This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The importance of this course is providing basic knowledge of electric circuits.
Course highlights:
This course helped to strength my knowledge of using Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits to simplify more complicated circuits. This course uses differential equations to explain the actions of circuits. The importance and usage of mutual inductance is explained for practical usages.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
The need for Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuit is very helpful and can make circuits much easier to work with. The use of complex values is huge and thus the knowledge of how to work the graphic calculators to manipulate complex numbers and solve systems of equations.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The teacher is a grad student who has a student's mentality. What I mean is that he understands our situation and does the best he can to help us fully understand the material without feeling overwhelmed. His office hours are truly helpful. The key to success in this class is practice practice practice! The more homework problems, example problems, test problems you do the better you will do in this course. Good luck!
Course highlights:
This course taught some core fundamentals for the rest of my electrical engineering courses. It taught many tricks and equational manipulations to simplify a circuit which I know will be helpful in the future.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to do the homework without using the solutions! The solutions should be used if you truly are stuck on a problem. If you don't understand a problem then go to office hours and ask the teacher for help. Copying the solutions and turning in the answers will give you a completed homework grade but will set you up for failure if you don't truly understand the material.
