Summary

Summary

This introductory text covers basic electronics and the behavior of passive components, circuit analysis and systematic troubleshooting. The analytical methods used are strongly based on Ohm's and Kirchoff's Laws. Mathematics are used for analysis, but only after a solid, intuitive understanding of circuit or device operation has been established. With a heavy emphasis on critical thinking over rote memorization, and the coverage of state of the art technology, this text truly prepares students to use and apply the knowledge they acquire.
