9780750649896: Electrical Circuit Theory and Technology

Electrical Circuit Theory and Technology is a fully comprehensive text for courses in electrical and electronic principles, circuit theory and electrical technology. The coverage takes students from the fundamentals of the subject, up to and including first degree level. Thus, this book is ideal for students studying engineering for the first time, and suitable for pre-degree vocational courses, especially where progression to higher levels of study is likely.

John Bird's approach, based on 700 worked examples supported by over 1000 problems (icluding answers), is ideal for students of a wide range of abilities, and can be worked through at the student's own pace. Theory is kept to a minimum, placing a firm emphasis on problem-solving skills, and making this a thoroughly practical introduction to these core subjects in the electrical and electronic engineering curriculum.

The second edition includes new material on semiconductor diodes, transistors and operational amplifiers. The content has been carefully matched to the latest syllabuses (including Edexcel) and typical undergraduate modules.

700 worked examples - 1050 problems - Answers to problems included
Formula sheets - 18 assessment papers (answers not supplied)

Free Tutor Support Material including full worked solutions to the assessment papers featured in the book is available at http://www.bh.com/manuals/0750649895/.
