Book Description


style="margin:0px;"> For undergraduate introductory or survey courses in electrical engineering

style="margin:0px;"> A clear introduction to electrical engineering fundamentals


style="margin:0px;"> Electrical Engineering: Principles and Applications, 6e 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. Circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics are covered. A wide variety of pedagogical features stimulate student interest and engender awareness of the material’s relevance to their chosen profession.


style="margin:0px;"> NEW: This edition is now available with MasteringEngineering, an innovative online program created to emulate the instructor’s office—hour environment, guiding students through engineering concepts from Electrical Engineering with self-paced individualized coaching.


style="margin:0px;"> Note: If you are purchasing the standalone text or electronic version, MasteringEngineering does not come automatically packaged with the text. To purchase MasteringEngineering, please visit: or you can purchase a package of the physical text + MasteringEngineering by searching the Pearson Higher Education website. Mastering is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.

3International edition problems =/= us edition problems
By HermitCrab#41108
The International edition's problems are different from the normal edition's problems. The actual content in the chapters is seemingly identical to the normal 5th edition. If the author made any changes to the chapters from edition to edition, it is hardly noticeable.

There are also no solutions to problems in the back, but there are solutions to the 'practice tests' at the end of each chapter. There are a few examples in the chapters and it seems to be about 1 example per section. The chapters seem to focus more on the conceptual aspects and deriving equations. A problem/solution book would be a great supplement to this text (check out the Schaum's series).

2with so many good books on introductory electrical engineering
This book is barely ok...with so many good books on introductory electrical engineering, I wouldn't use this one. The explanations in the book are very superficial. I also do not like how it's laid out. It explains FETs *before* describing BJT's.

5Very helpful textbook for my circuit analysis class
By Jose Caballero
The book was in great condition as expected. I got it used but looks almost like new. I got it for school and it still had the instructional CD attached to it untouched. So far for school it has been very helpful. Has lots of good material and the CD contain more examples. Also the answer to the problems in the book are not in the back of the textbook like others, they are actually in the CDs that it comes with. And its not all problems just some.
