This has been my long standing PSpice guide for many years now. Provides a "tutorial approach" to using PSpice through graduated examples. This is a netlist based book, a great reference covering the all the basics. The cover claims a best-selling guide (I'm not surprised), a great starter on SPICE.
OrCAD PSpice and Circuit Analysis
Vladimirescu, one of SPICE's original developers, not only gives the novice a great introduction, but dives in deep for the more experienced user. Lot's of examples with some advanced circuits as well. I really enjoyed the SPICE algorithms explained in detail. You also get a nice SPICE history lesson and some insight on analog behavioral modeling and convergence.
CIRCUIT DESIGN AND ANALYSIS
The Art of Electronics
Another classic book that seems to give you security just having it on your shelf. Covers basic op amp theory in excellent detail. But, like the title says, its more cookbook than theory. However, with over 200 practical circuit applications, its an awesome collection of op amp circuits to have on hand.
