While the content of the book is quite good for a beginner in RF , the fact that the book costs as much as the usual hardcover engineering textbooks, while it is only a paperback, with lower quality paper, is a big negative. This book will definitely not hold up well in your backpack throughout the course of a semester, unless if you take care of it really really well.
Even if it does make it through the semester, just think how long you can use it as a reference, before the wear and tear destroys the book in particular, the corners will start bending, then creases will appear, then the binding will become loose, then the cover will fall off, then pages will start ripping and falling out.
For those who will sell their old textbooks, I don't think used paperback textbooks depreciate as well as the more durable hardcover ones. Though, if you're stuck, and the class requires it, then you'll have to be a sucker and cough up the money, of course. The content is pretty good, though. It does a pretty good job teaching dumm people like us about RF design in particular, it briefly explains the hard stuff [emag], and then shows how easier stuff was derived from that in order to simplify RF design, then it goes on to show how to use the easy stuff [Smith Chart], and that is as far as I am right now in class.
If feeling cheap, though, then I think other versions I bought this as an RF engineer to keep up on my skills. I wish that it had more examples and solutions in the back, for example just the odd numbered problems have solutions in the back so you can work through them. This book is recommended to who desires a good introduction to RF circuits. The language is easy to understand and the book has a lot of examples. It is not a deep study, but it is enough to understand the basic theory and principles.
It was really designed for us, students : But, even after the course, it will be good to remember basic concepts that sometimes we forget. Very good book, description very accurate, great seller. If you're interested in learning RF Circuit design, you need this book. This book gradually steps through important sections of analysis in RF design and works its way up to amplifiers, oscillators and mixers. I bought this book without fully knowing a large number of founding concepts of RF theory.
What I found was that this book anticipates this from the reader and invests the first few chapters teaching such topics. As you progress through the high frequency analysis and learning how to apply the smith chart, you're brought into the world of active circuits.
Systematically applying earlier taught material to more advanced topics, the reader is left with a good understanding of pratical application. Overall, this is a beginner-intermediate RF text. After completing a study of this text, you'll have enough to make basic RF circuits and subsystems. To meet the needs of real world applications, you will need a supplimentary text such as Microwave Transistor Amplifiers by Gonzalez.
To back this, i point out the extreme lack of emphasis on S-parameter data, as well as only 15 pages on broadband amplifiers. Still this is a pretty good book.
