Hello,

I've noticed that many universities, almost all, follow the same text books for the same courses, as if it were standard texts. However their choice is unfortunately backward and to say the least, not the best choice.

To give a few examples.

For introductory microelectronics the standard should be:

Electronic Devices and Circuit Theory by Boylstad

For Signals:

Signals and Systems by M. J Roberts.

For Control theory:

Control Systems Engineering by Nise

For Introductory circuits:

Fundamentals of Electric Circuits by Alexanders.

Hope this helps.

In what part of the world is that?
Probably the part you don't live in. :)

That's an amazing amount of research. Could you provide the data?
Since I did an amazing amount of research, I cannot provide data too, that would be a lot...I have other things to do besides researching. It's YOUR exercise to look for the data, it's available on...the internet?

Guys please before you be sarcastic do some research.

I have done research and posted it on a site about a famous U.S. college.

You may think you will get a better education,maybe.

I've no idea what you are talking about. Your reply is completely irrelevant here. :)

Get some education.

Well, I'm trying to figure out why someone would come on a forum, post that college's text book choices are wrong, that you know all the correct books to use, and you insult rather than back up your claims when asked.

Really? This is a no flame zone. This applies to the entire site. If you can not respect other users you will be disinvited (as in banned). Plain enough?

For a new user you have made an impression, a truly unique one. All the moderators are paying attention.

I know van Vlakenburg from Analog Filter Design, and I can highly recommend that volume. HTH

Actually IMHO textbooks don't matter. Quality students do just fine without them.

Microelectronics by Sedra and Smith is a great text. I used it for 3 university classes, and keep it as a reference to this day ( 20 years after the fact ) I was a little shocked to see an edition in my local bookstore. Would love to have a new one, since mine looks like a rat's nest after two decades of usage.

Also, I picked up a book called "Transistor Circuit Design" by Texas Instruments. I've never seen another one of these, but it is comprehensive in it's treatment of various transistor designs.

Even when they don't have access to internet?
Sure! I managed to get not just one but two degrees when the internet was just a pipe dream. It was more work and required personal interaction, but it was and still is quite doable. You don't even need a good professor, but it does help.
