Editorial Reviews

From the Author

As I worked closely with my students in recent years, some complained that college electronics curriculum is too fast-paced; squeezing too much information into a short time period and not giving students the chance to use, review, and apply the materials learned.  My observations were confirmed when I started teaching an electronics and computer capstone class which is a senior level college class. This class was divided into two parts: 1) a hands-on projects which require students to build an electronic project from the ground up and, 2) reviewing all electronics materials the students have learned in the past two academic years.  Since this class is considered a review class, which covers basic DC, AC, digital, analog electronics, and computer network to communications systems, microcontroller, and programmable logic controller, students are expected to know the materials.  I soon realized that the majority of students do not have a good grasp on basic electronics knowledge and are unable to apply the theories to practical electronics applications and circuits. 
I also noticed that many electronic engineering textbooks focus mostly on theories without the latest practical applications and circuits. Many electronic reference guides are available as supplemental texts, but most focus on hands-on, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) electronics and lack intuitive, in-depth theory review. With such a build-up of frustration, I started planning and writing All-in-One Electronics Guide. It follows the entire college electronic engineering curricula in one package that is easy to read, with one chapter per course. It includes the latest technology and practical materials students will use in the real world. I leverage that with my four-and-a half years of teaching experience and seventeen years of professional electrical engineering experience in the semiconductor industry. I believe All-in-One Electronics Guide will be a perfect core textbook for electronics capstone classes as well as a great supplemental text for electronic and electrical engineering students at all levels, from freshman to senior.

A common misconception that I have noticed among students is that memorizing formulas and equations is all that you need to become an exceptional electrical engineer.  Although it would certainly be nice if all electronics products could be cranked out using some formulas and equations, in the real world this is impossible.  Good fundamental technical skills are needed to design electrical systems and products. Memorizing formulas is not very helpful if you don't know when and how to use them.  Being able to explain why you use the formulas is much more useful. All of this will become clearer in the book.

I last took an electronics course almost 20 years ago. This book was recommended as a quick refresher.

Sometimes you can't get away from the math and physics, and sometimes the math and physics gets in the way. This book tries to position itself in the middle. The material covers a wide range of topics but only delves moderately into each subject. The author took out a lot of background theory, math, and physics, only leaving the necessary information to get the job done.

This is perfect for those who, like me, once studied electronics at a university level and only need the basics now to quickly recall the various topics. I must admit that some of the topics required research from other sources as the book did not have the detail I needed. However, this book was a good starting point and reference.

I would venture to say this book is also useful as a supplement for new students studying practical or associate level electronics. Perhaps their textbook has too much much information and the student simply wants the "quick and dirty" of a particular subject.

I'd hesitate to recommend this book to those with no practical electronics experience as there is not enough theory or detail to paint the complete picture.

Very well written and an easy to understange guide for all of you electronics needs. The author has a clear way for explaining topics that most of my instructors were unable to explain easily and he does it in a way that someone with out any prior electronics experience can read and understand the subject.
