WHAT THIS BOOK IS FOR
Students have generally found electric circuits a difficult subject to understand and learn. Despite the publication of hundreds of textbooks in this field, each one intended to provide an improvement over previous textbooks, students of electric circuits continue to remain perplexed as a result of numerous subject areas that must be remembered and correlated when solving problems. Various interpretations of electric circuits terms also contribute to the difficulties of mastering the subject.
In a study of electric circuits, REA found the following basic reasons underlying the inherent difficulties of electric circuits:
No systematic rules of analysis were ever developed to follow in a step-by-step manner to solve typicallyencountered problems. This results from numerous different conditions and principles involved in a problem that leads to many possible different solution methods. To prescribe a set of rules for each of the possible variations would involve an enormous number of additional steps, making this task more burdensome than solving the problem directly due to the expectation of much trial and error.
Current textbooks normally explain a given principle in a few pages written by an electric circuits professional who has insight into the subject matter not shared by others. These explanations are often written in an abstract manner that causes confusion as to the principle's use and application. Explanations then are often not sufficiently detailed or extensive enough to make the reader aware of the wide range of applications and different aspects of the prin
