Format: Paperback
I have been using a copy of this reference since I got started with Matlab about a year and a half ago. It is very good for beginners who need to look up how to do general tasks such as write a function using variable arguments, perform plotting, or figure out how to shoe-horn a problem into Matlab that doesn't really seem to fit the Matlab paradigm of everything being a matrix. I also particularly like the chapter on using Matlab with Java. Of course, if you are a more advanced user, this book will seem too simplistic. Even now, though, it's the first book I go to when I have a question that does not involve one of the specialized Matlab toolboxes.Read more ›

I use this book everyday. It is easy to find what you need right away. Although, MatLab has demos that you can use to write programs or m-scripts, the book has features that are not in the demos that will make writing scripts much easier. It doesn't go into great detail with more difficult plots but allows for the those who just need 1-D, 2-D and simple 3-D plots to plot data points easily and fast. This is definitely the bible for first time users of MatLab.

This is one of the best books on Matlab I have read. Mastering Matlab takes you step by step on the basics of Matlab and even goes on to some more advanced topics. Once you get past the basics in the first couple of chapters, you can skip ahead to the chapter with the topic you are interested in.

The book gives clear expanations and lots of examples. One of my university professors recommended this book to me.

If you want to learn matlab, get this book. As the title suggests, after reading the book you will master matlab.

If you're not sure about buying this book, I would suggest going to your university library and checking it out. I kept borrowing it out over and over, until I decided I should buy my own copy so that I always have a handy reference at hand.

I have been a user of MATLAB for maybe ten years and have purchaed many third party books on MATLAB over that time. I found the text Mastering MATLAB 7 to be at best only fair. It might have some value (and there are other books with more value) as a review of specific features of MATLAB, but when it covers new territory it is a poor or at best a fair choice. For example the section on differential equations (Chapter 25) is little more than a rehash of the MATLAB help menue which is to say it could have been copied out of the MATLAB users manual. The value of a third party book (as opposed to the users manual) is that it should be a tutorial and a "fill in the blanks" that not present in the manufacturers literature. I had been trying to stop a six state integration when one of the states goes to zero; I find the material in said chapter worthless. If you buy this book looking for a tutorial you will find it usually poor and at best only fair. The book is a great disappointment to me.

This is a huge and comprehensive book about MATLAB but definitely not for beginners. It can also be used as a reference. It covers everything you need to know about MATLAB - even classes and object-oriented programming. However, if you are just beginning to learn MATLAB, you may want to check the book "MATLAB for Beginners: A Gentle Approach".

I have used this book and have loaned it to many of the students doing research with me. I have found it quite useful as a general reference and particularly like the examples of ways to create different types of figures. It is quite comprehensive, covering all of the basics.

This is overall a pretty good reference when working with Matlab, although sometimes the information is spread out in the book and it is difficult to narrow in on one topic.

There are indeed many MATLAB books. This one was recommended to me by someone else and I would definitely recommend it to all of you. Very useful. I bought it 'used' and its condition was excellent.
