    I have an upcoming assignment that I’m required to convert a series circuit to its parallel equivalent and a parallel circuit to its series equivalent. My textbook and lecturer isn’t very clear on this and it leaves a lot to be desired. My lecturer gave me a formula, which doesn’t help me much if I don’t understand what’s going on with it.

    I was hoping someone has a few recommendations on things that I can read to find out on how to go about converting them.

    Series what? Resistances? Power supplies?

    Post a typical problem and show your efforts to work it and we'll see if we can get you all up to speed.

    Do you mean Norton and Thevenins theorems?
