Reviewer Comments

We are delighted with the technical reviewers’ reports we have received about the book. Included is a sampling of our favorites:

Motivation

“The presentation is very relevant to today’s students. Historical timeline, etc, is also very well done. There are many well-thought examples to illustrate points and to excite students.”
” Introductory circuits is relatively “dry” material, showing students exciting areas that they could be working towards is very helpful. These tech briefs are much more modern than most current texts. ”

“The step-by-step solution procedures are a very positive attribute.”

Examples and Exercises

“I found the integration of up-to-date real-world circuits into the examples to be a very positive feature of the book. Most circuits books that I am familiar with do not.”

“An advantage of this text though is the more diverse and more challenging end-of-chapter problems which should help students to elevate their proficiency in manipulating circuit equations.”

Topics

“This is an excellent introductory chapter for the book, following a natural progression to introduce and define circuits concepts. The section on notation in Chapter 1 is very helpful, many textbooks do not include such a section. The introductory material defining charge and current are very clearly defined, with just the right level of detail.”

“The presentation of nodal and mesh analysis techniques are excellent, a definite improvement over our current textbook!”

“Excellent description on the principle of resistance, with great illustrations of resistivity, temperature sensors, and superconductivity. Good sign convention discussion in KVL section. The equivalent circuit discussion is well presented. The section on nonlinear elements are great! These are very important concepts related to circuits, that are many times ignored in circuits texts.”

“I really thought that the explanations given for the MOSFET and the NMOS, PMOS and CMOS were very well done for the space used in the textbook.”

“This manuscript has described the convolution integral in the clearest manner, and there is really no better way of conveying this concept.”
