## Description

*Electric Circuits, Tenth Edition, is designed for use in a one or two-semester Introductory Circuit Analysis or Circuit Theory Course taught in Electrical or Computer Engineering Departments. This title is also suitable for readers seeking an introduction to electric circuits.*

*Electric Circuits *is the most widely used introductory circuits textbook of the past 25 years. As this book has evolved to meet the changing learning styles of students, the underlying teaching approaches and philosophies remain unchanged.

MasteringEngineering for *Electric Circuits *is a total learning package that is designed to improve results through personalized learning. This innovative online program emulates the instructor’s office–hour environment, guiding students through engineering concepts from *Electric Circuits *with self-paced individualized coaching.

**Teaching and Learning Experience**

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students.

**Personalize Learning with Individualized Coaching:**MasteringEngineering provides students with wrong-answer specific feedback and hints as they work through tutorial homework problems.**Emphasize the Relationship between Conceptual Understanding and Problem Solving Approaches:**Chapter Problems and Practical Perspectives illustrate how the generalized techniques presented in a first-year circuit analysis course relate to problems faced by practicing engineers.**Build an Understanding of Concepts and Ideas Explicitly in Terms of Previous Learning:**Assessment Problems and Fundamental Equations and Concepts help students focus on the key principles in electric circuits.**Provide Students with a Strong Foundation of Engineering Practices:**Computer tools, examples, and supplementary workbooks assist students in the learning process.

**Note: **You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringEngineering does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MasteringEngineering search for ISBN-10: 0133875903/ISBN-13: 9780133875904. That package includes ISBN-10: 0133760030/ISBN-13: 9780133760033 and ISBN-10: 013380173X /ISBN-13: 9780133801736.

MasteringEngineering is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
