This book is concisely written, the examples are clearly laid out, and there are minimal tangential points.
Michael Camp
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.

This book is better than my bookstore since it's in color and its cheaper. nice hard covers and doesnt have any missing information.

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.

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.

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.

Would recommend for sure.

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.

A great book. It has many example problems that help understand the topics covered. Therefore it is easy to follow. And the practice problems are relevant

I have read several comments concerning the absence of problem solutions in reference to this book. It maybe because there are so many options to choose from to solve various problems. I suspect that the cost of extending the book size with answers in the back is not justifiable to keep the price down. A CD would have been nice but they didn't feel this way.

I have a B.S. ME degree and have practice my engineering craft for quite some time. I am preparing for Grad-school and further to a Doctorate. An idea I am working with is an App, PocketCAS-Pro, math solver for iPad. I am reading and learning its capabilities and mu current challenge is to determine how to input complex equation coding into the application. The draw back is that it goes from problem entry to solution...haven't found a means to display full solutions yet. I believe the App Script function may hold the key to my extended problem solving dilemma.

In conclusion, I recommend using a math solver for problems in the book that will calculate and plot.
