This review is from: Introductory Circuit Analysis (Hardcover)
I purchased a used copy of the 8th edition for reference purposes.
In the chapters on time varying, v(t), i(t), stored energy, capacitance, inductors, transformers, etc, you will find the calculus used with step-by-step solutions.
In reference to complex numbers, I thought most students would have taken math that covered the subject prior to taking EE courses. At the University of Minnesota students are required to have at least completed 3rd quarter calculus prior to taking any EE couses.
I wish I had this book when I was enrolled in EE courses. What we had required math in much greater depth than the Boylestad books.
I purchased boylestad's book for reference 20 years ago and loved it. Unfortunately someone(I will say borrowed here) borrowed it and it was never returned. I was never able to locate the same edition so I purchased this edition. And it is outstanding.
I think that the book is very clear in explaining circuit analysis concepts. Much more so than the EE books we had which were very math intensive.
