Circuits Third Edition Textbook

This book contains 32 Technology Briefs, each providing an overview of how the book concepts are applied to real-world applicaitons.
This widely adopted work conveys a set of timeless principles and problem solving techniques in a modern context, but also provides a valuable framework for subsequent studies. As circuits theory is traditionally the entry course into electrical and computer engineering, the book offers a wide-ranging and inspiring vision of the profession. A background in physics and elementary differential and integral calculus is assumed.

This textbook includes a serial number that you can use to activate the LabVIEW and Multisim Student Edition software applications. This serial number is printed inside the back cover of your book.  
  If you have a used copy of the Book, you will need to purchase the software through:


  • to analyze circuits that contain resistors, capacitors, and inductors with direct current and alternating current sources.
  • to analyze circuits in the time domain showing transient response and in the frequency domain showing filtering and resonance properties.
  • to be familiar with nonlinear circuit components and practical circuits that can be built from these components.
