This text is a modern classic. You can read this book as if you were reading a novel, because the author just leads you from one concept to another. A lot of solved examples coupled with numerous exercises are some of the salient features of this text.
Readers may also find 'Network Analysis and Synthesis', by Franklin F. Kuo, as well as 'Circuit Analysis', by Someshwar C. Gupta useful.

Got this to replace my lost (stolen??) text book from back in my university undergrad days in the 80's. Still a good "fill in the gaps" reference especially when used with other (and sometimes better) explanations of concepts that can be found online today.

Format: Hardcover
This was a first text for countless electrical engineers, and for good reason. To be sure, it reflects its era. But the content remains the cornerstone of a solidly constructed EE education. The style and organization provide an enviable model of clarity and purpose. The preface to the second edition, in which Van Valkenburg quoted A.F. Whitehead on the proper place of proof in education, outlines a philosophy of teaching which is -- if anything -- more and not less relevant today than then. Almost sixty years after its first publication, it would be difficult to overstate the impact this one book has made on generations of engineers. I'm sad to see it out of print and won't be loaning mine out again.

I had this book for a college class about 40+ years ago. A couple of years ago I donated it to the local library thinking I would never need it again. I was wrong. So I ordered a used copy through Amazon. The book arrived in great condition and the price was very reasonable. In addition it was a newer version than the book I had in college. So far I have only studies the chapter on Laplace Transforms and found it to be an excellent resource. The book was shipped from Green Books who I didn't know about before this order. I would certainly buy books from that source in the future. I plan to use this book in conjunction with several other books I purchased from Amazon to help me solve some differential equation problems.

This is the best book I have read on the subject of analog circuit networks. The approach is straight forward and to the point. The last edition is rev 3.
This and 'Modern Control engineering' by Ogata are the two best books to read about the subject.

Pretty old now, but the Van Valkenburg is a classic. This 1974 3rd edition on Network analysis (no, that's not computer network analysis!) is similar in outlook to the approach back in the days of the 1955 original, i.e. great mathematical depth and very little breadth, and that probably is not what most readers want now. There are, for example, many pages on the Nyquist Criterion (with diagrams to help make it clear, but a good knowledge of Stage 2 numerical Analysis would still be a good idea). If it is what you need, and most modern books skip such great detail, then it will be worth reaching for this book from a shelf. But be aware that it is almost halfway through the book before the likes of Norton's Theorem is reached, and it never gets on to active filters or anything as new-fangled as opamps.

Quite a lot has changed, in terms of what is relevant and what is stuffed into university courses, since this book was written. Probably a book like Gobind Daryanani's "Principles of Active Network Synthesis and Design" would mesh better with modern requirements (although that was written in 1976), but on occasions you will probably want to pick up something like this 571-page book for the grissly details the others just fly past nowadays!
