This text is designed for the standard introductory electric circuits course taught in virtually all electrical engineering departments. This text covers all of the standard topics in a traditional order. The unique strengths of the projects are that: * Unique pedagogical features including case studies and real-world problems are the strongest aspects of this book. * Extensive use of modern computer packages (PSpice, MATLAB, etc.) for problem solutions. * More than 1000 end of chapter exercises are included. * The package for the book will include a SPICE Manual, a MATLAB guide, Solutions Manual with Transparency Masters, Laboratory Manual, and Acetates. DeCarlo and Lin have tuaght the circuits course at Purdue since 1986. The book grew from this course. The first edition was published in two volumes by Prentice Hall in 1995. According to DeCarlo, first year sales were 5,500 copies for the first volume. Sales to date have been a little over 11,000 copies. DeCarlo and Lin have exercised a clause in their contract that allows them to break free from their publisher in the event that the publisher is sold. Prentice Hall has of course been acquired by Pearson. Adel Sedra is acquainted with Pen-Min Lin and had encouraged these authors to sign with Saunders when he was their Series advisor.
