This is a refresher course in circuit theory, consisting of tutorials and examinations to prepare candidates for the Engineering National Examination 16-Elec-A1 Circuits. The course covers lumped parameter models of circuit components, nodal and mesh analysis of linear, passive circuits and equivalent networks, steady state analysis of lumped parameter, time-invariant circuits, and differential equation formulations (including sinusoidal inputs, frequency response, impulse response, and transfer functions). Laplace transform analysis, circuit transient response, and two-port circuit models and analysis are also covered.
