First published in 1959, Herbert Jackson's Introduction to Electric Circuits is a core text for introductory circuit analysis courses taught in electronics and electrical engineering technology programs. This lab manual, created to accompany the main text, contains a collection of experiments chosen to cover the main topics taught in foundational courses in electrical engineering programs.

Experiments can all be done with inexpensive test equipment and circuit components. Each lab concludes with questions to test students' comprehension of the theoretical concepts illustrated by the experimental results. The manual is formatted to enable it to double as a workbook, to allow students to answer questions directly in the lab manual if a formal lab write-up is not required.
