2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed March 6 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review applies to the Kindle version.

I have graduate degrees in physics and bioengineering and took several courses in electrical engineering as an undergraduate senior and in graduate school, but I am not a full blown electrical engineer. I know (knew?) enough for my needs. I purchased this book as a refresher and companion to Horowitz and Hill because this volume is available for my Kindle. The reviews convinced me this would be a good buy. I don't dispute the content and the writing style is good. There are, however, many, many typos in the figures, examples, and in line symbols. I am only 50 pages or so into the book and have been very frustrated that I am now proof reading a book when I wanted to be refreshing my understanding. Example, Figure 2.1 lists Mica with a resistivity of 1X10 ^ -13 ohms m, or 10 ^7 micro ohms m and glass as 1X10 ^ 8 ohm m or 10^4 micro ohm m. Fine, I can unwind things like this, but I am nervous as I get into the more advanced chapters where I'm counting on the book to give me accurate information. If you already know the material, you can read the book and correct the typos. If not, be careful. I don't know if the same errors exist in the hard bound version. Maybe someone who has it can check...

5.0 out of 5 stars This book can be used to translate your college textbook Oct. 28 2008
By William Lemmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have to say I'm not crazy about the title, it is too general and promises more then it should. However I was very impressed with the explanations given for the various topics covered. My weakest point in my engineering curriculum were laplace transforms so I went straight to Transients and Laplace Transforms to see if it could help me understand a little better (and eight years out of school). To my surprise I was able to understand exactly what was going on and the equations were perfectly laid out to see how everything fit together, not bad for being out of school for so long.

I continued looking through the book and wondered why in the world they would have a section on Circuit Simulation with so many different software programs available. Yet after reviewing the section, it was actually very informative and talked specifically about the type of tests that were performed like DC analysis and AC small signal analysis as well as pole zero analysis and noise analysis regards to the types of tests and analysis that go on in software like Tina Pro, MultiSim or SPICE.

In reviewing the Filter Design chapter, lets face it Signals and Systems wasn't my strong point, once again the explanations were easy to follow and yet enough so that I could continue with a more complex book in needed.

I would suggest this book to any college student who wants to get a better explanation on the topic that they are currently studying. This would be a great primer for Electronics, Analog and Signals and Systems. For any electrical engineer out of school that needs a quick review on a topic not seen for a while, this book would be an excellent reference.

But as mentioned in another review, be careful with the figures as section 17.3.3 mentions a low pass filter and references figure 17.7 which are high pass filter graphs. If you can pick out the problems then you are in the right field of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for EE's Nov. 1 2008
By P. Mathis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is quite a tome; at over 1000 pages it covers nearly the complete span of topics found in a EE bachelors program! It is soft-bound but sturdy; I have every reason to believe it will hold up the frequent use that I'll have for it!

While my Computer Engineering degree covered most of the topics covered in this text, it's been 14 years, and I've forgotten a lot of it. This book provides a very thorough overview of the topics covered with excellent example problems. While I don't think this book would be enough to base an entire degree, it does make for a great review and will find a treasured spot on my reference bookshelf!

I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking such a reference book on the general field of EE.

I particularly liked the section on Digital Electronics by Clive Maxfield. In several sub-sections he explains topics that I never really understood from my many classes on the topic!

I really can find nothing wrong with this work. I wish I'd had it 14 years ago!

4.0 out of 5 stars Electrical Engineering: Know it All, A REFERENCE BOOK Oct. 26 2008
By Douglas L. Datwyler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have a copy of Electrical Engineering: know it all. This book comes with an interesting premise: you can know it all about Electrical Engineering. To get there, you do need to have a background in engineering, or be studying Electrical Engineering, and then this book can become your back up for "everything" you have studied. It is similar to "The Art of Electronics" (Horowitz and Hill) in some ways. I will be keeping both on my shelf.

The table of contents is the best description of what is in the book. It starts from the basics, and covers the basis of every electrical engineering course you took (or didn't), and some courses that may have come into being since you started your engineering career. The authors (all are authors) of the chapters know the material well, and present it as thoroughly as can be done in the few pages given. Pertinent equations are given through out, and explained. Of course, some of the equations are just reminders of what you learned "years" ago.

Please proceed with caution as you read the book. Some figures have things a little backward, like those in Figure 17.3 (high and low pass filters reversed).

Remember, this is a reference book. As such, you cannot just use it to learn electrical engineering. Having the background will help you use it in work or engineering school. It is complete enough to help you resolve a problem, and also has references you can turn to if you need more.

I recommend having this book on your shelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, but not for everyone April 25 2011
By Tech Teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book covers every available topic on EE. That's good. The downside is that if you are looking for something to help you with a specific area, say control systems or power systems, you might be better off getting something more focused. But the book's title says it pretty clearly: Know It All....not know this specific area of EE.
