Having a wealth of new problems to assign and work is a key to success in any circuits course. Both students and instructors want to know how the generalized techniques presented in a first-year circuit analysis course relate to problems faced by practicing engineers.

Electric Circuits,Eighth Edition features a new design,a four-color format, and 80%of chapter problems have been updated. In the midst of these changes, the book retains the goals that have made it a best-seller: 1) To build an understanding of concepts and ideas explicitly in terms of previous learning; 2) To emphasize the relationship between conceptual understanding and problem solving approaches; 3) To provide readers with a strong foundation of engineering practices. Chapter topics include Circuit Variables; Circuit Elements; Simple Resistive Circuits; Techniques of Circuit Analysis; The Operational Amplifier; Inductors, Capacitors, and Mutual Inductance; Response of First-Order RL and RC Circuits; Natural and Step Responses of RLC Circuits; Sinusoidal Steady-State Analysis; and more. For anyone interested in circuit analysis.

I got this book for my circuits class. I'll be completely honest and say that I used the physical book 1 or 2 times.
This 9th and 10th edition of this book can be found online for free. Full book! Also the solution manual to both books are on there as well.
Pretty much everyone in my class had downloaded the digital version and used that, as it was much more convenient than needing to buy and carry the book around.
I'm only posting this information because I know many students that struggle to pay for their classes/books and hopefully this helps save you some money!

I noticed when I read the other reviews that many bad reviews came from first-year circuits students, while the good reviews came from those who already had some circuits knowledge. The assessments from both were pretty accurate.
Note: This is calculus-based circuit theory, basic calculus knowledge is assumed.
The good: This book is one of the most comprehensive treatments of fundamental circuit analysis that I have seen. Most chapters are fairly well-written. It is an excellent resource as a reference or as a review, and it is a book you will go back to again and again as you proceed in your studies. If you learn everything in this book, you will have a very good foundation in circuit theory.
The bad: In the first few chapters there are a few basics that are not well-covered or are out of order (knowledge is assumed of a subject introduced some pages later). If you are using this book for your first-ever exposure to circuit theory, you will benefit from reading a little basic circuit theory elsewhere before your class starts.

A great introduction to electric circuits. There are plenty of examples and many problem sets at the end of each chapter. Understanding it my take a few readings but that is true of any engineering concept. I would recommend to anyone interested in circuit analysis since it covers a board range of topics.

Quick delivery.
I bought it new and unfortunately it didnt come with the access code. Read the fine print and it said that there's a different version that's 40 dollars more that comes with the access code but they're out of stock.

Required textbook with some good treatment on many introductory topics. Some topics could use better treatment but overall it is a pretty good introductory text (there are much worse). It is a pretty good reference so I kept it after the course was completed.

As a student, I found this to be among the most helpful of the textbooks I own. The authors do a very good job explaining the basic methods of analysis for electrical circuits. It is very easy to take the techniques taught in this book and adopt them to use in circuits containing components such as transistors, diodes, and transformers which are BEYOND its scope. The versatility here is really great. This said, the one caveat I have with it is that there is not much specifics in it. The general methods are covered, but anything specific to certain parts and types of circuits will really have to be found elsewhere. That being said, it is great for anyone with a serious interest in the ANALYSIS of circuits. Not so much if you have a specific area of interest in mind, as its very general.

Where can I begin about this book? I know, how about a waste of money; no, I think a waste of time; no better yet, this book is the problem with the education system if this is what is the standard or is what is accepted as normal!! HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No explanations, no examples that relate to the homework problems and, no useful techniques or approaches to problem solving!!!

This book is trying so hard to dazzle you with it's assumptions and leaps of mathematical prowess, you get lost in the BS!!! It condescends, frustrates, obfuscates, and downright insults you with the lack of direction, explanation or clarity, and misses the mark of teaching altogether!!!! You end up thinking you don't know material that you know that you already know!!

The authors of this text must have been locked away in some research lab somewhere, bored to death and came up with a brilliant idea!! They must have made a bet with each other to see who could come up with a way to present material in a more indirect and unapproachable way. Well guys, news flash you BOTH WON!

I can't say enough what a waste of time and energy this book has been for me. There are hours of my life I will never get back because of this book's deliberate effort to make it that way!!!

Avoid this book at all costs!! Talk to your department head and your professors, and let them read some of the other reviews!!!
I just finished a 1st semester circuits course using this textbook. The other reviews are spot on. In reading the reviews, I had a back up plan and purchased "Fundamentals of Electric Circuits" (FEC) as a backup textbook. Well, that book became my primary. You may not truly realize what this book (Nilsson) is missing until you read another textbook. I often felt like I was missing information to adequately comprehend a topic or to solve problems. Then I would read FEC and those missing pieces were filled in, with better circuit examples to learn from. As other reviewers mentioned, in Nilsson I often found myself reading ahead to get information to solve problems earlier in the book. In addition, there is a huge disconnect between the chapter examples and the homework problems. I understand homework problems should be challenging, require one to think out of the box, not just plug-and-chug, but this is a little too much in this book. In addition, not EVERY odd# problem has an answer (no even ones either). Therefore, I often found myself simulating circuits to get answers (not necessarily a bad thing). And I would not waste your money on the supplementary texts (Study guide, Multisim guide, etc). They are just about worthless.

Conclusion: Use this book if you have to (i.e. you have to do the homework problems and turn them in), but if you have the means, get a second book to study from, do problems from. Then sell this book back when you are done with it and keep the other book.
