For the purposes of drawing only, you could use xcircuit (free). One that does simulations also is Circuit Maker, I'm pretty sure they have a free student version.

Had that lab a year ago, we used Electronics Workbench, surprisingly I found it very easy to use despite is it is very heavy weight. Version 4 is very nice to use, but it is not free, I suggest you ask the lab assistant to lend you a copy or use the computer at the faculty that have the installed software.

I recommend Electronics workbench too, I been using it for 3 years now.
very good , and easy to learn.
However if you want something more complicated and that will do precise circuit simulation you'll need OrCad..

Can u suggest me some program that transforming schematic to circuit board. I am learning Protel, but that is too complicated.
Please gave me some program that is easy to learn.

Whats wrong with Ultiboard? I believe it comes as part of the EW package.

LTSpice/SwCAD III is a charm. The user group has some awesome files and tutorials.

They had some free seminars in New York as part of the "LTspice World Tour 2007", but I missed all of them :( It would have been awesome to hear Mike Engelhardt speak.

I think it is the best freebie out there for circuits.
