Electric Circuits is an introductory text for students taking their first course in electricity at the college level, more specifically at the two-year or technician level. Bell's text takes a graduated approach to developing basic electrical principles that makes the theory interesting and easy to understand. Beginning with fundamental concepts, the full spectrum of electrical circuit topics is covered, from simple dc circuits to complex ac network analysis, including resonance, transformers, and three-phase ac circuits.
