Electronic circuit simulator needed!

Hello,

I'm an engineering student. And I need a circuit app. My college uses Multisim, but it isn't available on Mac. Has anybody used the iCircuit app? Is it any good?
Is it recommended for an engineering student?

Thanks in advance!

You might just be better off running multisim in a VM.

If the college uses Multisim I would get that and run in a VM to make sure you get the same results.

Yup. That's what I meant too.

You can also get help from others more easily.

In the PPC days that would not have been an option, but today in academia where you can usually get a cheap Windows license.

VM away!

I'm more inclined towards VM.
