The great thing about this book is that it covers several useful (yet simple) applications, so it combined with a more rigourous and in depth book such as Sedra & Smith "Microelectronic circuits" which lacks applications but covers most of the technical and physical aspects needed to know about electronic devices, will give you a solid understanding regarding analog electronics.
Although Art of Electronics has lots of good stuff in it, it doesn't really explain how many of the circuits work. It's more of a recipe book. Electronic Principles by Malvino does a good job of explaining how different circuits work. It has extensive coverage of different types of op-amp circuits that is especially useful. As a sometime physics teacher, if I were going to teach an electronics lab I would probably recommend this book to my students as a supplement to whatever textbook the school decided they should use.
I purchased this edition because of the right price and more importantly, because it provides a clear presentation of the fundamentals. The fundamentals do not change and Malvino is one of the best authors in presenting the basics.
Recommended for students who want to learn the basics. I also recommend the Malvino textbook on Digital Computer Electronics.
This is NOT basic electronics. It presupposes a good understanding of basic electronics.
I didn't know that when I bought it. Had I known that, I definitely would've started out with another book. Since I'm now working on that other book (Bernard Grob, Basic Electronics) I can't tell you more about this one yet.
I design electronic circuits sporadically -- I'm mainly a programmer and writer by trade -- and I need periodic reminders of the theory and math involved in designing and solving circuits. Malvino was and continues to be my main source, along with The Art of Electronics by Horowitz and Hill and Calculus for Electronics by Richmond.
Thank you, Dr. Malvino!
