Description
For courses in Electrical Engineering.

The #1 title in its market, Electrical Engineering: Principles and Applications helps students learn electrical-engineering fundamentals with minimal frustration. Its goals are to present basic concepts in a general setting, to show students how the principles of electrical engineering apply to specific problems in their own fields, and to enhance the overall learning process. This book covers circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics at a level appropriate for either electrical-engineering students in an introductory course or non-majors in a survey course. A wide variety of pedagogical features stimulate student interest and engender awareness of the material’s relevance to their chosen profession. The only essential prerequisites are basic physics and single-variable calculus. The 7th Edition features technology and content updates throughout the text.

About the Book

  • Adaptive Follow-Up Assignments are based on each student's past performance on his/her course work to date, including homework, tests, and quizzes. These provide additional coaching and targeted practice as needed, so students can master the material.
  • The popular Practice Tests at the end of each chapter have been expanded. Answers for the Practice Tests appear in Appendix D and complete solutions are available online in the Student Solutions Manual
  • Many end-of-chapter problems (approximately half) have been replaced or modified.
  • New examples have been added in Chapters 1 through 7.
  • Coverage of MATLAB and the Symbolic Toolbox for network analysis in Chapters 2 through 6.
  • Coverage of computers, microcontrollers and computer-based instrumentation has been merged from two chapters into Chapter 8.
  • Appendix C has been modified to keep up with new developments in the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.
