Engineering Economy (McGraw-Hill Series in Industrial Engineering and Management)
(54 customer reviews)
Engineering Economy, 6th edition, provides undergraduate students and practicing professionals with a solid preparation in the financial understanding of engineering problems and projects, as well as the techniques needed for evaluating and making sound economic decisions. Information on cost estimation, depreciation, and taxes has been updated to conform to new tax laws and a majority of the end-of-chapter problems are revised or new to this edition.
Distinguishing pedagogical characteristics of this market-leading text include its easy-to-read writing style, chapter objectives, worked examples, integrated spreadsheets, case studies, Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam questions, and numerous end-of-chapter problems. Graphical cross-referencing is indicated so users are able to locate additional material on any one subject in the text. While the chapters are progressive, over three-quarters can stand alone, allowing instructors flexibility for meeting course needs. A complete Online Learning Center (OLC) offers supplemental practice problems, spreadsheet exercises, review questions for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, and more!

this is probably the single most useful class I took in college
By Quan M. Tran
I gave it a four star because the book is somewhat confusing due to the author's writing style. There's nothing wrong with the physical book. That earns a five star. And I bought the international edition, which is the same as the US edition, just paperback, cheaper, and printed on thinner paper. Content was identical to my classmate's book. Writing style aside, this is probably the single most useful class I took in college. I still use the book, and I've been out of college for a few years. Everything from student loans to house mortgage to everything in between.

It gets the job done, but you will get sleepier than you ever have in your entire life trying to read it. Not really the books fault, just economics in general.

Difficult to understand
The concepts in this book are not hard, but the book is ambiguous and difficult to read. The author's do not do a very good job at explaining details but luckily the concepts of this book are similar to normal economy but on a larger scale.
