I have used and looked at over a dozen MATLAB textbooks throughout my undergrad study, and I can confidently say this is by far the best one for anyone to pick up MATLAB from scratch. More importantly, this is the only MATLAB textbook that I have come across that teaches the concept of programming so readers can pick up the basics and start writing their own scripts. Many MATLAB textbooks only teach how to use certain functions/features but fail terribly to impart the fundamentals of MATLAB - something that students really need to know so they can use MATLAB efficiently for their homework/projects/etc.
I was a tutor/teaching assistant for some engineering courses and headed a few MATLAB workshops for BU Students while in college. I wish this book were published earlier - it would have made many students' lives a lot easier.
Attaway's Preface clearly explains that the "purpose of this book is to teach basic programming concepts and skills needed for basic problem solving, all using MATLAB as the vehicle." This book is not primarily aimed at computer science types or accomplished programmers who need to use MATLAB (although it might help make their MATLAB-specific code more efficient) - it's more oriented toward people who need to use MATLAB, but do not already know how to program.
Throughout the book, important terms are typeset in bold and clearly defined.Read more ›
I certainly recommend this book to anyone from beginner programmers to those seeking a way to best refresh their MATLAB knowledge!
I used this book when it was still in draft form, to learn Matlab in support of my work as an engineering professor and as an academic researcher. I was trained in Fortran in the late 70's, and had no other significant experience in programming. Nevertheless, a recent new project required me to tackle some challenging problems involving significant matrix computation and instrument control. Matlab was the best language choice for the task, and Stormy's book was my guide. In spare time, a half hour at a time, the book led me through a painless but powerful introduction to the language. I found the examples to be flawlessly presented, and richly informative.
Since completing this book I have integrated Matlab into my teaching and my research, and am grateful to have had Stormy's clear, concise, well-paced introduction as my launchpad.
