This text covers the basic techniques and applications of engineering economy for all disciplines in the engineering profession.
The writing style emphasizes brief, crisp coverage of the principle or technique discussed in order to reduce the time taken to present and grasp the essentials.
The objective of the text is to explain and demonstrate the principles and techniques of engineering economic analysis as applied in different fields of engineering. This brief text includes coverage of multiple attribute evaluation for instructors who want to include non-economic dimensions in alternative evaluation and the discussion of risk considerations in the appendix, compared to Blank's comprehensive text, where these topics are discussed in two unique chapters.

Good book with lots of good materials. Some of the explinations seemed a bit incomplete, causing me to use the internet and other books to search for the correct methods. Otherwise I would have given five starts.

This is probably the worse book I've had to read in college
This is probably the worse book I've had to read in college. most examples are not clear, it does a poor job at attempting to explain their solutions and reasoning. If I could i would give this book zero stars.

It's ok. One of those books "required" by your school to purchase. Still just ok. If you want to learn engineering well you will need to look elsewhere for books. I bought a collection of engineering books from the Philippines on my visit there. No collection of engineering books has ever topped those. Those books had a least 400 practice problems fully worked out with step-by-step instructions, with an introduction paragraph summarizing each section quickly and to the point. It's said how we have not been able to adopt those books in our universities. This book is just that - ok to get by.
