This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition.

By helping students develop an intuitive understanding of the subject, Fundamentals of Microelectronics teaches them to think like engineers. The second edition of Razavis Fundamentals of Microelectronics retains its hallmark emphasis on analysis by inspection and building students design intuition. It incorporates a host of new pedagogical features that make the book easy to teach and learn from, including application sidebars; self-check problems with answers; simulation problems with SPICE and MULTISIM; and an expanded problem set that is organized by degree of difficulty and clearly associated with specific chapter sections.

    Best as desk reference, not for independent learning

    Back in college, this was the defining text for circuit analysis. The author is very descriptive in his explanation of how to analyze BJT/CMOS circuits. However, it's usefulness without an instructor is limited.

    There are no solutions, save for the instructor solution manual. Therefore, students are at a loss when it comes to understanding what they did incorrectly in solving problems from this text. Independent study (outside of a classroom) is also very limited due to this deficiency (which is why I gave this textbook only 2 stars out of five). With at least some solutions available, it would be an otherwise excellent text. I would recommend buying this textbook with caution if you do not have previous experience/instruction in transistor circuit analysis.
