The present generation of engineering students, used to communicating with text messages on cell phones, neither have the time nor the inclination to read wordy explanations such as those in many contemporary textbooks. They want clear and concise explanations of each topic covered in the book and appropriate justifications of all the assumptions. Today's students know how to obtain relevant information using the Internet, if need be. If we as instructors would like to make certain that a student not only reads the textbook but also benefits from it, we have to become skilled at presenting the material as succinctly and accurately as possible while emphasizing it’s utulity.
The author has written this textbook with the above issues in mind. It is written at a student's level so that a discerning student can read and learn the material with minimum assistance from others. This does not suggest that there is no need for an instructor. The contrary is, in fact, true. The instructor is expected to present the relevant material, such as design examples not covered in the textbook. Augmenting the material in this fashion would make the classroom discussion lively and a truly enjoyable experience for the student.
We would now like to invite you to review this textbook, First Course in Electronics, if you are genuinely looking for an electronic book that provides:
(a) Concise coverage of such topics as operational amplifiers, semiconductor diodes, bipolar-junction transistors, the enhancement MOSFET, and digital circuits;
(b) Straightforward and to-the-point explanation of each topic covered in the textbook;
(c) Many analysis and design examples;
(d) Excellent coverage of both npn and pnp transistors;
(e) Exceptional coverage of both n-channel and p-channel MOSFETs;
(f) Main objectives of each topic;
(g) Review questions and
(h) End-of-chapter problems (many with answers).
