review for schaum's outline serires on Fortran77 programming 11 Jun. 2000
By mohnish chaturvedi - Published on
Format: Paperback
well what can i say about one of the most preferred series for programming. this one is a real wacko 'cause it not only assumes your programming backgrond to be nill from starting therefore helping you to start off instantaneously. what i also liked about this book was the fact that the codes associated with the problems give one enough hands on experience so that one can tackle small scale problems very confidently.. i am sure that this book will prove to be a great help for all those who are looking for a very clear and intutive book for starting off learning Fortran 77

Buy it for what it is 8 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
My undergrad mech. eng. program uses MATLAB exclusively and I now need to learn FORTRAN for graduate school in less than a week. Despite the low rating for this book and knowing that it may be too elementary, I picked it up anyways just because of my experience with Schaum's outline.
Indeed, this book is very elementary and doesn't addresses some of the problems that I might need to solve. But this book is an OUTLINE of programming in FORTRAN. I consider myself an experienced programmer (not expert, just experienced) and I'm halfway through this book in an hour. It shows me all I need to know before I start exploring FORTRAN myself.
Overall, I think this book works like the owner manual for your car. You read it once then put it aside for a couple of years. But for $17, I think this is a very good buy. It will show you what you need to know fast. Just don't expect it to do your laundry and cook your dinner (dorm life humor).

Best for starters!! 23 Feb. 2008
By Timoci Koliyavu - Published on
Format: Paperback
For Fortran beginners this would be a good friend of yours but using it with other books such as Introduction to Fortran or other published tutorials on the web would put the icing to the cake.I recommend 'Interractive fortran 77- A hands on Approach' by Ian D Chivers et al.-which is also an online book to supplement this book.In that way you will be kickin' some fortran.

Very good book 19 Jan. 2008
By Levent Organ - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a very good book for those who does not know programming with fortran 77 but would like to learn it in a relatively short period of time. It is also a good reference for those who writes fortran 77 codes and in need of a source to have a quick look at programming rules and examples. I used this book to write codes for my simulations in my PhD study. I recommend it.
Schaum's Programming with Fortran 77 10 Aug. 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a great book for a quick review of the basics or for someone already experienced in C who needs to, for whatever reason, start programming in Fortran. I've never seriously coded in Fortran before but needed to get up to speed with it. Schaum's Oulines for F77 was a great way to gear up in less than a week and start contributing to the existing code base. Highly recommend this book exactly for that purpose. Also, make sure you don't skip over the Solved Problems section as you could potentially pick up a few tricks from the provided solutions.
