Known for its student-friendly approach, the revision of this best-selling book thoroughly covers the fundamentals of circuit theory from both a time domain and frequency domain point of view. The third edition of this comprehensive text has been fully updated and modernized to reflect current approaches to the course. It includes a greater emphasis on design, SPICE, and op amps, so as to better reflect the recent developments in the study of linear circuits.

This text provides the student with a solid foundation for future studies in any branch of electrical engineering. It is appropriate for sophomore-level courses in Introductory Circuit Analysis.

  • Design. While retaining a traditional approach, design material has been added to most chapters. Additionally, an entire chapter on circuit design principles has been added to both motivate students, and to give the course a real-world flavor.
  • Increased coverage of current topics. There is an increased emphasis on SPICE, op amps, the Laplace transform, transistor functions, and frequency response.
  • New problems. More than half of the problems are new or revised to illustrate current solutions.
  • Supplements. Includes both a new appendix on using MATLAB, and a separate SPICE student booklet.
  • Introduces the operational amplifier early, and uses it as a basic element throughout the book.
  • Provides numerous exercises and examples throughout.
  • Written in a clear, precise style that has been highly praised throughout many editions.
