Master the fundamentals of electric circuits with Kang’s ELECTRIC CIRCUITS. You learn the basics of electric circuits with common design practices and simulations as the book presents clear stepbystep examples, practical exercises, and problems. Each chapter includes several examples and problems related to circuit design with answers for oddnumbered questions so you can further prepare yourself with selfguided study and practice. ELECTRIC CIRCUITS covers everything from DC circuits and AC circuits to Laplace transformed circuits. MATLAB® scripts for certain examples give you an alternate method to solve circuit problems, check answers, and reduce laborious derivations and calculations. This edition also provides PSpice® and Simulink® examples to demonstrate electric circuit simulations.

James S. Kang
Dr. James S. Kang is a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, commonly known as Cal Poly Pomona. Cal Poly Pomona is famous for laboratoryoriented, handson approach for engineering education. Most of the electrical and computer engineering courses offered at Cal Poly Pomona include a companion laboratory course. Students design, build, and test practical circuits in the laboratory based on the theory they learned in the lecture course. ELECTRIC CIRCUITS incorporates this philosophy.

CHAPTER SUMMARIES AND REVIEWS HIGHLIGHT KEY POINTS. Each chapter begins with a chapter summary that emphasizes the key points that follow in the chapter. Every chapter then ends with a concise review of the fundamental concepts that the author presented.

SIMPLE, INTUITIVE PRESENTATION CLEARLY EXPLAINS CONCEPTS. The author presents topics using a straightforward, intuitive approach followed by memorable examples and practical exercises. The examples and exercises reinforce learning by starting with simple questions and then moving to more challenging questions as students gain confidence. The solutions to the questions used in the examples are detailed so that students can check their understanding.

MATLAB® SCRIPTS HIGHLIGHT ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR SOLVING CIRCUIT PROBLEMS. This efficient tool is provided for certain examples as an alternate method to solve circuit problems. MATLAB® is a tool that can be used effectively in checking answers and reducing laborious derivations and calculations.

EXAMPLES UTILIZE PSPICE® AND SIMULINK® TO DEMONSTRATE CIRCUIT SIMULATION. Each chapter includes examples that provide students with handson practice using these professional tools.

ENDOFCHAPTER PROBLEMS ENSURE STUDENT UNDERSTANDING. Each chapter concludes with a set of problems for students. Answers for selected questions appear in the appendix so students may use them for selfstudy. The full set of answers is available for you, the instructor.

CAREFULLY REVIEWED TEST BANK SAVES PREPARATION TIME AND CHECKS MASTERY OF MATERIAL. A test bank with accompanying solutions is provided for your convenience.
