Acclaimed for its strong emphasis on troubleshooting, this full-color text provides a clear introduction to DC/AC circuits supported by an abundance of exercises, examples, and illustrations - empowering students with the knowledge, insight, and problem-solving experience they need to step out of the classroom and into a job. Fully supported by an instructional visual program that includes photographs, illustrations, tables and charts, includes specially designed, hands-on 'Technology Theory Into Practice' (TECH Tips) sections linking principles to real world practices, and limits the use of mathematics to only those concepts that are needed for understanding. *Companion Website- - FREE on-line study guide prepared by Ron Reis of LA Valley College. Includes multiple choice, circuit analysis problems, and Pspice Computer Analysis sections. - On-line EWB tutorials coordinated with the chapters in the text. *Electronics Workbench (EWB) CD-ROM packaged with every text. - Includes over 100 troubleshooting and analysis circuits simulated in EWB and referenced in the text problem sets. - Free demonstration version of EWB Version 5.X. - Full student version of EWB a
