- Alexander and Sadiku’s fifth edition of Fundamentals of Electric Circuits continues in the spirit of its successful previous editions, with the objective of presenting circuit analysis in a manner that is clearer, more interesting, and easier to understand than other, more traditional texts. Students are introduced to the sound, six step problem solving methodology in chapter one and are consistently made to apply and practice these steps in practice problems and homework problems throughout the text.
- The six step problem solving methodology is introduced in chapter one and carried throughout the text and media supplements to promote sound problem solving practices.
- The retained Design a Problem feature helps students enhance their design skills by not only solving the problem but asking them to design it. This helps the student more deeply learn the theory while they learn through teaching.
- Each illustrative example is immediately followed by a practice problem and answer to test understanding of the preceding example.
