    HI everyone there...
    I'm new to electronics circuit designing...so can you please recommend me a good software in which i can simulate the electronic circuits and is also in good demand in the engineering jobs.

    What type of circuits? Analog, Digital, Software, VLSI, RF. It takes a several simulators to bridge all of those.

    basic electronic circuits...ie. combination of analog and digital.
    I don't want to go into VLSI or something like that...jst basic circuit designing!!!

    Start with one of the Spice derivatives. I like the free LTSpice.

    another good one is National Instruments Multisim.

    Very good and also does some PIC simulation too. So you can program a PIC and see what the PIC does to the circuit.

    It's software that seems to be widely used but comes at a price if you intend to buy it.

    if you're after cheap software... circuit wizard is highly recommended too.

    I have multiSIM, but prefer Proteus from Labcenter. ISIS does the schema and simulation. It seems quite accurate, I sim on screen, build prototype, which seem to work first time as expected.
