User Review - Flag as inappropriate

Though very organized and well illustrated, this book lacks concise summaries of information and has a lengthy dialog. As a reference book, the examples are often of poor quality and do not reflect the questions at the end of the chapters. Unfortunately, this book was required for class. Make sure to keep a circuits book close at hand for reference if you must use this.
