The organization of the text is not just good. It makes this text more like the only well organized text you ,may, find every 10 texts you read!
However, the text assumes you have a background in the basic differential equations and laplace transform. It connects the mathematics you know with the system model in an outstanding way that really make you visualize the system dynamics just perfectly! Surly, that depends, somehow, on the reader's motivation toward learning the concept. Although the text doesn't cover thoroughly the state-space approach, it connects both domains in your mind that make you able to see the system poles in the time domain! You are absolutely right to say 'So what!, I know all about Eignvalues and eigenvectors!', it shows you it if you don't. So, if you do know the subject well then maybe you shouldn't buy this introductory level text at all!
The bottom line is: I strongly recommend this text for classical control systems course during the undergraduate level. However, I would only recommend to use it in the state-space course as a supplementary text besides some good state-space text like Brogan.
I think that professors look at this book and say "this is great. It contains everything i want to teach". Students look at this book and say "I have no idea what this book is trying to tell me". The difference is that the professors already know the material while the students are trying to learn it for the first time.
* The Nise text has averaged 4.0/5 in student end-of-term feedback. Dorf & Bishop averaged 3.4/5. Departmental average result for texts in all courses is 3.1/5.
* I really appreciate Nise's efforts to integrate previous chapters' concepts into homework problems so that students see how the material builds upon itself and they retain better through the repetition. (You don't have to select these problems, however -- not all of them are like this. There are *many* problems to choose from.)
* Answer key solutions are generally correct.
Things holding me back from a 5-star rating:
* Explanations are not as clear or concise as possible sometimes. For instance, I liked the Type Number analysis (for steady-state error) better in Dorf & Bishop. The summarizing table in Nise has too many columns and is unnecessarily confusing.
* The system dynamics problems in chapter 2 are way too hard for a student's introduction to that material. He needs to add about 6-8 easier 1DOF problems at the beginning of the problem set before throwing multiple masses, gears, etc. into the mix.
If you're working from a controls engineering text that 20yrs old as I was you're missing out!

The text itself is pretty clear and provides good examples, however, when solving the problems at the end of each chapter, the author asks questions the reader will not understand. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Shake 'N Bake
