This 9th and 10th edition of this book can be found online for free. Full book! Also the solution manual to both books are on there as well.
Pretty much everyone in my class had downloaded the digital version and used that, as it was much more convenient than needing to buy and carry the book around.
I'm only posting this information because I know many students that struggle to pay for their classes/books and hopefully this helps save you some money!
Note: This is calculus-based circuit theory, basic calculus knowledge is assumed.
The good: This book is one of the most comprehensive treatments of fundamental circuit analysis that I have seen. Most chapters are fairly well-written. It is an excellent resource as a reference or as a review, and it is a book you will go back to again and again as you proceed in your studies. If you learn everything in this book, you will have a very good foundation in circuit theory.
The bad: In the first few chapters there are a few basics that are not well-covered or are out of order (knowledge is assumed of a subject introduced some pages later). If you are using this book for your first-ever exposure to circuit theory, you will benefit from reading a little basic circuit theory elsewhere before your class starts.
I bought it new and unfortunately it didnt come with the access code. Read the fine print and it said that there's a different version that's 40 dollars more that comes with the access code but they're out of stock.
No explanations, no examples that relate to the homework problems and, no useful techniques or approaches to problem solving!!!
This book is trying so hard to dazzle you with it's assumptions and leaps of mathematical prowess, you get lost in the BS!!! It condescends, frustrates, obfuscates, and downright insults you with the lack of direction, explanation or clarity, and misses the mark of teaching altogether!!!! You end up thinking you don't know material that you know that you already know!!
The authors of this text must have been locked away in some research lab somewhere, bored to death and came up with a brilliant idea!! They must have made a bet with each other to see who could come up with a way to present material in a more indirect and unapproachable way. Well guys, news flash you BOTH WON!
I can't say enough what a waste of time and energy this book has been for me. There are hours of my life I will never get back because of this book's deliberate effort to make it that way!!!
Avoid this book at all costs!! Talk to your department head and your professors, and let them read some of the other reviews!!!
Conclusion: Use this book if you have to (i.e. you have to do the homework problems and turn them in), but if you have the means, get a second book to study from, do problems from. Then sell this book back when you are done with it and keep the other book.
