Book Description

24 Jun 1999 0198504284 978-0198504283
Mathematics plays a key part in every quantitative and theoretical study, and is taught to all science and engineering students to varying degrees at college. This book spans a large range of topics, from basic arithmetic and algebra to calculus and Fourier transforms and bridges the gap between school and university. Its informal and readable tutorial style should make it accessible to the novice, while its very concise nature will ensure that it's a useful reference for the experienced professional. Although the emphasis may not be on the formal proof of every statement, the conveying of a meaningful understanding of where the results come from is central to aims of this text: it is intended to be much more than just a formula-book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very Good. 15 Dec 2000
I got these books recommended from a friend and I have found that they are brilliant. They start from GCSE maths and then works its way to 2nd Year university Maths. I have found it so useful, as i am a Physics Undergraduate, for my course. It covers everything i need and will be useful to look back at maths i have done in the past, for future reference.

I am currently doing two Open University Maths modules (MST121 & MS221 - both excellent) as part of a Natural Sciences degree. This book parallels much of what I have done on my courses but is written in a different but equally understandable way. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect 17 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A compact and concise presentation of the Maths required for Science or Engineering courses. In fact I don't think there's any other book that covers so much material in less than 100 pages.
The conciseness means you have to pay attention to every single sentence, there is absolutely no fluff in this book.
I found the later chapters reasonably hard going, but managed to get through by looking up certain new ideas on the web.
This book could be the perfect undergrad Maths book - it just needs a new edition where some of the more abstruse concepts in the later chapters are explained in more detail, perhaps with more examples.
