Basic Engineering Circuit Analysis, Ninth Edition maintains its student friendly, accessible approach to circuit analysis and now includes even more features to engage and motivate students. In addition to brand new exciting chapter openers, all new accompanying photos are included to help engage visual learners. This revision introduces completely re-done figures with color coding to significantly improve student comprehension and FE exam problems at the ends of chapters for student practice. The text continues to provide a strong problem-solving approach along with a large variety of problems and examples.
This textbook introduces the fundamental concepts involved in the design and analysis of electric circuits, and provides real-world examples that demonstrate the usefulness of the material. Advanced topics include the Laplace transform and Fourier analysis techniques. The seventh edition moves two-port networks from an appendix to a full chapter, and adds a chapter on semiconductor electronics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Textbook introduces the techniques of linear circuit analysis, primarily for electrical engineering majors. Requires math background through differential and integral calculus and an understanding of the techniques involved in the solution of differential equations with constant coefficients; basic knowledge of matrices and computer programming would be helpful.

I purchased this textbook online based upon its popularity (ranking) as a self-study review of basic circuitry in preparation for an intermediate-level power systems course. Upon initial review, I found the text well formatted, easy to read, and comprehensive. However, once I began to utilize the text (i.e. work problems), I quickly discovered that there are no answers provided to any of the end of chapter problems, not even odd-numbered solutions. I looked online for a solutions manual, but there is not one for this book. There is a "Problem-Solving Companion," but it contains its own problems, and very few of them. I contacted Wiley (the publisher), but the solutions are only available to instructors who have adopted the text for classroom use. So, if you're looking for something to read only, it's a fine book. If you're looking to learn by working problems (critical to learning, in my opinion), this isn't the book for you.
