Principles of Electric Circuits is a complete introduction to DC/AC circuits. It provides a clear overview of fundamental circuit laws and components, using math only when needed for understanding. Floyd's acclaimed coverage of troubleshooting, combined with exercises, examples and illustrations, gives you the problem-solving experience you need to step outside the classroom and into a job.

The 10th Edition has been heavily modified to improve readability and clarity. It reflects developments in technology since the last edition. This edition also adds new step-by-step procedures for solving problems with the TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator. Discussion of dimensional analysis with examples appears in this edition to introduce a useful problem-solving method.
