Format: Hardcover
I have heard that there are only a few books out there for system dynamics, so I want to cut this one some slack. However, what I want in a book is many detailed examples, and this book simply does not have that. It has quite a bit of explaining, but in my opinion, one example is worth 1000 words. The examples it has tended not to be inclusive.

Considering the content, the text is quite readable.

This would be a good supplement if the professor did plenty of practice problems in class. As most (of mine) do not, I really do not know how to do problems.

Another thing that irks me about this book is that it does not have answers, not even selected answers, in the back. Therefore, I have no idea if I am doing the problems correctly.

This book is okay it has decent examples and explains the material pretty good. it has good matlab example and code that are pretty useful. the only thing i think that would make it better is better or more graphics and more real world work.

This book is about as dry as it gets when it comes to texts. Most likely it will be mandatory for your class but just hope that your teacher has some good example problems for you and can explain them because this texts in limited in its examples and does not help you understand them well enough.
The reason i gave it the two stars I did is the redeeming factor of the material in the book. It is actually very useful. Its just that the authors didn't do the best job of aiding in understanding.

Format: Hardcover
If you haven't extensively reviewed the material seen in this book beforehand--in the form of classes and/or thorough notes or examples---assignments will be hell to do.

The book has examples for one case of one type of problem. Any deviations from that and you'll be left scratching your head for hours--very unhelpful examples.

Bad explanations and bad examples--terrible book.
