Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the seventh edition: 'This is an excellent self-learning text. In a matter of hours the reader can go from almost no knowledge of a topic to a reasonable level of competence. I have seen no other text that gives the reader a basic knowledge in a topic so quickly, efficiently and painlessly.' - Pete Peterson, John Tyler Community College, Virginia, USA 'This is the most comprehensive self-help maths text available that is suitable for access level and first year undergraduate science and engineering students.' - Hazel Shute, University of Plymouth, UK 'This book offers a thorough grounding in mathematics and is a must for any student serious about studying engineering at a higher level.' - --Robert Jenkins, Learning Enhancement Team, University of East Anglia, UK

I have included my review of the previous edition, with minor updating, as it is still applicable. The additional material in this edition is a nice improvement, as is the lower price.

However, there is now a caveat. In my opinion, the publishers made an unfortunate decision to publish this in one volume. It needs to be published in two parts. While publishing in one volume may reduce costs, it is definitely not user-friendly. Its now weighs almost 6-1/2 pounds. This makes it very, very difficult, perhaps impossible, to carry and use easily. Its weight requires a table, or large book support, be used to work comfortably. The previous edition was almost two pounds lighter, and had a smaller size, making that edition comfortable to handle. I had no problem carrying it with me to refer to as time allowed. The weight and size of this edition make that, for me, impossible.

This is an excellent text for self-study or as a supplement to a classroom text. It is fairly wide ranging, covering a large portion of the mathematics needed during the first few years of an engineering, or physical science program. However, it is not quite comprehensive, lacking some areas that have gained significant importance in recent times, e.g, discrete transforms. Although some Fourier Series and transforms are covered in the companion volume "Advanced Engineering Mathematics".

The pretests and revision (more commonly called review in the US) sections are quite helpful. The book de-emphasizes formal definitions, as concepts and intuitive descriptions are provided in conjunction with examples. However, in some instances this can lead to problems, where the appropriate problem-solving approach is well-presented but the lack of a formal definition can lead to some "fuzziness".

I would have given this book 5 stars but for two things: There are errors and no errata to correct them.

I returned to college two years ago to finish a degree. I finished high school more than 20 years ago and bought the book as a review/refresher product, and secondarily as a guide for more advanced mathematics that I have not yet learned. I'm not fond of math, but it is a fundamental part of my new career field.

Pros:

- Absolutely spectacular breadth of coverage
- Some different approaches from what I was taught in school. Some of these approaches have provided additional insight.
- Very clear, step-by-step explanations walk you through each problem
- Plenty of practice problems with solutions

However, I keep finding errors. They're not on every page, but they're there, and that's a very bad thing for readers trying to review and learn additional mathematics. I could find no errata on the publisher's companion website. I've been running into errors a lot lately, reading computer science and mathematics texts, and it's very frustrating. I was a different kind of engineer in the Army, and we made it a high priority to get things right, the first time. I wish the publishing world would pick up on the practice.

Format: Paperback
This book represents a masterpiece in clear exposition. It takes the patient reader from quite basic mathematics through to that required by third year undergraduates in engineering and physical science courses in planned, frame-based, systematic and methodical steps. Each chapter has revision summaries, revision exercises and quizzes together with answers. Even mathematics undergraduates would probably benefit from it as part of their reading diet.

It's been the 'staple' diet for such courses for decades for a reason: it has few if any peers!

I'm studying Computer Science and struggled a lot with the higher level maths. This book is one of the few references I've found that I can refer to and learn from with relative ease. I swear by this book and recommend it to all of my friends doing similar courses.
