5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent text for learning solid state devices
As a chemical engineer, I was surprised how easy this text is to read. Anyone could pick up this book and understand solid state devices. From quantum mechanics to crystal chemistry to elecrtrical engineering, this text provides a student with everything there is to know about the engineering of solid state devices. I would read this book for fun!

3.0 out of 5 stars Far beyond undergraduate/masters level
This book was recommended by my lecturer, but it is far more than is necessary for anything under phd level (I'm a 1st class masters graduate). I would suggest you go for something more understandable - this book does very little to aid understanding of fundamental concepts, instead it develops them to an even deeper level of complexity far beyond what you want at degree...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for learners, 3 Nov 2004
By 
At the start fo my University degree, I really struggled with the Physics and Devices part of the course. This book really helped, it works through things at a fairly slow pace, with plenty of examples and diagrams. There are still some places where things can suddenly become complex, but provided you're concentrating properly and have read and understood what comes before, its easy enough.

I would suggest you go for something more understandable - this book does very little to aid understanding of fundamental concepts, instead it develops them to an even deeper level of complexity far beyond what you want at degree level.
Unless you really want a very very detailed book then I would not recommend it.
