As the title states, I am looking for recomendations, and explanations as to why it was a good book. Some current suggestions I have had is by Robert L. Boylestad. Thanks in advance!
niehaoma said:I just used Nilsson and Riedel for a begginer circuits course. It was sub par to say the least. I used "Fundamental of Electric Circuits" as a backup, and found it explained topics with increased clarity, providing pertinent examples to supplement theory and technique.

There are a few key factors to consider when choosing an introductory circuit analysis textbook. First, make sure it covers all the necessary topics for your course. Look for clear explanations, relevant examples, and practice problems. Additionally, consider the author's credentials and experience in the field.
There are many great options for introductory circuit analysis textbooks, and the best one for you will depend on your individual learning style and course requirements. Some popular choices include "Electric Circuits" by James W. Nilsson and Susan A. Riedel, "Fundamentals of Electric Circuits" by Charles K. Alexander and Matthew N. O. Sadiku, and "Introductory Circuit Analysis" by Robert L. Boylestad and Louis Nashelsky.
Diagrams and visual aids are crucial for understanding circuit analysis concepts, as they help to illustrate the flow of current and voltage in a circuit. Look for textbooks that have clear and well-labeled diagrams, as well as visual aids such as circuit simulations and circuit diagrams.
Introductory circuit analysis textbooks assume a basic understanding of algebra and trigonometry, as well as a working knowledge of fundamental physics concepts such as Ohm's law and Kirchhoff's laws. Some textbooks may also cover more advanced topics, so be sure to check the prerequisites or ask your instructor for guidance.
Many textbooks now come with online resources, such as interactive quizzes and simulations, that can enhance your learning experience. Some textbooks also have accompanying solution manuals or study guides. You can also search for additional resources such as instructional videos or practice problems online to supplement your textbook learning.
