Product Description

From the Back Cover


Over the last two decades, Irwin′s BASIC ENGINEERING CIRCUIT ANALYSIS has built a solid reputation for its highly accessible presentation, clear explanations, and extensive array of helpful learning aids. No other circuits text does a better job of removing resistances that stand between you and a successful first course in circuits analysis!

Now in a new Seventh Edition – and itst first Wiley edition – this student–frirendly text has been fine tuned and revised, making it more effective and even easier to use. New features includes:

  • New and revised pedagogy. The author and Wiley′s editors have completely reworked the text′s pedagogical structure to enhance your understanding of the material.
  • A Learning Styles Survey to help you determine your individual learning style and effectively use the various learning aids within the text and supplements.
  • Real–world problems. Many new example problems address practical design issues and applications, and a remarkable variety of end–of–chapter problems range from basic to advanced.
  • Superior coverage of MATLAB. MATLAB is completely integrated throughout the text and the Student Study Guide. Special icons identify sections where CAD tools are used and discussed.
  • The Problem Solving Companion features carefully selected problems for every chapter with every step and solution worked out in great detail. Available online at www.wiley.com/college/irwin.
  • Student Study Guide with CD–ROM (0–471–03492–4) includes a variety of study tools, such as PSPICE, MATLAB, Microsoft Excel, and Electronics Workbench simulations. The accompanying CD–ROM includes circuit simulations and five easy–to–use video segments demonstrating PSPICE.
  • Circuit Works. Access to this circuits simulator is included free with each new copy. Confused by resistors, capacitors, and op–amps? This tool will help you learn the principles and relationships that underlie first– and second–order circuits. Ace your course with Irwin and Circuit Works!

Format: Hardcover
Like the title itself says, this is an introductory book on Circuit Analysis. In the first year of my engineering graduation, I used this book for the subject of Basic Circuit Analysis and found it to be extremely helpful. I think I can even say that this book made my life a lot easier, since the author - J. David Irwin - did a very good job on explaining concepts and circuit analysis basic methods and laws very clearly.
The book is very well structred, objective and and the subjects are easily understandable for the reader with little or none electronic circuit knowledge: every chapter starts with an introduction and a list of helpful topics which the author named "Learning Goals"; then, everytime a new concept/law/method is introduced, the author tests the reader to see if he did comprehend what has been explained to him by presenting him with very basic exercices, "Learning by Doing"; the author also provides the reader with "Learning Hints" on a regular basis, which can be interpreted as algorithms to solve certain problems or simple hints for the reader to do the exercice correctly, avoiding typical mistakes; at last, when a resonable amount of concepts have been introduced, the book features many "Learing Examples" with resolutions (note that resolutions can be of an extreme importance when the reader cannot understand how a certain problem is solved).

This book is never boring, has lots of practical examples (real world examples), and shows the reader the contents in various ways such as , text , examples, small exercises.. It's very interactive although it's only a book.

I got the book to learn myself the basics of circuit analysis. The book looked good, and I started to read through the first chapter. After I was done with the first chapter I wanted to do the problems to see if I had learned anything from this chapter. Then I found out that there are no solutions to the problems in this book whatsoever!!

So even if I learn something from this book, I cannot control my calculations.

So for anyone thinking of buying this book to teach themself circuit analysis, don't!!

This book is horrible! 2 Oct 2005
By S. Bluhm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the book we're reading in my first EE class, and it sucks. Maybe if I had a great professor that actually taught and walked us through the practice problems it wouldn't be so frustrating, but he doesn't, and it makes trying to go through the book EXTREMELY difficult.

There are huge gaps in information that show up in assigned problems, which I understand can help reinforce the learning process, but there are books that do it effectively and then there's this piece of crap.

The authours of this steaming pile of cow waste leave out important details that can cost a student literally hours in trying to figure out a solution only to discover that the reason for the incorrect answer is because the book failed to mention ANYTHING that might be helpful.

I can't relate how many times I went online and actually looked up information in OTHER books that were 1000000 times better than this POS.

An example, you ask? On the section on combining independent current sources, it mentions (in about 2 sentences) that current sources should be combined when in parallel. That's fine and dandy, but what it doesn't tell you is that when you're doing ANY PROBLEM where current is in question, you've got to add any current sources BACK in to the answer, depending on where they appear in the circuit, or you'll get garbage as a result.

Is this common sense? Sure, I guess, if you've already taken the class and already understand circuit analysis. If you haven't and you don't, the authors apparently decided to leave you up s@#t creek without a paddle after robbing you blind.

If you're taking an EE class and see that this is the text, check out the professor before you take it, or you'll be sorry.

Horrible 10 Nov 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One of the reviews on this page is obviously written by the publisher. The one thing I can't stand about a technical textbook is when graphs or schematics are on one page and the explination is 2 pages later. With this book I find myself spending more time flipping back and forth between the 2 than actually studying. This is just one thing about the book that makes it hard to understand. Oh and one more thing, the "Circuit Works" program which you pay for the use of when you buy the text book either doesn't exist or is being kept hidden purposely, none of my classmates or the instructor has been able to access it. I've emailed the publisher twice to no avail.

This is the worst book I have ever used in my enitire college career. 20 Jan 2006
By Paul Templet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was awful. Concepts are confusing, examples are lacking, and most of the homework problems do not represent the material taught in the revelant chapter.

This book is terrible in getting across concepts and procedures relating to a variety of problems. One or two examples didn't help me work 20 hw problems, and on top of this the solutions aren't in the back of the book. you have to go on their website to get any supplementary material (which sucks just as bad). It will take forever just to get started on the homework problems because you will have to figure out how it even related to what was read in the chapter.
A great book! 18 July 2013

Format: Textbook Binding
Makes an otherwise complex subject seem simple by the way it is presented.I found it to be an exceptionally well written text, and would encourage anyone who is interested in the subject to buy it. A great book!
Circuits text 22 April 2013

Used this book back in college for a circuits class. Decent book I learned some important things from it. This edition is practically the exact same as the previous edition however.
