Summary Understanding AC Circuits covers the second half of a basic electronic circuits theory course, integrating theory and laboratory practice into a single text. Several key features in each unit make this an excellent teaching tool: objectives, key terms, self-tests, lab experiments, and a unit exam. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated by the authors to reflect the latest information on electronics. Understanding AC Circuits is designed with the electronics beginner and student in mind. The authors use a practical approach exposing the reader to the systems that are.
