From the Back Cover

Master electrical engineering and ace your exams with this easy-to-follow guide that pumps up your problem-solving skills and reduces the time you need to spend studying!

Electrical engineering students love Schaum's--the first edition of this book was a major bestseller--and this new guide will show you why!

Basic Electrical Engineering lets you focus on the problems that are the core of electrical engineering. This guide takes you straight to the heart of EE. It simplifies your life and cuts your study time by eliminating the extraneous material you don't really need to know that clutters up so many textbooks.

As you study along at your own pace, this study guide shows you step by step how to solve the kind of problems you're going to find on your exams. It gives you hundreds of completely worked problems with full solutions on the information that you really need to know. Hundreds of additional problems let you test your skills, then check the answers. So if you want to get a firm handle on electrical engineering--whether to ace your course or to build a solid basis for future study--there's no better tool than Schaum's.

Schaum's is the premier college course outline--the one that's been trusted by generations of students--the one that's sold over 30 million copies! This guide can be used as a supplement, to reinforce and strengthen the work you do with your class text. (It works well with any electrical engineering textbook). But it is so comprehensive that it can even be used alone as a complete electrical engineering independent study course!

3Im not surprised this has not been updated.
By Eric Frei
Basically, all of the reviews for this study guide is spot on. Its well formatted however, I would say this is a true to form Schaum's guidebook in its style. This is where the quality disparity begins however. There are some mistakes in calculation and explanation, at least if one is a beginner or college engineering freshman, would be incorrigible to understand why its wrong. This book is not written as a helping guide, rather its flow is similar to a semesters simplified syllabus. In other words, if you go in knowing these simple problems you will be ill prepared for an engineering exam which are undoubtedly worded the same and far more complicated.

It is as if a professor just drills the basics and does not elaborate on purpose, theory or usefulness in design. If you can get a seniors notes from class from a previous year, they may be equivalent to what this book has to offer.
