4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful 4 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whether you are learning Matlab on your own, or using it as an accompaniment, this book guides you through simple exercises first. It takes you through more difficult problems as you progress. I would recommend that you read through the worked examples in the book, then try and do it on your own a few times until you eventually can do it without looking at the book, which really builds your confidence. For this book to be really useful, you need to practise as you go along. This isn't a book just to read. Very well presented, and better than previous editions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall good 11 Mar 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Depends what you need - it clarified a few very very basic things, but doesn't explain how to implement Euler / Runga-Kutta / Du-Fort Frankel nor Crank-Nicolson methods which I feel are essential for engineers.

5.0 out of 5 stars should have started with this book first 24 July 2013
By Ernest Bylander - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After trying several "how-to" books I tried this one. It is a winner and is written by an excellent teachers. I have MatLab because it is required by the book: "Tutorial on Neural Systems Modeling". And MatLab seems to have a very steep learning curve, and this book seems to scale the methods of ML successfully. I have used various such programs over the years: Basic, from DOS thru 3 HP versions and Visual Basic, Mathcad, 2 versions of Linux, C, C+, Mathematica etc. Also MatLab is based on Matrices, and I have had undergrad vectors, graduatecourse in Matrices, and a few Matrix Quantum Mechanics courses. However I found Matlab almost insurmountable. Hahn and Valentine overcome these drawbacks and even show where tutorials can also be found on the MatLab site. As an aside, it took from last October through this February to lease some part of MatLab. And several books later did help-some until this summer when I bought this book. I find this book to be the answer to my learning difficulties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductionary book 29 Aug 2013
By Oleg Agafonov - Published on
It is an excellent introductionary book, which I often use as a reference. It is well written; it has good structure and useful examples. It would be very useful if you just started to use Matlab and it provides good overview of Matlab's major functions.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction to MatLab 22 Oct 2013
By Gerry Pete - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Essential MatLab for Engineers and Scientists is an excellent introduction to MatLab and I would assume a good reference for experienced users. I purchased the R2013b version of the program whereas the text appears to be based on the 2012 version. In general, I think that Amazon should require the publishers to indicate the version of software on which the ebooks are based as I have downloaded ebooks that are not at all useful for the current versions. If the author updates the text of Essential MatLab for Engineers and Scientists, I would like to see additional information on the use of Tex and/or LaTex to incorporate Greek and other symbols for publishing MatLab output.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not excelente! 13 Mar 2014
By Joćo Manuel Ferreira Verde - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are some errors in the book. Excellent book for beginners - it has solutions and many problems solved. It is not bad choice but if you want to evolve have to buy another book. Maybe one month after start working on Matlab.
