Format: Hardcover
This is by far the worst textbook I have ever used. It is absolutely full of glaringly obvious errors--several in every chapter. There are computational mistakes in example problems, unitless variables in exercises, mislabeled diagrams, you name it. On multiple occasions I have been stuck on a problem for quite some time until I realize that a symbol is misplaced in the equation I am trying to work with. Highly unrecommended.

If you are taking a class, it could be fine. But if you are reading it yourself without previous knowledge about the topics, be careful.

There are so many typos in this book, you can not find one page without something wrong. Lots of expression in the book is unclear.

Worst textbook ever. I have got thru the first two examples in the book and each contained errors. I can't even imagine how many total there are in the book!

Book was shipped in time and was great quality. Seems like it was never used before with no marks or tears or bends.
