This is a good book on Sudoku for kids. The book includes only 48 puzzles half of which are simple 4x4 grids and the other half are more difficult 9x9 grids The solutions are at the end of the book. There are no categories or levels of difficulty for the puzzles.
The first two pages in this book are dedicated for strategy, hints, rules, or tips. All the puzzles in the book are Classic Sudoku (with numbers). There are no Alphabet Sudoku (with letters) or Symbol Sudoku (with shapes and symbols) like the two books "Kindergarten Sudoku" and "Preschool Sudoku". Also, there are no simple 6x6 puzzles like some of the other books.

This is a good book on Sudoku for kids. The book includes 151 puzzles. All the puzzles are 9x9 grids with many not really suited for young children. The solutions are at the end of the book. There are five categories or levels of difficulty for the puzzles.
The first twelve pages in this book are dedicated for strategy, hints, rules, or tips. All the puzzles in the book are Classic Sudoku (with numbers). There are no Alphabet Sudoku (with letters) or Symbol Sudoku (with shapes and symbols) like the two books "Kindergarten Sudoku" and "Preschool Sudoku". Also, there are no simple 4x4 puzzles like some of the other books.

This is a good book to use to learn MATLAB especially designed for engineers. The first chapter covers problem solving with various examples. The second chapter introduces MATLAB and its basics. This is followed in chapters 3 and 4 by discussion of arrays and matrices, and control flow (If and For loops, etc). Chapter 5 covers statistical concepts and their use in MATLAB. This is followed in Chapters 6 and 7 by matrix computations and graphing (two and threedimensional plots). Chapters 815 cover numerical methods but the coverage is not comprehensive. One major feature of the book is the diversity of the examples and applications that are provided. However, this book is rather old and may not cover some of the new features that were added in the latests MATLAB versions. If you are just beginning to learn MATLAB, check the book "MATLAB for Beginners: A Gentle Approach."

This is an introductory book on MATLAB for engineers. There is a section on problem solving in Chapter 1. This is followed in Chapter 2 and 3 by matrix operations, and files, functions, and data structures. Programming, plotting, and model building are discussed in Chapters 4 and 5. Solving linear algebraic equations is presented in Chapter 6. This is followed in Chapter 7 by statistical functions and interpolaton. Chapter 8 teaches calculus and differential equations. Finally, computer algebra with the symbolic math toolbox is discussed in Chapter 9. The examples presented are diverse from various branches of engineering. However, if you are just beginning to learn MATLAB, check the book "MATLAB for Beginners: A Gentle Approach."

This is a good book on MATLAB but it is not designed for beginners. This book covers the basics, programming, graphics, linear algebra, and numerical methods. It also has a chapter on symbolic computing with MATLAB using the Symbolic Math Toolbox. However, if you are just beginning to learn MATLAB, check the book "MATLAB for Beginners: A Gentle Approach".

This is a huge and comprehensive book about MATLAB but definitely not for beginners. It can also be used as a reference. It covers everything you need to know about MATLAB  even classes and objectoriented programming. However, if you are just beginning to learn MATLAB, you may want to check the book "MATLAB for Beginners: A Gentle Approach".

This is an introductory book to MATLAB. It covers the basics including programming. It also has a chapter on numerical methods. Both twodimensioanl graphs and three dimensional graphs are also discussed. At the end of the book, the author provides a brief introduction to the Symbolic Math Toolbox. If you are just beginning to learn MATLAB, you may also want to check the book "MATLAB for Beginners: A Gentle Approach".

Not recommended for children, 5 April 2008
There are 72 sudoku puzzles in this book. All the puzzles are 9x9 grids. The solutions are all at the end of the book. The first 4 pages contain hints and strategies for solving Sudoku puzzles. Many of the puzzles in this book are hard  definitely not for children. For simpler puzzles, check the two books "The Big Book of Kindergarten Sudoku" and "More Kindergarten Sudoku" for a variety of simple 4x4 puzzles especially designed for children.

This book has 120 Sudoku puzzles with grids of 4x4, 6x6, and 9x9. All the puzzles are of the classic type using numbers. There are no alphabet sudoku puzzles that are played with letters. The puzzles increase gradually in difficulty from the beginning to the end of the book. Although this book is for kids, the simple 4x4 puzzles are limited to only 20 puzzles. For a book with solely 4x4 puzzles and with alphabet sudoku, check the book "Kindergarten Sudoku".
