principles essential to understanding the use of electronic instrumentation, and wherever possible, illustrates them with practical demonstrations.Scientists, researchers, engineers, and students of science.

Format: Textbook Binding
I bought this book with the hopes that it will be a quick read and a good reference for a working scientist. I took two quarters of "Electronics for Physicists" and I know this book leaves out many items covered in those courses. Further, as a working scientist in need of doing electronics, I find myself reaching for other books, since this one is not complete.
The book does lack examples that would allow the reader to build an intuition as to what some of the circuits do. Also lacks ample examples to do the analysis. The book leaves out the responses of such circuits. I can go in the lab and figure it out, but this takes additional time. I couldn't find any 'constructive' exercises that would allow a reader to construct. Perhaps a 'Lab book' that would compliment this one is in order.
The section on semi-conductor physics is well thought out, but this is also done in other books.
Overall, I would look to other electronic books to get started in the lab. Further, I don't feel this book would prepare the reader for any sort of GRE, PhD quals or electronics course exam. I'm giving it two stars since the section on semi-conductor physics is really good.
