Format: Hardcover
This is a horrible book to start out with. If you're new to the concepts in the book you will not learn much. If you're already knowledgeable in the topics covered it might be a decent reference, but to learn anything from...? Useless.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a first year student in electrical engineering and I've been using this book since August as main source. I must admit the overall coverage is great for less than 1000 pages. It is easy to find a concept and to navigate between the well divided chapters. Unfortunatly, practical problems are left aside in this book. End-of-chapter problems are to basic for real-life engineering and are only useful to understand basic theory and to practice essential engineering maths. As many other books, complete solutions of problems are very hard to obtain via the Web. I would recommend using it as a reference to get a second way to explain essential ideas concerning circuits. The first and second chapter are great because they cover basic circuit analysis in a nice way and a lot of examples are used along the book. But when you dive in semiconductors and op-amp, it is getting too heavy. Overall, nice diagrams and example for theory most of the time well explained, but forget about complex and useful circuits.

Format: Hardcover
I am an engineering student at Georgia Tech and have used various texts covering topics from orginismal biology to quantum physics. Hambley's Electrical Engineering book is lacking in some of the most fundamental elements that are required for a successful text in any engineering field. There are very few solutions to problems and the solution that are provided are incomplete, providing mostly the final answer as opposed to a complete logic pattern to achieve the answer. The in chapter exercises demonstrate only the most meager applications of the sometimes tedious analysis steps or theorems. Finally, the clarity of author's intent is often hazed by generality or over specificity. I cannot see how an electrical engineering major can use this text for anything other than a stabilizer for a wobbling table. Save yourself the money and purchase a Schaum's outline and a problem work book complete with solutions.

Format: Hardcover
Weak point
1. Lack of examples
2. No detail solutions
3. few solution to chapter exercise
Good point
1. Used blue, white and black instead of only black and white in color in book content.
2. Hard cover, it's not easy to destroy the book cover
3. thin in size. It used about 800 pages to cover Electronics, Digital system, electonmechanics and Circuit Theory.
So great......

It has potential Oct. 17 2000
By "andygoss" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
this book has a lot of potential. As a college student, I must say that this book really stinks. The in-text examples do not represent what is needed to do the homework. Also, there is no way to check answers to the homework problems as there are no solutions in the back and a solutions manual is not available. The lack of solutions makes this book very difficult to use.

Great coverage, but misses some essentials... June 21 2005

Good Advanced Text. May 9 2007
By Duncan Idaho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It does not seem that many people like this book. I used it for a sophmore level analog circuits course at my university. I found it to be an excellent text and very helpful in understanding electrical engineering. This text is designed to be read with a paper and pencil in hand. It is not a sit down and understand it kind of book. It requires some sincere and dedicated study, as the topic demands. It presents a number of difficult problems to help stretch the analytic capabilities of the student. It also comes with some very useful software. It isn't the best text book I have ever seen but it is close.

Not a good book April 12 2007
By Jonathan M. Banks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I had to get this book because my school required it but if I had the choice I would look for a better book. This book has no answers in the back and a select few on the book resources. The example problems are not very helpful and the book is confusing in almost every way.
