I am going back and studying my Math and Engineering Sciences and this free offering from WAGmob, "Mechanics 101" [Kindle Edition] is a nice little offering of the study of mechanics and basic laws governing the physics. If you want to review the concepts, this little read will remind you of the subject matter you will need to plow through to find a good understand of the field of study.

Very basic. OK if you just need a fast explanation. Simple math explanations are used. OK for quick reference without the long text book math and text.

This was a total waste of ninety-nine pennies because all it is is a bunch of bullets that point out the laws governing the physics of how things work as far as the mechanical properties go, but it doesn't really elaborate or go into detail and explain the theory...
