Gil Strang has given the discipline of computational science and engineering its first testament in this new and comprehensive book. It surely extends Gil's long tradition of practical, wide-ranging, and insightful books that are invaluable for students, teachers, and researchers alike. If you could have only one book on a desert island, this might be it. --William Briggs, Professor of Mathematics at University of Colorado at Denver, and SIAM Vice-President for Education.
Encompasses the full range of computational science and engineering from modeling to solution, whether analytic or numerical. Gilbert Strang has taught this material to thousands of engineers and scientists. Supporting resources, including video lectures, are provided by the author at www-math.mit.edu/cse.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So, my suggestion for you is as follows. Pick up the book from a library. And go straight to a topic that you are somewhat familiar with. And try to see if Prof. Strang does an excellent job on that topic. I did that for a few of them, and I found that the book is not sufficient explaining those topics.
By the way, for CG method neither the book nor the video lectures are very useful. You will need the article by Jonathan Richard Shewchuk. You can find it online. This is the best for CG.
