Mental note: Out of all the engineering textbooks I have set my eyes on in the last 3 years, this has the MOST annoying cover.
Even then, try and make your rich friend buy it.
There is nothing in here to justify a price tag over $100. The content itself is vague. The example problems are poorly written and lack explanation. The HW problems are nothing more than simple math exercises that you have already done several years ago.
The programming problems will make you pull out your hair. The author thinks "pseudo code" is good enough to get you through the homework. It won't. Not unless you're actually a programming major.
If you're a civil/mechanical/aeronautical/chemical engineer you will shoot yourself over this book.
My friend and I got a good laugh out of one particular example problem. The author apparently wanted to make the example as hard as possible to follow. So he had decimals mixed up with fractions...multiplied things by 3/.3 instead of just saying 10. Left out sig figs. Failed to state was formulas he was using.....the works.
This book is really bad. I seriously think the author is schizophrenic. Or he is getting senile.
If you need to study the material, just search google books for free alternatives. Even wikipedia will teach you more than this book will.
I was super excited about this. However, only one of the pages in the book had a printing defect or something. The corner was folded and when I unfolded it the entire corner was extruding the book. I found this really awkward but I can easily just cut it off. I did pay for what I get. I saved $41.74 by getting this edition which was paperback instead of hardcover. It was also shipped all the way from India but still got here faster than what I expected which is great because school started a week ago so the faster the better.
