Basic Engineering Circuit Analysis, 11th Edition

ISBN: 9781118539293

Basic Engineering Circuit Analysis, 11th Edition has long been regarded as the most dependable textbook for computer and electrical engineering majors. In this new edition, Irwin and Nelms continue to develop the most complete set of pedagogical tools available and thus provide the highest level of support for students entering into this complex subject. Irwin and Nelms trademark student-centered learning design focuses on helping students complete the connection between theory and practice. Key concepts are explained clearly and illustrated by detailed, worked examples. These are then followed by Learning Assessments, which allow students to work similar problems and check their results against the answers provided.


  • Tools to help students build their problem-solving skills have been expanded to take full advantage of the combination of print and digital media. Key concepts are first described in text with illustrations, followed by detailed example solutions. Additional problems – Learning Assessments – are given with their answers but not solutions provided. Most Learning Assessment are solved in detailed video tutorial in WileyPLUS.
  • In order to provide maximum flexibility, solved examples are available in online supplements that apply the most popular problem-solving programs, MATLAB, PSPICE or MultiSim. These examples are all based on problems in the text, and any or all of them can be integrated into custom editions of the text.
  • Approximately 1400 end of chapter problems have been greatly expanded and revised, including hundreds of new problems of all levels of difficulty.
  • Every chapter includes FE Exam Problems, which closely match the style and level of problems typically found on this standardized test taken by most engineering students before graduation.
