I am a huge For Dummies fan, but they didn't have one on Fluid Mechanics; so I bought this. I have to say, I definitely appreciate For Dummies more now that I read this book. DeMYSTiFieD doesn't teach/explain everything as well, however it was better than my textbook so I really can't complain. Worth it if you are struggling to grasp the concepts in Fluid Mechanics, but you really have to read everything slowly and carefully...sometimes a few times.

I bought this as a supplement for my fluid mechanics text book. I don't think it is as good as the "Dummies" series of books but it serves the purpose. The quizzes are helpful to ensure you know the topic before moving on.

I got "Thermo-dynamics" for Dummies and this book to help me solve and understand some challenging problems outside my expertise at work and both books came in very handy. I think both would be great for someone who did not have to take a proper class in either, or like me, only academic work I had for both subjects was 1st year physics.

Pre-req's: basic physics review; Calculus; or maybe some experience or understanding in basic hydraulics and pneumatics.
