4.0 out of 5 stars Back To Basics August 19, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this to review long forgotten material. I find the authors' approach clear and easy to follow.
If you want the basics without the theory, I recommend this study guide.
As with other Schaum's Outlines, I have found a few, just a few discrepencies in the answers given for the problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Statics July 22, 2008
This book is a great self teacher of statics and beam mechanics. It has the best treatment of the "singularity function" method for beam loading that I have read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Step-by-Step Introduction to Statics April 1, 2009
This work provides a solid but incremental introduction to basic statics problems. Topics covered include math fundamentals, Varignon's theorem, resolution of forces, problems involving friction, etc. The section on beam statics, notably the computation of beam shears and bending moments, is especially good. The student learns how to compute stress and strain in materials upon the application of a force or forces. There is also a section on riveted steel connections and their capacities.
