Great explanations and a good selection of problems to help you practice and learn.
Ariel Munoz
The textbook is alright but you still have to get a binder to hold it in place so it has its advantages but it can be annoying if you don't see it coming.
Oluwatobi O. Ogunsanwo
This book is concisely written, the examples are clearly laid out, and there are minimal tangential points.

My EG thermo professor and I could not communicate very well so I ended up learning from the book, and I can tell you that this book is incredibly well written. I did really well in the course (Many of my peers failed) and I credit my success to the authors. After taking that class and learning this book my problem soling skills have improved by leaps and bounds, I surprise myself sometimes. In summary READ THIS BOOK, even if you have a good professor, it will help you become a better engineer.

It has great problems but that is all it really has going for it. Quite a few equations where variables are not documented. All learning from the book needs to be done through examples as the actual text portion I feel is worthless. If you learn well from just examples then it is a great book. But if you enjoy reading concepts then this book is terrible.

While I consider myself an environmentally concerned person this book shoves the authors opinions constantly on you. Most writers have trouble keeping their opinions out of texts and it's understandable as we are only human but these authors don't even try.

*When I am paying per page keep your politics out of it.*

Also the book cover is coming off and I purchased this brand new. It was built poorly. Not good engineering :D

I hope professors look elsewhere for a book.

Keep in mind that this isn't my major but I needed this book for a required course....

This book has a nice layout. Formulas are easy to find in text and examples are given throughout the chapters. It has a lot of tables on the back few pages (you need them for most problems) and they are given in both SI and English units. Each chapter has a lot of problems so you can practice and learn everything.

But not everything is great. some of the problems are so long and complicated that it can be very difficult to solve with the given examples. Other times it just seems like it's a one step problem which can be easily over-thought and made more difficult. Sometimes the problems are solved by a computer system so you have no steps on how to solve. In order to fully and quickly learn from the problems, I suggest you try to work out the problems then either ask your professor/TA for the worked out solutions to check your work. Since most problems are worked out the same, if you know how to do a few you'll be able to complete the rest. This book has some printing issues, the ink they use (or the paper) is very strange. The main issue is that the ink smudges if you rest your arm over the text and the pages are very thin.

Overall I would recommend this book as you do learn quite a bit from it and it will prepare you for future courses. Just be careful not to smudge any of the tables or you'll be screwed.

This book is concisely written, the examples are clearly laid out, and there are minimal tangential points. Really a helpful starting point for any mechanical engineer.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By ME & EE student on May 31, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This text is extremely well narrated and organized, with the highly structured presentation and layout making this a landmark for technical writers. It's got the best stepwise solution format of examples I've seen in any book. The book serves the fields of thermodynamics and therefore engineering really well. Here you'll find the control volume form of the energy equation quite easy to grasp. (I've got the 4th edition. As an aside Cengel's book, although decent, is mere average compared to Moran and Shapiro.)

We had to purchase this book for a Thermodynamics 1 course I took. We only used the first 6 chapters in class, but I grew curious and started to read the other chapters.

I will start by giving you the pros and cons of this book:

PROS:
* Clear layout
* Tables in the rear of the book are organized and have a clean layout & use different colors to differentiate units (SI first then English units)
* Mini examples during the reading to help you understand concepts
* Section problems to use newly acquired skills
* At the end of each chapter, there is a section that gives you the most important equations in that chapter
* Front of the textbook has conversions by subtype (Force, Pressure, Energy, etc...) and in both units
* The book offers problems in both SI and English Units
* Aesthetically pleasing
* It offers Thermodynamics as a science for different types of engineers (Biomed, Environ, etc...) thus aiding them see what it could be useful for & giving us traditional engineering majors a look at how to apply Thermodynamics outside of our realm of expertise

CONS:
* The chapters can get long. Like 40-50+ pages long in some cases
* Computer methods sometimes occur in the book between concepts.
