Electric Circuits is the most widely used introductory circuits reference book of the past decade. The book has remained popular due to its success in implementing three themes throughout: (1) It builds an understanding of concepts based on information the reader has previously learned; (2) The book helps stress the relationship between conceptual understanding and problem-solving approaches; (3) The authors provide numerous examples and problems that use realistic values and situations, giving the reader a strong foundation of engineering practice. FEATURES/BENEFITS *PSpice Supplement contains problems to teach how to construct PSpice source files-PSpice can be used to solve many of the exercises and problems found in the book.show more
