## Description

Learning to analyze electric is like learning to play a musical instrument. Most people take music lessons as a starting point. Then, they become proficient through practice, practice, and more practice. Lessons on circuit are provided by your instructor and this textbook. Proficiency in circuit analysis can only be obtained through practice. Take advantage of the many opportunities throughout this to practice, practice, and practice. In the end, you’ll be thankful you did.

Circuit is not only fundamental to the entire breadth of electrical and engineering—the concepts studied here extend far beyond those boundaries. For this reason, it remains the starting point for many future engineers who wish to work in this field. Basic Engineering Circuit has long been regarded as the most dependable textbook. Irwin and Nelms has long been known for providing the best supported learning for otherwise intimidated by the subject matter.

In this new 11th edition, Irwin and Nelms continue to develop the most complete set of pedagogical available and thus provide the highest level of support for students entering into this subject. Irwin and Nelms trademark -centered learning design focuses on helping students complete the connection between theory and practice. Key concepts are explained clearly and illustrated by detailed worked examples. These are then followed by Learning Assessments, which allow students to work similar problems and check their results against the answers provided.
