The textbooks in this category are dedicated to a pretty complex study, the math and graphics of which can be dizzying to anyone very new to it. It was important, then, that we place a serious emphasis on the voice in which each entry is written, so that readers might have a chance to guide themselves through a given work without being overwhelmed. Introductory Circuit Analysis, despite its rather dry name, actually has one of the clearest voices around, and its focus on diving headlong into the math and helping you understand it might make it one of the most valuable such books on the market. Still, we wouldn't want a list that only catered to people who'd never designed their own circuits or deconstructed and reconstructed complex electrical devices, so we included some great options for more advanced readers like the FE exam study guide and the offering from the expansive Know It All series.
