STAY away from this text, even if your school requires it. You will NOT learn the material from this book. If you are a school official, PLEASE do not use this text for your school!
GET BOTH OF THESE instead. They are the best:
-- Linear Signals and Systems by B.P. Lathi
An EXCELLENT book about systems and signals that is incredibly qualitative, clear, and carefully written. The first 6 chapters about Systems are its strength. You will really learn the material well, not just theory, but real world. Its Fourier signal anaylsis chapters are a bit weaker.
-- Transforms in Signals and Systems by Peter Kraniauskas
An amazing book with the most incredible qualitative GRAPHICS. The entire subject of transform analysis is presented with pictures AND complete analysis. You can't possibly understand the transforms better with any other presentation. This is the book to use for Fourier transform analsys.
The book is poorly worded. Examples are not fully worked, and make critical assumptions between steps that are neither documented nor explained. The homework problems bare as much semblance to the text as I bare to Tommy Lee or a large piece of office furniture. Sections of the book are not in chronological order, meaning that critical information for understanding a section is often several more sections ahead.
If you have to buy this text, I strongly recommend purchasing the Shaums (sp?) Outlines on Fourier Transforms, which is concisely written and has several well documented examples. I encourage you to keep this book in the bathroom as an alternate source of material should you run out of toilet paper. At least then, you may get some use out of it.
In all honestly you should take the money you were going to spend on this book and spend half as much to hire a pirate that will get you the 4th edition. Then other half on alcohol to get you through the semester. Plus you can just get the assigned problems from a classmate. Or a subscription to Chegg would be an even better use of your money if your professor selected this book for their class.
hey, I got through it.. no thanks to the book
The material is not presented in a very concise manner I typically spend a great deal of time filtering through the chapters to find the important details. Most of the time I have to go to a text from one of my other courses to find what I am looking for.
The examples are few and not helpful in working the exercises at the end of the chapters.
Any good text on circuit analysis which covers the Fourier and Laplace transforms and their applications would be more useful.
As a student I found this book only applies to schools that want to have to reteach this subject in all latter classes. Who do not want ABET cert. Or prefer to spoon feed their engineering students. This book is an example of how Pearson is just a money hungry corporation who prefers bad textbooks over classics and sells junk just to make money.
If you are an engineer and want a reference book to reference find another book.

This book is great. I don't know why people are saying this stuff. The problems and examples are concrete. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Guitar Hero
Lacks actual examples, too much theory, doesn't really tell you how to find solution on most of the examples, just definitionsPublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer

I personally did not like this book. That is not to say that it is not useful or loaded with information, but for my level of understanding, it went right over my head.Published 17 months ago by John August
Some textbooks are friendly and inviting; this is not one of those. Examples are limited in what they demonstrate for you and some of the practice problems have parts that are... Read morePublished 17 months ago by Michael Phillips
