Principles of Electric Circuits
For courses in Electric Circuits I & II, Introduction to Electric Circuits, and DC/AC Circuits.Acclaimed for its strong emphasis on troubleshooting, this full-color text provides a clear introduction to DC/AC circuits supported by an abundance of exercises, examples, and illustrations-empowering students with the knowledge, insight, and problem-solving experience they need to step out of the classroom and into a job. Fully supported by an instructional visual program that includes photographs, illustrations, tables and charts, includes specially designed, hands-on "Technology Theory Into Practice" (TECH Tips) sections linking principles to real world practices, and limits the use of mathematics to only those concepts that are needed for understanding.
