the book represented good value for the money and the presentation was helpful and provided a logical sequence to the solving of problems

This is a very good book for certain engineers - it is very thorough and wide ranging and will, as it claims, meet 75% of their needs. As a physicist, however, I was a little bit disappointed in the coverage and treatment, which were different (and contained important omissions) from what I expected; "fuller", more rounded treatments can be found in many other "electric circuits" books, for example on Amazon's pages. Just one example - most books treat first order circuits as a separate topic and introduce FODEs and other differential equation topics, including integrating factors, in a big way (or are these out of fashion these days with so much solution software around)?
I have not looked at every page of this book but think I may have found a little of something I wanted along the lines above - but not in the disciplined, comprehensive way I prefer
And YES - I did read the contents before buying!
Lastly, I know I am comparing standard texts with a solutions manual but surely the basic contents should be similar

How much do you know? 3 Nov 2008
By Clifford W. Blasch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I first wanted to buy this book, the reviews weren't that helpful. Alot of issues with mistakes and proof reading. My background is one of electronics, I have over 100 semester hours in electrical engineering from a major college. So before you buy this book, let me point out some things.

First, this isn't an introductry book for electronics, If your looking for a guide buy something else I highly recommend The Art of Electronics Anyway back to the review:

This book covers several items which I spent several years learning in college all 4 years. It is filled with integration, and other wonderful calculus and physics formulas. If you are afraid of upper level math, don't buy this. It goes WAY beyond introductry courses,and will not explain how or why.

On the other side of the house. If you have a background in Electronics, heavy in theory. If you are alittle rusty or just trying to revive those long dead brain cells, this book is excellent. Yes there are a few mistakes, but as your working the problem, its very easy to spot, missed decimal places etc. I'm currently using this book to prep for the US Postal Electronics Tech Test. I anticipate this will cover everthing I need, with the exception of number conversions, binary to decimal etc. That might be covered, but first glance I didn't see it.

So in summary, if an Integration sign scares you, or If you have watched "Good Will Hunting" and have never seen the symbols he writes on the mirror, or have never heard of Kirchhoff,vectors, Thev Eq, or even Ohms Law don't buy this. If you have seen or done the above, your pretty safe.

I hope this helps.

A book all Electrical Engineering Student should have! 11 July 2002
By "berteebklyn" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a sophomore taking my first Circuit Analysis class I found that the my text didn't have much examples or problems to solve at the end of each chapter. Schaum's was the solution, it's a great practice guide, especially when it comes to solving circuit analysis where the possible problem combinations are infinite and only practice will enable you to master the basics of circuit analysis.
It's also great for preparation before an exam. If you think you're ready for a test, I'm sure Schaum's will prove you wrong.

3500 problems 2 Aug 2007
By Nathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Honestly, this book should be called "3,500 Problems in Electrical Circuits" - the 3000 problems presented along with the 500 errors in their solutions. Buyer beware - unless you're confident in your circuit skills and just want to solve problems - be careful! This book has incorrect solutions from missing terms to magically appearing factors of 10 to misspellings (even misspelling Newton! which is the equal of scientific sacrilege). Many of the circuit drawings are not even clean CAD drawings but cruder hand drawings...

All of this shows a clear lack of attention, review and editing - so unless you wish to perform these functions, move on! This is the product of a cram session overnighter in order to get a paycheck... The value equivalent of "Britney Spears Guide to Class and Refinement"...

Very Helpful 10 Oct 2002
By Mark Goodell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I wish that all study guides were as useful as this one. In each topic area the author starts with simple problems, so the student can get the hang of what is going on, and progresses to the more complicated. I used this guide a number of years ago when I was taking undergraduate electrical engineering classes, and I still think of it as an important friend.

Errors Errors and more Errors 20 Nov 2013
By Max G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
So I got this book thinking I could find some questions to re-enforce my studying on circuits. Boy was I wrong. Soon as I opened the book the first question in there had an error in the solution. A trivial one, but an error nonetheless. I can understand that a book with 3000 questions will probably have some typos and mistakes, but page one question one? That is more than lazy. Just shows how devoted the author was to creating quality problems. I then progressed through this book and went on to find several more errors. Unless finding errors is your thing (maybe you derive a sense of pleasure from it), avoid this book like the plague.
