Fundamental of Electric Circuits – Charles Alexander, Matthew Sadiku – 3rd Edition


Electrical Engineering is an exciting and challenging course. The primary objective of this is to present in a manner more interesting and easier to understand. The authors have been successful in doing this by means of their special chapter openers and summaries, unique step-by-step problem solving methodology, friendly style and variety of problems. The computer given in the also enable the students gain a sound about the circuits.

Over 300 new homework problems have been added to the new edition, with over 1800 total problems provided in the text.

“Enhancing Your Skills” and “Enhancing Your Career” chapter openers provide discussions about how to enhance skills that contribute to successful problem-solving, and career-oriented talks on a subdiscipline of electrical engineering to give students a sense of the real-world applications of electrical engineering.

Capturing Integrated Design Environment (KCIDE) software provided on the Online Learning Center leads students through end of chapter problems using the six-step problem solving method, and keeps a record for how problems are solved so students can share and check their work. An appendix on KCIDE has been added to the text.
