5.0 out of 5 stars Saviour
I am not an engineer nor a mathematician and so taking an MSc in Environmental Engineering may have been foolish given the strong needs for maths. One module, Fluid Mechanics, on the MSc has left me lost until I came across this book in its first edition. On learning that there was a second edition I bought it and have been reading it eagerly because I have an exam coming...

I am not an engineer nor a mathematician and so taking an MSc in Environmental Engineering may have been foolish given the strong needs for maths. One module, Fluid Mechanics, on the MSc has left me lost until I came across this book in its first edition. On learning that there was a second edition I bought it and have been reading it eagerly because I have an exam coming up.

This is an excellent primer which covers all the areas I need in a clear, concise and logical manner. Concepts which were lost on me have now come to life having read Mr. Kay's text.

I would happily recommend this book to anyone needing to revise fluid mechanics or, like me, has no mathematics or engineering background and is called upon to learn the subject.

Some of the maths though could be explained a little better.
