A First Course in Electrical and Computer Engineering

This free textbook was written for an experimental freshman course, but is now an elective that most students take before the circuits course for electrical and computer engineering students.  "The first three chapters of this book provide a fairly complete coverage of complex numbers, the functions ex and ejθ, and phasors. Our department philosophy is that these topics must be understood if a student is to succeed in electrical and computer engineering. These three chapters may also be used as a supplement to a circuits course. A measured pace of presentation, taking between sixteen and eighteen lectures, is sufficient to cover all but the advanced sections in Complex Numbers through Phasors."
