Now in its fourth edition, Introduction to Electronics continues to offer its readers a complete introduction to basic electricity/electronics principles with emphasis on hands-on application of theory. Expanded discussion of Capacitive AC, Inductive AC, and Resonance Circuits is just the beginning! For the first time, MultiSIMŽ problems have been integrated into Introduction to Electronics, providing even greater opportunities to apply basic electronics principles and develop critical thinking skills by building, analyzing, and troubleshooting DC and AC circuits. In addition, this electron flow, algebra-based electricity/electronics primer now includes coverage of topics such as surface mount components, Karnaugh maps, and microcontrollers that are becoming increasingly important in today's world. Introduction to Electronics is the ideal choice for readers with no prior electronics experience who seek a basic background in DC and AC circuits that aligns closely with today's business and industry requirements. Objectives are clearly stated at the beginning of each brief, yet highly focused chapter to focus attention on key points. In addition, all-new photographs are used throughout the book and detailed, step-by-step examples are included to show how math and formulas are used. Chapter-end review questions and summaries ensure mastery, while careers are profiled throughout Introduction to Electronics, 4th Edition to stimulate the reader's interest in further study and/or potential employment in electronics or related fields.

This is the main textbook for a class that I am taking. It is excellent, the class seems to be almost word for word with the book. I am not without knowledge of electronics. If I were this would still be the book to read.
