I have the old first 1995 edition, as well as 2010, and here are the differences:
1. The biggest PRINT change is between 95 and 10 (1 and 2 ed.), where two chapters, an appendix and moderate supplemental web material were added to expand the topic from deterministic to stochastic. An appendix was added on probability, and chapters on random signals and linear responses to random variable inputs.
2. This new addition includes all the old difference equation problems from the 90's, but of course does slightly update the stochastic material. Most of the 2010 edition is intact here, and I could only find a small sprinkling of "new text" additions (Schaum's tries to follow the top ten EE texts to supplement their problems with many additional examples). If this is for self study, you could probably get away with 10. However, the difficulty in getting this new edition is now ending at this writing and Amazon says shipping should no longer be a problem, and for the price...
3. The really big value add for 2014 are the videos. The 20 online problem solutions are extremely intuitive and thorough, certainly much more so than any of the major texts (Oppenheim and Chen being the most used, but Chaparro's Matlab text being key in today's PC driven environment--(Signals and Systems using MATLAB ). The 2010 links are now gone, but the 2014 videos are far superior due to the animation.
The only (mild) disappointment is that Schaum didn't add computing, code, software examples, etc. between these latest two editions, but I understand it, this 500 pager with low cost newsprint would double in size if they got into code. There ARE several new sections (called "bonuses") on matrices, which are pretty much the foundation for all the computed/ CAS solutions and math software packages. All the more reason to check out Chaparro, or your favorite Math/stats package. Some better schools even have signals and systems apis for Excel.
Finally, there is a great intro to circuit analysis which often today is moved to a separate course due to the amount of time that now has to be spent on not only Laplacians and Fourier transforms, but even Lagrangians today. Highly recommended to supplement the frankly weak example content of many of the most popular, and indeed painful, texts in use today. Won't make it easy, but will make it a lot easIER!
Fantastic book! I used this as a supplement to the textbook Signals and Systems by Oppenheim and plenty of class notes, but I honestly believe I could have done just as well using this book as my only resource. Probably could have done even better because of how clearly everything is laid out and the way the problems are ordered and structured. I currently own a few Schaum books but Dr. Hsu has distinguished himself as by far my favorite Schaum author. If you're taking this course and struggling, get it!
If you want detailed explanations as to why things work the way they do and the mathematical proofs, you'll need a real textbook, otherwise I can't imagine a better resource. This book does not cover sampling, which I ended up needing. The Digital Signal Processing Schaum book does, but it has a different author and I'm not sure it's a good as this one (I'll write a review when I find out).
What this book is not: A textbook. This is not meant to be the primary book out of which you learn a subject. It gives little to no context or explanation, and does not serve as a stand-alone text unless you're only interested in mastering the mechanics of the subject.
