I am really happy with the way seller handled the selling process. Absolutely no complications you get whatever you pay for.
I would defiantly recommend this seller for any of the used or new books.
Good day.

I disagree with the two previous "critics" April 27 2000
By Student from Ventura County, CA - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I believe the mistake that many schools make is using this book too soon with students, and that is why they are confused and complain that this is not for students of "basic" electronic communication. My school did not offer it until the 8th quarter (2 years after start date), so by then the students are be well-instructed in the subject-matter that is required to be known when you study from this book. Also, our instructors are well-educated on the subject, and have no problem explaining any area that the students find confusing.

Too dense in a too small package Dec 10 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Some of the hardest and most complex circuits and schematics are not explained at all. Only the simplest things seem easy to understand. The author never demonstrates the equations or where they come from. The author assumes that the reader is a working engineer of technician that needs this book to remember the basics of communication electronics. Definitely not a recommended book to support an introductory course to communications.

Poorly organized, few good real world examples. Dec 10 2004
By Brandon Q. Jensen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have no idea why my professor chose this book. He had a list of typos that we had to beware of and several of the chapter questions had incorrect answers. Only buy this book if you are required by a class, otherwise look for a more intuitive and better organized text.

Confusing, vague, and does not clearly establish foundations July 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The worst electronics book I have ever read. The author assumes and does not establish a firm foundation in which most calculations are made or where constants or formulas are derived from. The book presents some of the material in simple plain english that almost anybody could understand then suddenly skips into a realm in which a person without prior knowledge of the subject is likely to get lost and frustrated. I wish that the school I am attending did not offer this book. I would rather have my money back and purchase a book that really is "student friendly." This book does not incorporate the fundamentals of electronics into the world of communications. The book is full of assumptions that the student knows what,where, how, why and when to use formulas. In addition, the lab supplement is equally confusing and vague. The labs seem to have no overall direction and purpose. They are not laid out in an easy to follow fashion. This book might be better suited for someone who already has had a course in modern electronic communication and is using this book for review/refresher or a study guide. This is NOT a good book for BASIC ELECTRONIC STUDENTS trying to learn modern electronic communication.

Very disorganized and confusing to someone new to this field Aug. 22 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is written in a manner that assumes prior experiance in this field. The communications teacher who teaches out of this text has a hard time relating subject matter to the format of the book. Almost none of the formula's are worked out and related to subject material. A paragraph of text on one page will talk about a diagram on another page,a formula on yet another page and refer to a future subject, not yet discussed but brought up. The text also talks in constant acronyms and field jargan,making it difficult to get through a paragraph without cross-referencing.I only rate this book 1 star because zero wasn't an option.
