As a hobby or possibly a profession I've decided to pick up some basic knowledge in the electronics field, to compliment my education in computer science and programming. This is a really good book for drilling things into your head, but it's pretty fast paced at the same time.

There is one issue though, that I've had. With Ohm's Law and everything leading up to DC Capacitors the authors did a good job at explaining what things are and how they worked, or *why* they worked a certain way. Then all of the sudden (page 23) It starts on DC Capacitors and doesn't explain much and expects people to automatically know what certain things are that are completely unexplained throughout the entire book.

Mind you, it does mention that the book was written for people with basic knowledge of electronics, but still. Things like Farads could have been explained, but are not. Rather than explaining things it just says "A. What is the Answer?" and then in the answers below reads "A. Answer"... You don't explain much by stating a fact as a Q&A.

So, because I've had to refer to two other books and the internet about certain things that are pretty important more than once to be able to learn what is in *this* book, I have to rate it at 3 stars. Beyond that, it is a great book and helps a lot.

Walks the reader through the equations and concepts used in descrite circuits. Very useful book for going from an intial knowledge of electronics to an in depth knowledge of how circuits work.

I've been using this with my students--- they've found it very clear and are learning much more easily than expected.
