1. This book is actually a compilation of UCLA microelectronics lecture notes and UCLA ECE students are giving them a 5 star rating here at Amazon.com, which is misleading...
2. Large amount of errors in examples, figures and text make some already abstract concepts even confusing.
3. Certain Chapter's pace is too slow(Chap 4&5). it will make you feel saturated with details and become overwhelmed very quickly.
4. Interpretation of some chapters can be very computational relying heavily on tricky mathematical deductions( serial approximation, limit approximation), it takes some time to get used to.
5. This book contains decent amount of practical design info that is valuable to medium level readers.
I wouldn't recommend this book for self-teaching, as using this error-laden 1st edition without guidelines from lecturer would be a grinding and nerve-wracking experience. A very tough book on a very tough subject.
5 stars for the Contents page, 3 stars for the rest of it. Editing is abysmal at best.
The text itself is reasonably clear and helpful, but do not expect to use the given problems to create functional homework sets. It's like somebody went through with a random number generator and changed all the numbers to create a new revision, never bothering to verify that the stated assumptions are still met.
This book may have the most awful problems I've ever seen in a text.
Cons:. Rarely any examples of when early affect is present in CE BJT.
