N2 - Pragmatic Circuits: DC and Time Domain deals primarily with circuits and how they function, beginning with a review of Kirchhoff 's and Ohm's Laws, analysis of d-c circuits and op-amps, and the sinusoidal steady state. The author then looks at formal circuit analysis through nodal and mesh equations. Useful theorems like Thévenin's are added to the circuits toolbox. This first of three volumes ends with a chapter on design. The two follow-up volumes in the Pragmatic Circuits series include titles on Frequency Domain and Signals and Filters. These short lecture books will be of use to students at any level of electrical engineering and for practicing engineers, or scientists, in any field looking for a practical and applied introduction to circuits and signals. The author's "pragmatic" and applied style gives a unique and helpful "non-idealistic, practical, opinionated" introduction to circuits
