    Hello,

    Could you please give some information about your syllabus, what is your maths and communication background? There are many books out there and student requirements vary enormously.

    Regards

    I recommend Digital and Analog Communications Systems, ISBN 0023253916 Couch 1990, runs the gamut from propagation to modern protocols. Also, ITT Reference Data for Radio Engineers, ISBN 0672212188.

    Hello

    This is a very broad subject, My backround is in Broadcast Engineering,
    I worked on AM and FM radio stations so I dont know if this will help you
    but the two most used books I own are the ARRL Handbook and
    ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION by Robert L. Shrader
    ISBN #0-07-057151-1 McGraw-Hill, New York.. The NAB Engineering Handbook
    is also very good...
    Hope this helps...

    I am student in the second year of computer engineering
    I studied calculus ,circuit analysis and digital electronics in the first year
    I don't know the syllabus but i think it is introduction to DSP ( we shall study DSP on the third year )

    Hello,

    I think it's best that you first check your syllabus. Some modules would normally involve lots of maths and communication concepts from Fourier series to designing filters, but most don't actually go into electronic circuit design as such, you learn it from somewhere else. They tend to focus on the maths and illustrate how signals are processed in communication systems.

    I would recommend Analog and Digital Signal Processing by H.Baher, the maths is tough. Before introducing DSP, some analog signal processings are usually first introduced and compared. My best advice would be to first check the syllabus, go to your university library, check out a few books and skim through on the spot for a few hours until you find a book that you can understand well and which also fulfills your requirements. Your first point of contact would be your lecturer.

    Good luck.

    Just have a look at the following books. I think this will help you a lot.;)

    Communications Systems by Simon Haykins (2nd edition)
    Engineering Electromagnetic by Mathew N O sadiku (for transmission lines & smith chart)
