The second edition of the highly successful Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering is thoroughly expanded and updated. The text is divided into four parts: circuits, electronics, digital systems, and electromagnetics. Although it delves in depth into each of these topics, the text represents more than your basic survey of the basics of electrical engineering. A solid understanding of the fundamental principles on which modern electrical engineering is based is also provided. This edition includes a chapter on circuit analysis software SPICE, with a detailed discussion of the PC version known as PSPICE (from MicroSim Corp.). Numerous drill exercises have been added to this new edition, reinforcing ideas presented in the examples. There are over 1,000 end-of-chapter problems. This text is suitable for a variety of electrical engineering courses. It can be used as a text for an introduction to electrical engineering for both majors and non-majors or both, or can be split and the various chapters utilized for an introduction to circuits course, a first electronics course, or for a course on digital electronics and logic design.

Ambitious, but lacking
By Tyler Soelberg
This book is a good primer for anybody wanting to get into electrical engineering or start discovering and understanding electronics. But, it's still difficult to follow, easy to get lost, ie - not a great textbook. The information is all there, but not the most cohesive. It's almost as if it tries to cover everything, but dumb it down for the least common denominator, er, um, student. What plays out are lacking half-explanations of LaPlace transforms, a few pages of handwaving for some key principles (transistor models, anyone?), and, due to poor book design, examples that run into the actual text.
It tries to teach by going through examples, which would be fine if what was trying to be taught was somewhere expounded in a more thorough theoretical form in the text, which it's not.
What amazes me is how big this book is, given what I just mentioned above. They had plenty of pages to fill, and somehow didn't fit in all the stuff they should have.
Still, you can learn a lot from the book!
