Preface to Teach Yourself Algebra for Electric Circuits PDF


Many books can be had on the subject of electric circuits. Some are elementary, requiring little mathematical skills, while others require considerable knowledge of calculus. This book can be considered a compromise, in that it uses no calculus but does make considerable use of algebra.

This includes ordinary algebra and also the special algebras of logic and matrices. All are carefully explained in the text, along with interesting and important applications. The manner in which the book is used will depend of course upon the individual.

Some will wish to start on page 1 and continue on consecutively from that point. Others might want to pick and choose. For instance, on first reading, some might prefer to postpone study of Chapter 11 and jump directly from Chapter 10 to Chapters 12 and 13.

At any rate, I hope that you, as an individual, will find the book interesting and, in the long run, a valuable contribution to your professional advancement.
