A Student's Guide to Vectors and Tensors,
This review is from: A Student's Guide to Vectors and Tensors (Paperback)
Many otherwise excellent maths books suffer from a serious failing - they fail to provide solutions to the problems they contain and so render themselves of limited value for private study. Professor Fleisch's book is most decidedly not one of these: fully detailed solutions as well as the option to view stepwise hints are provided on the website referenced in the book.
In addition, the actual text develops one of the clearest, simplest and most thorough presentations of the essential material concerning vectors and their systematic extension to tensors that I have encountered. The text also covers applications of both vectors and tensors that will prove useful to physics and engineering students as well as those commencing a study of general relativity.
