This book is intended for a one-semester course in the analysis of linear electric circuits. The goal of this text is to ensure that the reader has firmly mastered those skills that are necessary for analyzing the majority of electric circuits encountered in later courses of an electrical engineering curriculum as well as other disciplines in engineering. This book
• Covers the basic concepts of voltage and current as well as the fundamental laws (KVL and KCL) governing those quantities. The node-voltage and mesh-current techniques are explained.
• Explains a generalized method of solving electric circuits by representing the given circuit in the form of linear graph.
• Discusses additional techniques such as superposition, Thevenin, and Norton theorem for solving the electric circuits.
• The concepts of resonance in series and parallel RLC circuits is discussed in detail.

Analysis of the time-domain (transient) response of circuits as a result of switching is treated in the classical fashion using differential equations followed by a number of solved problems.
