    So I'm pretty well finished with all of my 300 level courses. Basically, I've got all the basics. I was wondering if you guys think there is anything that is not usually taught that I should teach myself. I've got some free time this summer.

    Any ideas?

    Designing Digital Filters, by Charles S. Williams is a fun and useful book.

    Semiconductor Device Modeling with SPICE, edited by Antognetti and Massobrio is a very good book if you are interested in semiconductors.

    High-Speed Digital Design, A Handbook of Black Magic, by Howard Johnson and Martin Graham is a very useful book if you are going to do much practical circuit deisign.

    What areas of EE interest you the most? What kind of classes do you have coming up next year?

    Have you taken any probability courses that is geared towards EE? Probability can be very useful down the line.

    EE is a huge field. Do you have any particular interests? We could tailor our advice to those interests.
