The book is organized into programmes or mini chapters. Each programme covers a specific topic. The author provides a brief explanation of the concept involved and then worked examples. You then have the opportunity to work a problem, and then a detailed solution is provided right away.
The writing is clear and concise. Each programme is a condensed yet powerful presentation of the basic concepts. The book covers a broad range of topics, but there are some advanced topics that are not included.
In summary, I highly recommend this book.
However, you couldn't ask for a clearer presentation. The author holds your hand and explains and illustrates absolutely everything he presents. Just don't get the idea that by going through this book you have learned everything an engineering student should know about trigonometry, calculus, etc. The big ideas are here, but you'll need other sources and more background to be an expert. Clearly written and practical math books are hard to come by, so I would definitely recommend it as a reference that should be on every engineer's bookshelf.
I returned to college two years ago to finish a degree. I finished high school more than 20 years ago and bought the book as a review/refresher product, and secondarily as a guide for more advanced mathematics that I have not yet learned. I'm not fond of math, but it is a fundamental part of my new career field.
- Absolutely spectacular breadth of coverage
- Some different approaches from what I was taught in school. Some of these approaches have provided additional insight.
- Very clear, step-by-step explanations walk you through each problem
- Plenty of practice problems with solutions
However, I keep finding errors. They're not on every page, but they're there, and that's a very bad thing for readers trying to review and learn additional mathematics. I could find no errata on the publisher's companion website. I've been running into errors a lot lately, reading computer science and mathematics texts, and it's very frustrating. I was a different kind of engineer in the Army, and we made it a high priority to get things right, the first time. I wish the publishing world would pick up on the practice.
