HASH(0xa4ffe738) out of 5 stars The best I've ever seen Jan. 22 2009
By Salacious - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This textbook is far and away the best I've ever seen on the subject. I wholeheartedly agree with the previous review, and would like to add a few comments of my own. This book, as a stand-alone text, is outstanding. If you combine this book, the lab project manual(sold separately-around $70), and invest around $50 in a Multisim software program(10.1 is the newest version right now), you've just given yourself the basis of an electronics education that will serve you well for the rest of your life. Multisim is basically a circuit prototyping and analysis software package. It has a 3-d breadboard where you can hook up circuits(with around 16,000 different components to choose from) and see how/if they work, analyze and troubleshoot them, etc. Pretty much anything you could do on a breadboard, you can do on Multisim. This book comes with a disk that gives you ready made circuits to open with Multisim to experiment on, and it walks you through doing so. It's unbelievable. The lab manual gives you a ton of actual circuit building experiments to do on an real breadboard...again walking you through. The book itself starts assuming no previous knowledge of electronics, and takes you up through transistors, oscillators, op amps, etc. It has a plethora of examples that are worked out step by step, with practice problems coming every couple of pages, and then chapter review problem at the end of every chapter...all with the answers at the back of the book so that you can check your progress. I've never taken the time to review ANYTHING my whole life, but this book has been such a blessing for me, I just had to. I'm teaching myself electronics, in preparation of starting an Electronics Engineering program at Devry this spring. I just wish I would've bought this book earlier, instead of some others I bought. HIGHLY recommended!
HASH(0xa3284b4c) out of 5 stars Best book for foundations Aug. 30 2014
By Kevin D. Monroe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Of the 3 electronic books I ordered, this one is definitely the best. Easy to understand and laid out well. For an introduction, it's better than "Practical Electronics for Inventors" and vastly superior to the kindergarten style of "Getting Started i Electronics". I ordered a cheap edition from 2003. I figured that electronics at my level hadn't
changed that much in the last decade.

Since this was a required textbook for school, I am making good use of it. The lessons and material is well organized, making it easier to study out of.
