Intended for DC/AC Circuits course. This unusually in-depth text on the fundamentals of electronic technology hones in on core 'choice' topics to ensure a solid foundation for growth, and incorporates a system of useful and effective learning aids that have proven extremely successful in Paynter's popular Introduction to Electronic Devices and Circuits, 4/e. Focusing on maintaining student interest and promoting understanding at all times, it features a functional, four-colour design, and comes with a well-designed Electronic Workbench Application Problems disk for additional practice.

  • Gives more coverage to the topical areas that most college programs actually use, providing a more streamlined, but more substantial introduction to electric circuits.
  • Models the texts framework from the authors popular devices book, with a fully-integrated, effective system of learning tools that include:
  • Performance-based objectives provide a handy overview of the chapter organization and a road-map to student learning.
  • Objective identifiers in the margins cross-reference the objectives with the chapter material, helping students to quickly locate the material that enables them to fulfill a given objective.
  • Margin notes include a running glossary of new terms, notes that highlight the differences between theory and practice, and brief reminders of p
