Review

Praise for Previous Editions:
An excellent reference resource for all readership levels, this guide offers easy navigation through a browseable table of contents and an extensive index. It follows a natural progression for those studying the subject. It is logical, useful, and affordable. Summing up: Highly Recommended.
―CHOICE, September 2003

The 31st Edition of the CRC Standard Mathematical Tables and Formulae is, without a doubt, the new and improved bible of mathematics. It is an outstanding reference book, containing more than 30 new sections, covering more than 3,000 items, and including tables, properties, etc. The index has been revamped to make it faster and easier to find results.
Author Daniel Zwillinger has done an excellent job keeping the same successful format that has characterized earlier editions of the handbook. …
Mathematicians will find this handbook indispensable ― an absolute must-have desk reference. The ready access of tables that may be needed in mathematical endeavors will make life much easier for engineers, scientists, mathematicians, or even for those who are in the process of studying these and related subjects.
John Vacca, former computer security official for NASA's space station program (Freedom), The Barnes & Noble Review

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Ed Pegg Jr VINE VOICE on October 10, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a kid, I had an old copy of the 10th edition. I was particularly interested in the tables of squares and cubes, and used to search through those tables for patterns, such as 3543^3 = 44474744007. Today, though, anyone can get free copies of Perl, Python, or Pascal and generate many of these tables instantly. Much of it is available online, in places like MathWorld, Wikipedia, WolframAlpha, and the Wolfram Demonstrations Project.

However, as a kid, I flipped through the available books, and this was one of the books with pictures. I didn't understand it, but I knew that these things had something to do with these pictures. When I hit cartesian coordinates in math class, I remembered the pictures, and then I was off and running to be a mathematician. There is much in this book to catch the eyes of a child. Same goes for earlier editions.

Many of the online sources, such as the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences, have a core sampling of material in the book.

Beautifully bound (unlike the 30th edition). There are a few poor pictures, such as the Fano plane on page 171, and the knots on page 723. A page of famous graphs would have been helpful. Various useful sites like Wolfram Functions Site are not mentioned. Only one page is given to recreational math, and not a particularly useful page.

Still, this is overall a useful book, and very flippable. Recommended.

Format: Hardcover
There are numerous reviews on the internet that ding this fine volume for a "lack of tables" compared to the venerable 27th (which indeed is the last version that had many log and other tables now more commonly found on calculators and the web). So, having both, I decided to compare the two.

I'm not sure how the other reviewers ranked these two, but, other than price ($5 used for the 27th, vs $40 used for this one), there is no comparison. Yes, I love my 27th tables (and DO recommend you spend the extra 5 bucks from Goodwill to get it TOO), but even at this writing in 2015, this "new edition" (now going on 4 years old) still has hundreds of web links not found in previous editions, and upon checking a large number of them, many are still either perfectly active (or in the case of university links), rerouted but still available. These links have all the tables you'd ever want!

The positive tradeoff is the integrals- there are WAY more in this edition, and comparing it to a 2014 $100 US pocket integral book, the 32nd here has far more, INCLUDING wonderful indexing by topic. So, instead of trying to go through (u) subs integral by integral to find your application, you can often find it under physics, for example, or now even astrodynamics, etc. ALL editions of this fine handbook have wonderful indexes and this one has the best of all of them in online resources.

That said, I do LOVE my 27th, and if you don't have one, don't be fooled by the fact that it is 600 and this is 800 pages. The 27th does have a LOT of material that will save you web lookups, especially if you teach like I do, so do invest in a nice used one at a great price. The question: will you still need this one if you do? That really depends on your needs.

I still have my copy of a CRC Math Tables that I used in college. I used them in my classroom in the early days of my teaching carreer for their more detailed tables. For example: Trig tables to the nearest minute. Of course with today's calculator tech a lot of what I used this book for has become redundant, but it is a wonderful source for anyone studying mathematics. I purchased this one for my daughter's high school graduation as she is going to be studying math in college.

I've had a copy of this book's predecessor (14th Edition) since the mid 1960s. As a student, as a working engineer, and as a fan of math puzzles, I have often opened the book. The new edition doesn't have the extensive tables the old edition had because such tables can be easily generated as needed. However, I'm still keeping the old edition. The editors and content have changed over the years, but any edition would prove useful. I highly recommend it.

This is a massive book of reference for the beginner and the expert in the realm of Mathematics. In a time when Logarithms are unknown to the average High School student, and the intricacies of the slide rule have disappeared with the ability to estimate the answers to maths problems, this purchase has stirred the heart of a 70 year old mathematics junkie.

From the formula for the Volume of a truncated cone, to Euclidean Geometrical Theorems, they are all there. It is a work of beauty, and rare wonder. My High School Pure Maths Teacher all those years ago drummed much of this into an unwilling head. The pursuit of the fairer sex ensured much of his drumming was lost in the heat of the opening stanzas of the Viet Nam War. My discovery and experience of the beauty of mathematical communication has been made complete with this book.

Ah! Control Theory,Risk Analysis and Decision Rules have with age replaced the ache of the 18 year old, with the wiser and slower head of the 70 year old. The beauty remains in both, but that of the discoveries I have made in this book will stay with me now the former distractions of youth have passed.

And then if your calculator breaks on the morning of the great examination, maybe then youth will rediscover.,...
