In any field of study the student's first course is an important, significant experience. Here he must acquire the fundamentals that he will use throughout his further studies. But also-and perhaps this is even more important-it is here that his attitudes toward the subject first are formed. The first course should teach the student basic principles; but it should also leave him exhilarated by what he has learned, and eager to know more. In our belief, students feel the greatest desire to learn when a course seems "relevant," or "real"-when the subject is of obvious importance, and its applications are easily seen. What subject fits this description better than present-day electronics? Exciting developments are taking place, of which students are not unaware, and the excitement is contagious. Surely the first course should not waste this opportunity. We practiced today. To be sure, this first course must also teach basic principles. But we believe that it is best to teach fundamentals while teaching topics of current interest. In brief, that is the basic idea of this book.
