Engineering Circuit Analysis – William H. Hayt – 7th Edition


The hallmark of this classic text is that it focuses on the student, it is written so that students can teach the science of circuit analysis to themselves.

The conditions are clearly defined, the basic material appears at the beginning of each chapter and is explained carefully and in detail; and numerical examples are used to introduce and suggest general results. Simple problems appear throughout each chapter, while the most difficult problems appear at the end of the chapters, following the order of presentation of the text material.

This introduction and repetition result as a major impetus to the learning process.

Hayt’s rich pedagogy supports and encourages the student throughout the text, offering advice and warnings. The full exposition of the subjects is delivered in an informal manner that demonstrates the authors’ conviction that circuit analysis can and should be funny.
