I bought both of these books while I was doing my A level Maths and am still using them while in second year Honours Degree Maths. I do buy other books as well which take the subject further but I invariably find that I always come back to these two wonderful books. My view is if you are an engineering student working to a budget; if you only buy two books ever, you'll not go wrong with these two

i am reading for a degree in Infortmation Technology Engineering, after 8 years of working and no studying I needed a quick crash course in advanced mathematics to bring me up to speed with the other students in my course...
these books were suggested to me by a friend... what can i say... i never studied advanced mathematics and by simply (and patiently) studying these two books well i excel in maths compared to the other students...
these books are THE BEST books in maths you'll ever come across... especially if like me you want to teach yourself...
i recommend them to anyone who likes maths... university or not!

I can wholeheartedly say that Stroud's series (Engineering Mathematics and Advanced) helped ensure a good grade for my mathematics modules for my first year in Electrical/Electronic Engineering. It treats topics very systematically, gives summaries and tables, which are especially useful for those mechanical math techniques such as in integration, they are listed in a way so you can use it for quick reviews later as well. It explains concepts with good detail without being tediously daunting to read, it achieves what very few math books (in my experience) are able to. Advanced Engineering mathematics is helpful for some of the basic mathematical topics in 2nd year too, for instance Vector Calculus (Divergence thm., Curl etc), Z transforms , some of COnformal Mappings, Complex Integration etc.

It would be great if Stroud produced another version with the more advanced mathematical concepts and one for advanced statistics.

In any case if you are in your first two years as an Undergraduate in any Engineering course, this series is a must-have!

I didn't take A-level maths, but convinced my university to let me take Engineering anyway because my Physics grades were good. Anyway, the my lectures required that I read these books (Engineering Mathematics and Advanced Engineering Mathematics) because with my background I was 'at risk' of not being able to complete the course, so I went right through both of them from cover to cover. The books go from the most simple Algebra all the way through to Complex Integration and Non-Linear optimisation. The books are unique in that they make it so easy to progress from one subject to the next in a gentle step-wise manner. The non-nonsense, clear style stopped mathematics feeling like a stuffy and in-penetrable subject.

I said that this was the best investment you'll ever make, that's because I picked up both of these books for £60 new. Without this material, I would not have a first-class engineering degree or a lucrative career writing scientific software. I still use the information I learned from these books on a daily basis.

Warning: Owning these books is not a silver bullet. You have to be committed to work through them end to end including using the examples.

Format: Paperback
I am a second year Aeronautics student and I highly recommend this book. The best bit about the book is that all steps in calculations are included so you don't get lost which can be a problem in other text books. The work is set out in a well ordered way, broken down into many sections with constant exercises, tests and reviews. This allows you to follow methods of working step by step from easy examples to the much harder examples (the ones you need for the exams) and also makes each chapter quick to work through and understand. It really is all you could want in a maths text book.

Advanced Engineering Mathematics is the second of Ken Stroud's books. It again takes the programmed study approach used in the first book (Engineering Mathematics), and is aimed principally at the second year of undergraduate engineering courses, although some topic areas could equally be found in A level and HNC/HND mathematics courses.
My opinion? Quite simply absolutely excellent! Engineering Mathematics and Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Ken Stroud are just about all you will need for an engineering degree course to deal with any problems you will have with the principal areas of the mathematics. Remember, I have been where you are (or are going) and you can take it from me, these books are not only an investment but almost certainly the best mathematics books you will ever own. They will pay for themselves time and time again when you hit the mathematical wall! There are some similar books around these days, but these books are the real McCoy. To be without them on an undergraduate engineering degree course is simply unthinkable. It would be like cutting your own throat mathematically speaking! GET THEM!! I guarantee you will not regret it.
A note to the authors and editor of these books....thank you for making mathematics a joy to learn. Your books are a major contributing factor in my degree success, and the success of countless thousands of other post and undergraduates alike. Thank you for making the effort to make mathematics a topic we can all enjoy, learn, and succeed in.
