Book Description

This textbook is ideal for MATLAB/Introduction to Programming courses in both Engineering and Computer Science departments. It is also a suitable introduction for beginning programmers.

Engineering Computation with MATLAB introduces the power of computing to engineering students who have no programming experience. The book places the fundamental tenets of computer programming into the context of MATLAB, employing hands-on exercises, examples from the engineering industry, and a variety of core tools to increase programming proficiency and capability. With this knowledge, students are prepared to adapt learned concepts to other programming languages.

5Only had the book for a short time.
By LyndaB
I didn't really delve into the book very deeply as the class instructor didn't include much material that was covered by the content. It looked like a reasonably well laid out book however.

Amazing quality, like new except for one barely dogeared corner otherwise pages and cover are clean and pristine.

This book is written in JARGONS. If you are new to MATLAB, this book will NOT help you understand it. YouTube will do a better job and you will save you some bucks. I am in CS 1371 where neither the teacher nor this book helps FML.
