Engineering Mechanics - Statics (10th Edition)
(320 customer reviews)
Offers a concise and thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and application. The material is reinforced with numerous examples to illustrate principles and imaginative, well-illustrated problems of varying degrees of difficulty. The book is committed to developing users' problem-solving skills. Features new "Photorealistc" figures (approximately 200) that have been rendered in often 3D photo quality detail to appeal to visual learners. Features a large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. A thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and applications includes some of these topics: Force Vectors; Equilibrium of a Particle; Force System Resultants; Equilibrium of a Rigid Body; Structural Analysis; Internal Forces; Friction; Center of Gravity and Centroid; Moments of Inertia; and Virtual Work. For professionals in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics careers.

Best dynamics book
By Tristan L
By far one of the best books I've bought in my university experience.
Hibbeler goes into unsurpassed detail in the topics included in such a way that this book is a great reference for later on in a mechanical engineering academic career.
The homework uses different scenarios to help with the understanding of the material so that a student can succeed in their class.
I would recommend this to any student where Statics and dynamics are required in their course plan.

By John Stovall
If you have a strong back and don't mind the bulk, this combination version is far cheaper than buying both individually. As with any textbook, there are a few errors in the text and problems, but they're usually apparent. The fundamental problems are worked step by step in the back of the book so you can always reference similar problems when doing homework. Dynamics might kill me, but the book was still a great buy.

Just another awful text book.
This book is awful. The author should have explained several topics better, the a lot of the diagrams are too small, the equations and writing all run together making everything hard to read. I've compared my book to two others and there are no differences between this edition and the 10th and 12th editions. If you can buy a different book.
