If you are an electrical engineering student, you cannot escape from learning the circuit theory. Circuit theory is a fundamental theorem for student need to know. It seems to be like ‘ABC’ for kindergarten kids to learn. When they grow up, ‘ABC’ is become fundamental for them when they start to learn how to write and read as well.

If you are expert in circuit theory, you will find others high level subject easy for you to understand. At that particular time, you can feel the entire theorem as easy as ‘ABC’ if and only if you are expert in circuit theory. Therefore, that why circuit theory is one of the fundamental subjects that have been teach in the first year studies.

For that reason, I feel a pleasure to share my knowledge to all of you in this particular theory. For your information, I am a university lecturer’s that responsible to teach electrical engineering. Circuit theory is among the subject that I am been taught in my university.

Circuit theory can be divided into two categories which is DC and AC. When I start to teach my student, I already study on how to make my student can easy to understand. I plan to write my note accordingly to my student feedback. Almost student wanted to know step by step and case by case each of the theorem in this subject. The entire example comes with complete solution. The example is choose to be easy for student to understand. The most important thing is to understand the concept of theorem, not to memorize the steps. If you know the concept, it will be easy for you to apply to others circuit.

I give this note to all my students. I give to them just before I start to teach in the class. Easy for me and easy for my student.

Don’t worry for those who wanted to have my note. It not too expensive. I know how student’s life. I just want to share what I did in my class. The very cheap price is only to motivate and encourage myself to write much more a good note as a reference to students. The note is an original note with my handwriting.

You can choose which one do you want: DC Circuit Theory or AC Circuit Theory.
But I recommend to get both note/ebook.

It only cost you:
DC Circuit Theory = $0.50USD
Add to Cart

AC Circuit Theory = $0.50USD
