My Favorite Electrical Engineering Textbooks
Here are the books that I have found, during my EE education, to be really good. I will never suggest something I did not use or find well written. I don’t want you to waste your time and money.
Semiconductor Physics and Devices by Donald A. Neamen (4th Ed.)
This book was very well written! I would not have been able to understand the fundamentals behind transistors without this book. The examples are clear, concise, and relatively simple. There are very few books that all EE students agree are worth the money, but this is one of them.
We covered from chapter 1, 3-8, and 12. Chapter 2 was review and we ran out of time for the other chapters, but it is so helpful that I will read through them during winter break.
I should also mention, I have never skipped a class my entire college education, until this quarter. Frankly, our teacher just reads off the slides and really doesn’t put much into it, and I don’t blame him. It is fundamental things that he probably finds so easy it’s boring; however, when I was strapped for time I didn’t worry about it, because a few hours with the book and I knew exactly what was going on. That said, go to lecture when you can. It is usually helpful.
