I have been using a copy of this reference since I got started with Matlab about a year and a half ago. It is very good for beginners who need to look up how to do general tasks such as write a function using variable arguments, perform plotting, or figure out how to shoe-horn a problem into Matlab that doesn't really seem to fit the Matlab paradigm of everything being a matrix. I also particularly like the chapter on using Matlab with Java. Of course, if you are a more advanced user, this book will seem too simplistic. Even now, though, it's the first book I go to when I have a question that does not involve one of the specialized Matlab toolboxes.Read more ›

I am going to also write a review on "Matlab Guide", I will be also comparing the two books in the reviews.
If you are considering Matlab as a scientific computing language - look no more. It has licensened the "Maple Kernal" as part of its "Math Symbolic ToolBox", it uses LAPAK from FORTRAN for the algorithms for Matrix operations; it uses a high level language (very C++ like) and its own consise syntax for matrix manipulations as well as "Handle Graphics" to produce impressive looking plots and reports. In otherwords, it combines the best of various approaches. If you do not know C++, I advise that learn that first before attempting to learn Matlab.
Comparing "Mastering Matlab 6" (MM6) to "Matlab Guide" (MG):
*Both books are NOT for absolute Beginners, I think the assumption is that you will first study the book that comes with Matlab and the supurb "Help" Documentation that comes with the program. There are also good starting out tutorials on the net - search: "Matlab; Tutorial". The US Navy has a consise tutorial to get you started.
*MM6 does a better job on teaching to the next level beyond the Mathworks supplied documentation and beggining Tutorials.
*MM6 WINS HANDSDOWN ON TEACHING version new to 6.0 specific features. You are short changing yourself by going for a 5.0 text.
*MM6 is geared more towards a programmer/scientist/engineer; whereas, MG is geared to a mathematician. MM6 is comprehensive (800 pages!), but well organized that you can branch off to a given chapter without covering all prior chapters. Because I had a problem to solve, I started on Chapter 18, "Interpolation" without any problems. If you have no immediate issue - taking the book in order is advised.

I use this book everyday. It is easy to find what you need right away. Although, MatLab has demos that you can use to write programs or m-scripts, the book has features that are not in the demos that will make writing scripts much easier. It doesn't go into great detail with more difficult plots but allows for the those who just need 1-D, 2-D and simple 3-D plots to plot data points easily and fast. This is definitely the bible for first time users of MatLab.

This book is well written, well laid-out, well programmed and will be useful to anyone either as an introduction, as a reference or as a learning guide companion to ML. It tries to be as general as possible - with concise but very clear text - and still manages to illustrate with good code examples most of the material it covers, which is quite extensive. You won't be left with a single major feature or important language instruction of ML left uncovered.
I am familiar so far with the books 'Advanced Engineering Mathematics with ML' by Haman et al and 'An Engineer's Guide to ML' by Magrab et al. Both are excellent books and these 3 texts complement themselves in many ways. But if I had to have a single ML book, I would prefer this one without a doubt.

This is one of the best books on Matlab I have read. Mastering Matlab takes you step by step on the basics of Matlab and even goes on to some more advanced topics. Once you get past the basics in the first couple of chapters, you can skip ahead to the chapter with the topic you are interested in.

The book gives clear expanations and lots of examples. One of my university professors recommended this book to me.

If you want to learn matlab, get this book. As the title suggests, after reading the book you will master matlab.

If you're not sure about buying this book, I would suggest going to your university library and checking it out. I kept borrowing it out over and over, until I decided I should buy my own copy so that I always have a handy reference at hand.
