The explanation is clear with many examples.
However, there are some problems in the format.
1. highlights are not uniform
For example, when there are eqns with original version and simplified version,
the original version is highlighted sometimes, while the simplified version is highlighted other times.
Another example is that when solving CE, CC, and CB amplifier, it requires 6 eqn to solve each amplifier type.
However, CE amp section has all 6 eqns highlighted, while CC amp section has 3 eqn highlighted, and CB amp section has 2 eqn highlighted.
Overall, there are very typo throughout the book.
However, in Chapter 15, there are A LOT of typos, almost every single page.
The book is clear, so that it can be used for self-study.
The only thing is that I had to make my own note of important equations, because the highlights are often wrong.
And here's where it gets ironic. The samples that are in the text are amazing. They're laid out in an easy to understand way, providing all the details of working through the problem, from beginning to end, with the approach, unknowns, assumptions, and steps all laid out. Unfortunately, you're looking at maybe one example per section tops. So if you want to know how to do anything that's not covered in that single, specific example, you're **** out of luck, friend. And if your professor is like mine, and lectures straight out of the book, literally copying the slides the author's make available online onto the board, and then for "examples" literally just copying the one or two examples straight out of the book, then you're going to be stuck between a rock and a hard place.
To give a concrete example, say one of the problems asks you to find the power consumed by a diode. No where in the book, let alone the chapter or the section, will you find an example of how to do this. I suppose that you can derive it, but then what's the point of the text, if it's not so much going to allude to the path that you need to take, why the hell would you pay so much for it? I'm ashamed of the author's for having the audacity to publish this book, I'm not going to lie.
If you do not need this for a class and just wish to brush up on your old Microelectronic Circuit Design... what are you doing looking at a book? There's the internet for that sort of thing. You could pick it up if you really wanted, but you are better off finding a simpler (and potentially cheaper) book or finding explinations of circuits online. In all honesty, that is what I do, and I own the book.
