If your a first year you'll find this incredibly useful to have as a secondary resource, it's literally the first year in book form* and great for reveiwing the weeks work and making sure there are no sticking points. Plus you'll find it invaluable when you enter your second year, realise everything is built on knowledge gained from the first year and realise those 3 months off in summer can make you forget the previous 12 months of lectures.
The book itself is split into 6 main topics each written by the relevant lecturer, and each topic is split into sections with a learning summary, making the book clear and concise. Futhermore, there is a section devoted to questions on topics throughout the book, great to test whether you've learnt a topic or just read it.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
*Note: When I say the book covers your first year, I mean it covers most of the School of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering modules you'll be taking in your first year. In addition to these, you'll also study Design and Manufacture (a generic design module comprising of design drawing, CAE/ProE work on the computer, learning about the principles of design etc), Engineering Maths 1 and 2 (first in autumn, second in spring, neither covered in this book), and Professional Studies. However, I do not feel these modules are missing from the book as I would never look to reference any of these topics in a book as such: there are design manuals (and google) to quickly find any details on design drawings, and the maths modules have very comprehensive notes.
My only gripe, and it is quite a big one, is that the book has clearly not been proofread, or if it has, the person who did it needs to be sacked! It really detracts from the learning because you find yourself questioning correct things in the book because you no longer trust it. As I am reviewing material I have studied before it is perhaps not as serious as for someone going through it for the first time. I've also bought part 2 but they don't seem to have faired any better second time around.

Used for my HNC in Engineering course and it worked a treat, I would recommend this book to any budding engineers and it is used as a course material for some courses.Published on 20 Jan. 2014 by Eezilypleezed
