Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most poorly organized review books I have read. Alan Williams has managed to make the same fatal flaw that so many engineers who attempt to write review books make. He has written a book geared to an audience who already understands the material. If someone knows the material, they wouldn't need this review book. In addition to typing errors that referencing sections of the UBC that do not exist, the sample problems are poorly organized and confusing. The ability to mind read is a prerequisite. For example, sample problem # 6 shows a solved force diagram that is not calculated anywhere in sample #6. After wasting valuable time asking yourself "what am I missing", you will give up in frustration and continue reading. Only the find the solution five pages later...in sample problem #10 which references back to #6. Essentially, you are given solutions to samples BEFORE you are introduced to the theory. The author makes too many assumptions and takes too many shortcuts in explainations. If you want to fill your mind with confusion and headaches, buy this book. If you want to fill it with organized knowledge, look elsewhere.
