Interesting new methods for circuit analysis, some are quite intuitive, while others are very math intensive. Labs are meticulous, but I enjoyed them. Homework can be long, but sets you up to do well on the exams.
Op-amps, active and passive filters, phasor analysis, Fourier series analysis, and Laplace transforms.
Great lecturer - very easy to follow and great at explaining the concepts. Very receptive to question during lecture and office hours.
Develop a methodical system for analyzing circuits for those problems where you are not given explicit direction on which method to use. Install ORCAD on your own machine so you can have the experiment step of each lab complete before you arrive. This helps speed up your time at lab. Only 2 exams and they account for 70% of your grade, so make sure to put a lot of effort into preparing for them.

Pretty great course. It's literally a continuation of Circuits I, so as long as you get the basics of that course, you'll be fine. A lot of homework and labs so it was pretty rigorous.
Learn op-amps, filters, phasors,... These are all standard topics for a circuit theory course. The labs consisted of using PSPICE and making breadboard circuits utilizing test equipment, which are all good for experience.
Professor was fantastic. Lectures felt robust, challenging, but doable. Gave fair curve. Actually cares about teaching students, and it made me feel very motivated to work hard.
First, get a good lab partner because labs can take a long time and they're worth a lot. Second, exams are difficult so practice, practice, and practice homework problems.
