Book Description

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 Blanks comprehensive text, where these topics are discussed in two unique chapters.

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.

5Easy to understand book for beginner
By RY
This is my first economic class I took in my MS. This book helps a lot to explain the complicated thing and make it easy to understand. The example and the questions are helpful.
