The first edition of Electric Circuits, an introductory circuits text, was published in 1983. It included 100 worked examples and about 600 problems. It did not include a student workbook, supplements for PSpice or MultiSim, or any web support. Support for instructors was limited to a solution manual for the problems and enlarged copies of many text figures, suitable for making transparencies.
Much has changed in the 31 years since Electric Circuits first appeared, and during that time this text has evolved to better meet the needs of both students and their instructors. As an example, the text now includes about 150 worked examples, about 1850 problems, and extensive supplements and web content. The tenth edition is designed to revise and improve the material presented in the text, in its supplements, and on the web.Yet the fundamental goals of the text are unchanged.These goals are:
• To build an understanding of concepts and ideas explicitly in terms of previous learning. Students are constantly challenged by the need to layer new concepts on top of previous concepts they may still be struggling to master.This text provides an important focus on helping students understand how new concepts are related to and rely upon concepts previously presented.
• To emphasize the relationship between conceptual understanding and problemsolving approaches. Developing problemsolving skills continues to be the central challenge in a firstyear circuits course. In this text we include numerous Examples that present problemsolving techniques followed by Assessment Problems that enable students to test their mastery of the material and techniques introduced. The problemsolving process we illustrate is based on concepts rather than the use of rote procedures. This encourages students to think about a problem before attempting to solve it.
• To provide students with a strong foundation of engineering practices.
There are limited opportunities in a firstyear circuit analysis course to introduce students to realistic engineering experiences.We continue to take advantage of the opportunities that do exist by including problems and examples that use realistic component values and represent realizable circuits.We include many problems related to the Practical Perspective problems that begin each chapter. We also include problems intended to stimulate the students’ interest in engineering, where the problems require the type of insight typical of a practicing engineer.
