The professor I had chose this book because he saw it had good reviews on Amazon. I was actually a little skeptical in the beginning, but when I bought the book and read it, it was really easy to follow through and understand. I would recommend this to anyone who is trying to teach themselves the basics of electrical circuits. I didn't finish the book, but I do intend to finish/reread it over some break when I don't have other classes to worry about it.

I used this book for Electric Circuit 1 and I am going to use it again in Electric Circuit 2. My professor is Charles K. Alexander, one of the authors of this book.
He said that they have written the book for different type of courses and it has been written in a way that instructors can use it in different ways to teach the fundamentals of Electric Circuits's topics.

In short, the first half of the book is so clear and written in a good way with a lot of examples and solved problems in addition

I read it as course book in my three courses and found it very easy and very very helpful in my understanding of electric circuits. in that time i found it somewhat difficult but now whenever i stuck in any kind of electric circuits problem i use it and most of the time my problem got solved.

I was told that this book would be the best reference I could find on circuit analysis. Well, so far I couldn't find a book on this subject that fits my needs, but this one is certainly far away from it. And also far away from being the best reference on circuit analysis. I found the text so annoying, and there are so many mistakes on the text, on the examples, on the exercises...

Summarising, don't waste your time on it.

Nice book for your introduction to electric circuit. The book provide nice explanation, many useful example, and bunch of challenging problem to solve. Quite easy to understand even though English is not your first language.

This is the course textbook for the class I'm teaching this summer. Although I haven't really gone through it in detail, it's much better than other introductory circuits texts that I've seen.

I really liked it.It was simple and understandable.The best of all is that under every example there was a practice problem with its solution.

Couldn't say I LIKED it, being selected as the textbook in class, though it still helped a lot in my understanding in electric circuit behaviors.
