Fundamental of Electric Circuits – Charles Alexander, Matthew Sadiku – 5th Edition


Alexander and Sadiku’s fifth edition of Fundamentals of continues in the spirit of its successful previous editions, with the objective of presenting in a manner that is clearer, more interesting, and easier to understand than other, more traditional texts.

are introduced to the sound, six-step problem solving methodology in chapter one, and are consistently made to apply and practice these steps in practice problems and homework problems throughout the text. A balance of theory, worked examples and extended examples, practice problems, and real-world applications, combined with over 468 new or changed homework problems for the fifth edition and robust media offerings, renders the fifth edition the most comprehensive and student-friendly approach to circuit analysis.

This edition retains the Design a Problem feature which helps develop their design skills by having the student develop the question as well as the solution. There are over 100 Design a Problem exercises integrated into the problem sets in the book.

This is a great teaching book on electric circuits and is ideal for self study. However having answers to the end of chapters problems would have been great.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
