Overview

Electrical Circuit Theory and Technology is a fully comprehensive text for courses in electrical and electronic principles, circuit theory and electrical technology. The coverage takes students from the fundamentals of the subject, up to and including first degree level. Thus, this book is ideal for students studying engineering for the first time, and suitable for pre-degree vocational courses, especially where progression to higher levels of study is likely.

John Bird's approach, based on 700 worked examples supported by over 1000 problems (icluding answers), is ideal for students of a wide range of abilities, and can be worked through at the student's own pace. Theory is kept to a minimum, placing a firm emphasis on problem-solving skills, and making this a thoroughly practical introduction to these core subjects in the electrical and electronic engineering curriculum.

The second edition includes new material on semiconductor diodes, transistors and operational amplifiers. The content has been carefully matched to the latest syllabuses (including Edexcel) and typical undergraduate modules.

700 worked examples - 1050 problems - Answers to problems included Formula sheets - 18 assessment papers (answers not supplied)

Free Tutor Support Material including full worked solutions to the assessment papers featured in the book is available at http://www.bh.com/manuals/0750649895/. Material only available to lecturers who have adopted the text as an essential purchase. In order to obtain your password to access the material please e-mail jo.blackford@repp.co.uk with the following details: course title, number of students, your job title and work address.

Comprehensive coverage = easy learning progression from L3 to L4
Careful syllabus matching for 2000/1 Edexcel specifications and current degree modules John Bird's 'learning by example' technique is a thoroughly practical way of gaining knowledge and understanding.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
By providing a basic grounding in the subject alongside more advanced topics, the author has produced a book that will be accessible to all university students, including many whose A-levels have given them limited background in this field. It will also be popular among HNC/D students looking for a single comprehensive textbook. Full coverage of the BTEC National and Advanced GNVQ syllabuses make this ideal for students looking for progression in their studies. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
