5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 16 Jun 2010
By Catriona Reid VINE VOICE
In my First Year of my undergraduate degree, I bought a lot of textbooks, but easily the ones I used the most (and continue to use!) were this, and Volume 1 of the same series. If you only have the money for one or two textbooks, GET THESE.

This volume focuses on particle technology and separation processes. Although not as fundamental as the subjects covered by Volume 1, they are still very useful when it comes to understanding of distillation, filtration, mixing, and so on. The writing is clear and easy to understand, and there are plenty of illustrations, graphs, and tables to aid in understanding. There are also problem sets, which can be used as a supplement to tutorials, coursework, and revision to ensure that understanding has been reached.

I've been graduated for a year and I still go back and refer to these books. If you have them, you won't need much else for your degree.

The hallowed Coulson and Richardson really is THE key to unlocking the problems of chemical engineering. As a first year undergraduate, i found this book very useful in all aspects of my course from Process Analysis to Fluid Flow. You're tutors may recommend this book along with a score of others, but my advice is that if you buy only one book in your freshman year, make it this one.
Coulson and Richardson is not only an invaluable resource for chemical engineeres, it is also easy to use, unlike so many others. Information is clear and comprehensive and there are tutorial problems to guide you through the course.
So forget about Stroud and Perry's, Coulson and Richardson will be your best purchase throughout university- not only will it give you a solid basis in the fundamentals of chem eng. it will serve you all the way to masters level.
And once you've finished volume one- there are at least another five volumes that i know of to sink your teeth into!
