My biggest problem was just trying to get the Professors or TA's or anyone to walk me through some of the equations, so I could get a feel for the math. Like baby-steps pedantic steps, and for some reason trying to get anyone to do that was nigh impossible.
But Signals and Systems Demystified did just that, all the way down to the steps of reminding you a basic calculus and algebra operations. Stuff, Professors and TAs might take for granted in class, but as an older student it was all I was missing. To be walked through basic to medium problems to get a feel for the Math again.
I admit I have only gone through the first part of the book, and I hope the rest is like that, but just getting those answers helped ease a lot of problems I have been having with the first few weeks of class.
David McMahon has done a great thing by writing a book that takes you through the simplest of steps.
This isn't as in-depth as books I've seen in the past (more explicit textbooks), but if you're using this to get competent so you can do other things, it is simply outstanding. If you've got a solid grasp of calculus (it's not for dummies), then you can follow well enough to get the main point.
I was having problems in my digital signal processing class. I was looking for THE book to explain everything to me. This is not that book(for me).
In all fairness, I never did find THE book.
DSP is a tough subject, you probably won't find a book to give you the "A-ha!" moment of clarity.
As with most DSP books, this one does great at explaining the concepts of the signal, but very poorly explaining the math behind it. They assume you have a 100% grasp on the advanced math required(which I don't).
