5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Maths with a vengeance, 15 July 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Engineering Mathematics (Paperback)
It is years since I've studied maths (or math, if you prefer).

As I'm about to embark on a course of study with a significant maths content (and, of course, engineering!), I trawled around for a good refresher book that would help me through. After doing a number of searches, this book kept cropping us as being highly recommended, and I can see why.

Firstly, it's big: over 1000 pages and a couple of kilograms.

Secondly, it's presented in a very interesting fashion. It feels almost like an online interactive class, rather than just reading a book. There are lots of quizzes, tests and even in the midst of a chapter, you'll be prompted to work things out and write down your answers.

As an instructor of many years, I know how much more effective materials are when they force you to interact, rather than just read.

The writing is simple (or as simple as maths can be) and the subjects appear to be well explained. I'm not sure that you could learn maths just from these books, but in conjunction with lectures and tutorials, then I feel that you'd have no problem.

And lastly the scope of the material is vast. I'm hoping that this book, and its partner "Advanced Engineering Mathematics", will see me through the course.

The only challenge now is working my way through them both. But my initial impression is that this is something that I'm actually going to enjoy.
