CIRCUIT ANALYSIS: THEORY AND PRACTICE, Fifth Edition, provides a thorough, engaging introduction to the theory, design, and analysis of electrical circuits. Comprehensive without being overwhelming, this reader-friendly text combines a detailed exploration of key electrical principles with an innovative, practical approach to the tools and techniques of modern circuit analysis. Coverage includes topics such as direct and alternating current, capacitance, inductance, magnetism, simple transients, transformers, Fourier series, methods of analysis, and more. Conceptual material is supported by abundant illustrations and diagrams throughout the text, as well as hundreds of step-by-step examples, thought-provoking exercises, and hands-on activities, making it easy for students to master and apply even complex material.

Now thoroughly updated with new and revised content, illustrations, examples, and activities, the Fifth Edition also features powerful new interactive learning resources. Nearly 200 files for use in MultiSim 11 allow students to learn in a full-featured virtual workshop, complete with switches, multimeters, oscilloscopes, signal generators, and more. Designed to provide the knowledge, skills, critical thinking ability, and hands-on experience students need to confidently analyze and optimize circuits, this proven text provides ideal preparation for career success in electricity, electronics, or engineering fields.

    • MultiSim and PSpice are integrated in examples throughout the text, with step-by-step instructions and full-color screen images to help students construct circuits, connect meters, and test circuit operation using sophisticated computer simulations.
    • More than 1,200 full-color photographs, diagrams, and illustrations help clarify and expand on core chapter material, making even complex concepts easier to grasp and providing outstanding support for visual learners.
    • Nearly 1,600 practice problems, learning checks, and end-of-chapter exercises encourage students to engage actively with the material, while allowing them to accurately assess their understanding and identify areas for additional reinforcement.
    • The text incorporates calculus as optional material to provide additional depth and detail, but it is introduced gradually and presented carefully to avoid intimidating students with a weaker mathematics background.
    • The Fifth Edition has been thoroughly updated with new and revised content, illustrations, examples, exercises, and activities throughout the text to ensure chapter material and learning tools are current, relevant, and engaging.
    • Powerful new interactive learning resources now support the text, including nearly 200 files for use in MultiSim 11 to allow instructors to create a sophisticated virtual workshop--complete with switches, multimeters, oscilloscopes, signal generators, and more--to engage students and bring circuit theory to life.
    • The text and support materials have been updated to reflect current versions of both MultiSim (Version 11.0) and PSpice (16.3) simulation software, allowing instructors to easily prepare interactive lessons and activities, while helping students gain familiarity with the latest tools and technology used by modern electrical and engineering professionals.
