3.0 out of 5 stars Calculate the Equation
Another invaluable book. How many times in electronics you may require a formulae to apply to your project to explain some new parameters it requires? Perhaps not but if you want to do that, this is the book you need to help you find them.

This review is from: Practical Electronic Calculations and Formulae (BP) (Paperback)
A brilliant and well written book.

It is clear that the author thoroughly understands the subject matter, both technically, mathematically, and intuitively.

The book can be "dipped" into, but it is worthwhile to read it cover-to-cover, and work through some/all of the (many) examples. Doing so will increase your understanding of certain fundamentals, and thus increase your intuition with regards to electronics.

This book is great for learning from, and brushing up on stuff previously learnt. The book also makes for a great "sounding-board" when working on real-life electronics problems.

Further, the book is a great example of technical writing well done.

I highly recommend this book to both students and engineering/technician professionals.

Since the book is such great value for money, it is worthwhile buying two copies of the book - one for the bookshelf at home, and one for the desk/lab at work. I have done this.
If you find that you frequently end up taking your desk/lab copy with you on your commute home, and then forget to take it back to work the next working day, then you may need to buy a third copy for your commute bag :-)

Remember to buy the companion volume to "BP144 Further Practical Electronic Calculations and Formulae (BP)".

This review is from: Practical Electronic Calculations and Formulae (BP) (Paperback)
If you are into electronics and want to do more with less "suck it and see" then this is the book for you. I got my BSc over 25 years ago so am a very rusty when it comes to the various formulae, this book brings all those equations right back into focus. For anyone who wants stuff to work as it should do, get this book

This review is from: Practical Electronic Calculations and Formulae (BP) (Paperback)
This book I find is very good for an electronics old timer like myself inasmuch as it brings all the formulae that you might need into one handy book. I would recommend it to anyone involved in electronics design.

This review is from: Practical Electronic Calculations and Formulae (BP) (Paperback)
More than a need for the amateur radio enthusiast and a need for a quick look up in construction. Ideal pocket book packed with shed loads of information. Used or new, well worth the money.
