    Average !! although not suggested for beginners having first course in "Electric machines"

    I have read third edition as well as fourth edition of this book..
    New edition has lot of errors..makes reading frustrating..incomplete solved examples.. I find third edition better than this..Not suited for first course in Electric machines.. Author expects a certain level of intelligence on readers part also assumes that the reader has good concepts in field theory, network analysis(mainly phasor analysis), mathematics and basics of Electric machines itself!!
    however better books are availa...

    Statuatory Warning

    To buy this would mean a great mistake on the buyer's part. Filled with errors, it's a nightmare of a read. I have been assigned this book as a textbook for a course of the same name in my college. It is not suited for understanding the subject. Moreover, this book makes the reader averse to the topic. Simple concepts are poorly illustrated. The answers for the unsolved questions which are provided behind the book are often incorrect. This leads to self-doubt in the reader who is courageous e...

    HELLISH EXPERIENCE

    NEVER BUY THIS BOOK or any other book by Nagrath and/or Kothari.

    I've learnt this the hard way.

    I whole heartedly approve Ishaan's comment.

    I've had similar and more frightening experiences.

    To the authors: If you write a book, atleast TRY to make it interesting.

    Buyer Beware!!!

    The only reason people buy this book, is if it were recommended (ahem) by their professors. Written in an extremely poor way, you will not only NOT learn anything new, but will forget concepts you learnt as a child, namely addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
    Full of mistakes, it is only worth reading as a dare. Some things you must do before reading this book are (prerequisites): wrestling a tiger with your bare hands, skydiving without a parachute, amputate yourself and bury...

    Why did they write this book !

    Someone please tell the author to go learn elementary algebra, full of mistakes, very poor/missing explanations. A variety of completely useless problems.
    It diverts attention away from the subject and ensure you want to have nothing to do with the book or subject.
    Don't even think of bothering to waste your hard earned valuable money on this as it will be an investment in nothing short of sure failure.

    Not Good

    Reading this book is a nightmare especially for a first course generally in the 2nd or 3rd year of engineering. This comes from my personal experience when I tried to read this book because it was listed as the primary textbook for the course. Finally I could understand some critical concepts like the rotating magnetic field in AC machines from Cotton's Electrical Technology. Chapters 4 and 5 are rather unreadable disregarding the amount of time you spend on those, and most of the fundamenta...

    GOOD book for machines. Recommended by most colleges.

    This book contains all the concepts. The concepts may be difficult to understand at the first go but reading it becomes a breeze the second time. Buy this book if you want to get a strong hold of concepts.
