Book Description

Rizzoni provides a solid overview of the electrical engineering discipline that is especially geared toward the many non-electrical engineering students who take this course. The hallmark feature of the text is its liberal use of practical applications to illustrate important principles. The applications come from every field of engineering and feature exciting technologies such as Ohio State’s world-record setting electric car. The appeal to non-EE’s is further heightened by such special features as the book’s Focus on Measurement sections, Focus on Methodology sections, and Make the Connection sidebars.

1fifth edition
By T. Foster
We have only made it through some of chapter three, and in the dozen problems that we've had, we have found nearly half a dozen errors. Misprinted subscripts on prob. 3.17, random arrows(in the middle of a circuit on 3.3), lack of needed values (3.1--it's 1 Ohm), and then the outright wrong(3.17 asks for the resistance through a nonexistant 40-Ohm resistor when there is nothing above 3 Ohms). Don't buy the book; the errors are still ridiculous. And then the author plugs himself in manyof the pictures in the first chapter ("courtesy of Giorgio Rizzoni"). I reccomend buying the older edition and borrowing someone else's if you need the 5th edition problems. This book was a waste of money.

1Terrible Textbook
By Tim Duggan
Its a really confusing text book. I would just be confused after spending hours reading a chapter, and then I would google the topic and understand it in about 5mins on some publicly hosted site. Just don't read this text book. If you're assigned this text book, get the pdf for doing homework problems, and learn the concepts elsewhere. The text seems intentionally confusing. I really hate this text book, and I will end up with a B or possibly even a C in my Circuits class. I'm normally an A student.

Luckily Amazon has an awesome return policy and I returned it after trying to read two different chapters in this text book.

2Would not recommend
By Nimrodel
Terrible textbook. I took a class for mechanical and chemical engineers that used this book, and it was all-around useless for everyone I knew. It didn't make a good introductory textbook to the subject, even for those with some engineering background. Would not recommend.
