Description

Circuit analysis is the fundamental gateway course for computer and electrical engineering majors. Engineering Circuit Analysis has long been regarded as the most dependable textbook. Irwin and Nelms has long been known for providing the best supported learning for students otherwise intimidated by the subject matter. In this new 11th edition, Irwin and Nelms continue to develop the most complete set of pedagogical tools available and thus provide the highest level of support for students entering into this complex subject.   

Irwin and Nelms’ trademark student-centered learning design focuses on helping students complete the connection between theory and practice. Key concepts are explained clearly and illustrated by detailed worked examples. These are then followed by Learning Assessments, which allow students to work similar problems and check their results against the answers provided. The WileyPLUS course contains tutorial videos that show solutions to the Learning Assessments in detail, and also includes a robust set of algorithmic problems at a wide range of difficulty levels.

WileyPLUS sold separately from text.

  • Each chapter begins with, and is structured around, specific learning objectives. Chapter openers also feature new laboratory experiments that are associated with the learning objectives of the chapter.
    • Lab experiments are integrated into the WileyPLUS course with pre-lab concept questions.  Additional problems, both computational and conceptual, are provided for students to complete after performing the experiments.
  • Tools to help students build their problem-solving skills have been expanded to take full advantage of the combination of print and digital media. Key concepts are first described in text with illustrations, followed by detailed example solutions.  Additional problems -- Learning Assessments -- are given with their answers but not solutions provided. Most Learning Assessment are solved in detailed video tutorial in WileyPLUS.
    • Also in WileyPLUS, algorithmic problems give students the opportunity to practice the same types of problems with randomized values that change with repeated attempts.
  • In order to provide maximum flexibility, solved examples are available in online supplements that apply the most popular problem-solving programs, MATLAB®, PSPICE or MultiSim. These examples are all based on problems in the text, and any or all of them can be integrated into custom editions of the text.
  • Approximately 1400 end of chapter problems have been greatly expanded and revised, including hundreds of new problems of all levels of difficulty.
  • Every chapter includes FE Exam Problems, which closely match the style and level of problems typically found on this standardized test taken by most engineering students before graduation.
  • Reading quiz questions enable students to self-assess their comprehension, giving faculty timely information on what students are currently working on, in order to address their needs.
  • Concept videos deliver ‘virtual office hours’, focusing on specific learning assessments within the text.
  • Students have access to conceptual and demonstration material featuring graphic examples and narrated videos in multiple modes.
  • Online math skills modules enable students and faculty to assess and reinforce fundamental skills, keeping students on track.
  • Extensive ‘teaching-by-example’ approach: key concepts are explained multiple times in varying formats to support diverse learning styles. 
  • The four-color design is employed to enhance and clarify both text and illustrations. This greatly improves the pedagogical presentation, particularly with complex circuit illustrations. A consistent color scheme for circuit elements and other graphic components is used throughout the text. 
  • Detailed, flexible coverage of the most popular problem-solving software – Pspice, MATLAB®, and LabView® – is provided in online supplements that can be included in custom print versions at the professor’s discretion.
  • Each chapter includes FE Exam Problems, which closely match the style and level of problems typically found on this standardized test taken by most engineering students before graduation
