And I love taking Razavi's class!

There are other topics in the book too though, and they're all covered very well.

The homework problems in this book are abysmal.

I bought this book based on good reviews here, however, after finishing 10 chaps, I can say that:

1. This book is actually a compilation of UCLA microelectronics lecture notes and UCLA ECE students are giving them a 5 star rating here at Amazon.com, which is misleading...
2. Large amount of errors in examples, figures and text make some already abstract concepts even confusing.
3. Certain Chapter's pace is too slow(Chap 4&5). it will make you feel saturated with details and become overwhelmed very quickly.
4. Interpretation of some chapters can be very computational relying heavily on tricky mathematical deductions( serial approximation, limit approximation), it takes some time to get used to.
5. This book contains decent amount of practical design info that is valuable to medium level readers.

I wouldn't recommend this book for self-teaching, as using this error-laden 1st edition without guidelines from lecturer would be a grinding and nerve-wracking experience. A very tough book on a very tough subject.

5 stars for the Contents page, 3 stars for the rest of it. Editing is abysmal at best.

This is an excellent introductory book on analog circuit analysis and design, and as other Razavi's books, it is crystal clear, easy to follow, and has a lots of worked examples. However, as its preliminary version of this book (ISBN 047007292X), I still found many typos in this "official" release of this book, especially in the later chapters, even after I applied the errata provided by the publisher! These typos ruined the quality of this would-be-classic book. I think the author and publisher/editor should be more diligent on posting a new errata and fixing these errors in the new printings.

The homework problems in this book are abysmal. Either that, or my professor is deliberately choosing every problem which is poorly defined, over-constrained, or in some other way ambiguous and un-solvable based on the given information. If I hadn't already been a practicing EE for over 5 years and was just taking this course as an undergrad, I would probably be re-considering my choice of career due to the pain and problems encountered while trying to complete homework sets chosen from this book.

The text itself is reasonably clear and helpful, but do not expect to use the given problems to create functional homework sets. It's like somebody went through with a random number generator and changed all the numbers to create a new revision, never bothering to verify that the stated assumptions are still met.

This book may have the most awful problems I've ever seen in a text.

wow, the amount of typos that I discovered (let alone missed) in the first 4 chapters is staggering. Wouldn't recommend.

Used this book for a class. This book is pretty well written and really help you understand the materials better. This book is pretty well organized and very easy to follow, although I wish it has better examples
