Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, Second Edition (Book & CD-ROM)

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Sadiku delivers again!, November 9, 2006
I've been familiar with the books from Sadiku on the subject of Electromagnetics (I didn't know about his Circuits book until recently). His writing style greatly facilitates the introduction to otherwise cumbersome topics. I'd highly recommend this volume if you want to learn about electric circuits. The book is very easy to read and the examples are very illustrative. Very good all around.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the all-inclusive EE reference the title suggests., November 9, 2006
I bought my first CRC Handbook (Mathematics) about a year ago and I was amazed about the quantity and quality of information in a single volume. I thought that all of the books in the series would be as comprehensive and I was certainly mistaken. This book is mainly suitable for Mechanical Engineers and NOT for EE's (as the title would have you believe). If you're dealing with certain mechanical aspects and need a quick reference then this book would be of help. If you're an EE looking for a one stop reference, look elsewhere because this is not the book you'd want to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on the subject., April 30, 2006
Most engineering books provide thorough mathematical details that are intended to provide depth on the subject matter. Often times, the fundamentals are drowned in calculations that may not be of relevance, or perhaps do not add any value to the course, especially if it's intended to be introductory.

This book does a great job in presenting Power Engineering concepts in a clear and concise fashion. I highly recommend this book if you're new to power systems, or if you wish to polish your knowledge of the fundamentals. Definitely a must have!

I haven't found a hardcover print yet, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to Mathematica, March 22, 2006
If you're never used Mathematica before, this book is a good starting point. The Mathematica book (which is the same as the electronic help files from Mathematica) is certainly a better reference as far as depth and content is concerned. Therefore, if you're looking for a reference that will give you information on the tools from the software, you're better off with the help files. If you want to learn how to use the software itself and make some sense out of the otherwise akward user interface, then this book is definitely for you.
