A magnificent book. . . easy to follow, clear, practical,
complete." * Mihai Antonescu, John Abbott College *
The general layout and structure of the text is conducive to autonomous learning. The shorter chapter design provides a 'mentally digestible' quantity of learning that is more likely to fit in a student's available schedule, thus helping them avoid the perils of procrastination." * Denard Lynch, University of Saskatchewan *
The organization of the book allows the reader to gradually acquire concepts. It is visually appealing, and the concepts are easily found throughout." * Laura Curiel, Lakehead University *
The major strength of Electric Circuits is the variation in difficulty level of the assigned problems at the end of each chapter section." * Terry Moschandreou, Fanshawe College *
