This lab book, written by Frank Pugh and Wes Ponick, provides students and instructors with easy to follow laboratory experiments. The experiments range from an introduction to laboratory equipment to experiments dealing with filter applications. All experiments have been student tested to ensure their effectiveness. The lab book is organized to correlate with topics covered in the text chapter by chapter.

All experiments have a MultiSim activity that is to be done prior to the actual physical lab activity. MultiSim files (version 8) are included on a bound-in CD-ROM. This prepares students to work with circuit simulation software, and also to do "pre-lab" preparation before doing a physical lab exercise. MultiSim coverage also reflects the widespread use of circuit simulation software in today's electronic industries.
