Essential reading for any engineer
on 15 June 2012
It is all too easy to say 'if only', yet had this textbook been available when I was an engineering undergraduate, then perhaps I might not have struggled so much.
The book starts out with a section on mathematics, which is essential to all engineers, after all, the Dragons from 'Dragons Den' home in on any hapless investee who has not done their sums correctly and engineering is no different. If an engineer can get their sums correct, then the rest is straightforward application of mathematical technique to solve problems in a logical manner, which is exactly the approach adopted by the authors.
Overall, highly recommended reading to all levels of engineering students and practising engineers.
