## Fundamentals of Electric Circuits (5th ed)

### Book Description:

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

This edition retains the **Design a Problem** feature which helps students 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.

### Book Review:

Although excellent in its integration of Pspice and Matlab techniques, including lengthy appendices which show how to apply Pspice and Matlab to AC circuits, FEC is not enough if you are studying electric circuits on your own, for two reasons. One reason is that explanations can often be minimal, with the result that you have to read the text very carefully (and maybe many times) to decipher what the authors are saying; in particular, the authors skip steps both in derivations and in solved problems, and it can be very difficult to figure out what has been done. The other reason is that many of the practice problems within the chapters are overly difficult and leave you with a feeling of frustration and discouragement, rather than confidence that you understand the preceding material. (Nilsson and Riedel’s “Assessment Problems” are almost as bad in this regard.) It would probably be fine as a classroom text where you have an instructor or TA to answer questions.

FEC is organized so that each section of text is followed by a worked-out example problem and then a practice problem with the answer provided. About half of the practice problems are straightforward applications of the methods in the preceding text and the example problem. However, a third to a half of the practice problems require a technique different from the example problem, are more difficult than the practice problem, and sometimes provide an incorrect answer (which is really unforgivable).

If you’re studying circuits with FEC on your own, I’d advise at least getting a copy of Shaum’s “Basic Circuit Analysis (2nd edition),” which is is indispensable for solving more complicated circuit analysis problems, although it does not cover Laplace and Fourier transforms. You should also consider getting a second textbook, such as Nilsson and Riedel. Neither of these textbooks is adequate by itself, but their strengths and weaknesses are often complementary, so what you don’t understand in one text may be better explained in the other. (One exception: the chapters on the Fourier series and the Fourier transform are very hard to follow in both books because of unexplained steps in explanations and worked examples, so if you need to study these topics, you’ll be better off using a Signal Processing textbook.)”Amazon Reader
