More About the Author

Dexter James Booth
Dexter was educated in Wales and Canada being awarded a PhD in Theoretical Physics in 1970 by the University of Victoria in British Columbia. Since that time he has taught in a variety of institutions, finally retiring from the University of Huddersfield as a Principal Lecturer in 2007. His abiding interest in the teaching of mathematics has spurred him to produce over thirty books in mathematics, statistics and computing and this latest Think of a number . . . is his first venture into eBook publishing. It was inspired by a desire to expand his annual first lecture to his engineering students who were exposed to a rather wildly extravagant description of the place of numbers in the general scheme of things. The whole point of the book is to display the elements of the structure of the number system in a fairly unintimidating way. Whilst the approach is unconventional and not in the least bit rigorous it does expose Dexter's approach to education in general - at least the students seemed to appreciate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engineering Mathematics 10 July 2002
Without doubt the best textbook that I have ever read. I first came across this book whilst studying for a Physics degree and since then I have used the book on countless occasions. K A Stroud has managed to create a book that teaches you as well as if you were actually in a lecture. Split into Programmes of study, each is sub-divided into Frames. The beginning of each Frame is almost a Dummies guide to... and yet by the time you reach Frame 15 you're strolling through some complex problems, as if you had been familiar with the subject for years. If all Physics and Engineering books were like this I'd have breezed through all of my exams. Unfortunately I only breezed through maths.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For Engineering Students 14 July 2005
I know a lot of UK universities recommend this but if your university advises anything else, ignore them. Engineering Mathematics is the best text book I used in the course of my degree and I still use it today. I was fortunate to have a good maths lecturer but on the odd occasions I got lost during a lecture (or if I was unable to attend), following the relevant areas in Engineering Mathematics soon got me up to speed.
The book is split into a series of 28 programmes taking you from the simple stuff like Complex Numbers through more difficult subjects like Calculus. There is some statistics in there two. Each programme is broken out into a series of exercises which if you follow through sequentially take you from the basics in such a well devised step by step way that you never feel there is too big of a leap being made which is a problem with some other maths books.
Thank you K. A. Stroud for helping me through my degree!

Three things to start off with:
1) I very much doubt whether I would have passed my first year in electronic engineering without this book.
2) This is not a reference textbook. It is a mathematics course.
3)This book (5th edition) does contain laplace transforms, partial differentiation and multiple integrals. It doesn't contain Taylor series in two variables, which is slightly annoying but minor.
The great thing about this book is that though not a book you can use to quickly refer to to find out some equations (I find Engineering Mathematics by Croft, Davidson and Hargreaves useful for that.) but for when you're actually learning the stuff, ie you don't understand things before you open the book. If you've gone back to your room afte a few weeks of lectures on a subject you really don't understand, open this book, find the relevant chapter and work your way through it. At the end of this, unlessyou're on an engineering course by complete mistake, you WILL have a good grasp of that subject. I has this book on my shelf for a year at uni and occasionally used it as reference (possible if hard), and failed my maths exam. Over the summer, I worked my way systematically through most of the book, and at the end of August, passed my resit exam. I don't think I could have survived without it.
The book is divided up into chapters with about 50 frames in each which you work through, lots of examples and worked solutions given, and some test questions at the end (plus loads of 'further questions' for each chapter.) You could probably work through this in parallel with a lecture course if you so wished, it may give you a different method of explaining things to what your lecturerer says, which can be useful.

K A Strouds books; Engineering Mathematics and Further Engineering Mathematics are quite simply the finest texts of its kind. K A Stroud clarifies any difficulties or lack of understanding with upmost ability. In a nutshell any mathematics is made easy. All students with engineering maths/pure maths within their course should buy this, confusion will be a thing of the past, these books got me from a fail at A-Level maths to a 2:1 in Engineering. Brilliant

5.0 out of 5 stars This book saved my life! 30 Dec 2006
By Mark
Never a great fan of mathematics and only got through maths A level by cramming and learning a load of stuff by memory without really understanding it. When I went on to do a degree in electronics maths was an integral part of the syllabus and it was the one part of the course I was dreading. Then somebody recommended this book to me and I bought it out of desperation and hope. My God! What a revelation, for the first time here was a maths text book that helped me to understand exactly what was going on and took me step by step through increasingly difficult problems. I actually enjoyed using it, and that's something I never thought I'd say about a maths text book. Once I understood what I was supposed to be doing I started to enjoy doing it and my confidence grew. At my first year exams I actually got my best marks in maths. I never would have believed it possible at the beginning of the year. It's not a heavyweight maths text book but it's ideal for people who need to do maths as part of a technical degree course.

I studied this book as part of my degree several years ago (several chapters a week no less) and I'm still lending this battered book to other people who require an understanding of Engineering Mathematics. I reccommend this book to anybody who wishes to understand Mathematics quickly, or who want a quick refresher.
