Well, math has not made me into an 'objective' designer. But then, I am an analog designer, not a digital designer. I can actually make symmetrical circuits work very well, although I have sometimes used more conventional approaches. I find that I can work with slightly dissimilar complementary components and make them work together.
In any case, I know a lot more math than what I normally use for designing analog circuits. While I recommend studying math, it is not imperative that you know much more than algebra to design a linear circuit.

I think it was Dick Burwen who once said: "If you know opamps and Ohms law, you can do anything". While I think that is cutting it a bit short, I agree with John that you can do surprisingly good with minimal algebra.

it is a great source of info and is easy to follow designing circuits from input to output with all the math and reasoning made easy.

Darn, had that one saved to the hard drive already!

Good to see others regarding it so highly, now I know I can trust it
