Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Comprehensive, up-to-date, and problem-oriented, Introduction to Electrical Engineering is ideal for courses that introduce nonelectrical engineering majors to the language and principles of electrical engineering. It can also be used in undergraduate survey courses taken by electrical

engineering majors. Covering a uniquely broad range of topics, this text discusses the underlying concepts and methods behind various electrical engineering applications--from consumer gadgets and biomedical electronics to sophisticated instrumentation systems, computers, and electric machinery.

Sarma highlights basic physical concepts while also emphasizing mathematical techniques, motivating students to learn the material in a logical sequence beginning with physical principles and extending to processes, modeling, using analytical techniques, and finally, designing.
