6 Essential Electrical Engineering Books

If you are starting an electrical engineering course, is it considered bad practice to start studying before the course starts?

Electrical engineering principles are well established, and it is unlikely they will change during your course or even your lifetime. So, there is no harm in getting a head start or revising what you already know from your last electrical engineering course. It’s not considered bad practice if you are attentive in class.

What books should you read for your electrical engineering course?

Books that fill the knowledge gap. It depends on your level of experience within the electrical engineering world, but you should start with the basics for the new students.

Here is a list of recommended books for any electrical engineer at any stage of their career:

Electrical engineering without prior knowledge: Understand the basics within 7 days (Become an Engineer Without Prior Knowledge)

Suppose you are rusty about the basic principles of electrical engineering. In that case, this book is a must for the newbie student and the experienced electrical engineer who needs a refresher once in a while.

This book will remove the challenges of understanding electric current, voltage, and energy principles.

The book covers direct current technologies and alternating current technologies to give you a clear understanding.

There are real examples and exercises to monitor your performance as you progress through this book.

Why is this book recommended? 

  • It gives real-life examples and covers the most important areas of maths and physics for the course.
  • The book covers Power, current and voltage in easy to understand language.
  • The book includes real electrical diagrams with notations and layout.
  • The use of resistors and capacitors is essential for circuits.
  • A circuit you can rebuild and understand.
  • The book delves into real-life applications to give the student in-depth knowledge of why certain components are used or excluded.

Electronics for Absolute Beginners 

To some students, the thought of electrical engineering and electronics can be daunting. This book was written with those students in mind.

This ab initio guide is designed for those without prior knowledge and will lead the student in a step by step guide to understanding circuits.

If resistors and diodes are your Achilles heel, then this book will explain in easy to understand terms how to utilise these components in a circuit and how they affect the final outcome.

This book will give you the basic knowledge to move through your course with confidence as you grasp the basics of electronics and electronic design.

Components exist and what they are used for. You will also learn how to combine such components with building electronics circuits.

The book has a well thought out logical flow to help students with no experience gain a basic understanding of electronics.

The book is laid out in two parts, 1, an introduction to basic electronics 2, how to design and understand simple circuits.

The Art of Electronics – Third Edition

The long-anticipated third edition of the Art of Electronics follows the acclaimed and successful The Art of Electronics.

This book is recognised as being the authority for electronic circuit designs and is a must-have book for any electrical engineer.

The book has been in demand so much that it has been counterfeited, so only purchase this book from a reputable outlet.

The book includes oscilloscopes and screenshots of behavioural intricacies of electronic circuits.

Data measurement in the form of easy to understand graphs makes this book a compelling purchase for any electrical engineer.

A list of 1650 active components can be incorporated into an electronic circuit.

The informal way the book has been written has made this book the gold standard in electrical engineering that others wish they could emulate.

The Art of Electronics is an indispensable guide to both students, teachers and established electrical engineers.
