1If I wanted to confuse and discourage new Engineering students this is the book I would choose.
By James Schardt
The book has typos and mistakes throughout. The tables, many of which are used in the chapter problems, are imprecise to the point of being almost useless. Indeed, some of the answers to the problems are incorrect. I had to use Wikipedia to figure out why some of the problems were not coming out and it turned out to be because the questions gave faulty information. This book sucks. Find something else to use for your Engineering course. Pearson should be ashamed to publish this.

2A poor choice in a textbook
By Vallan Sherrod
This book is not worth the money it costs. It hasn't been proofread from its last edition very well, still referring to old diagrams that aren't renumbered in their proper order. Also, most of the questions it asks for homework actually require that students get the answers online because they don't even address them in the book. Also, there are typos on several equations they report in the book. This can give the students confusion on which equation is actually correct and provides inconsistences in the math the authors exhibit in their examples. Upon looking at some solutions in the solutions manual, it expects students to somehow know they are not incorporating friction when the book doesn't even specify to do so. Overall, it does not seem that this book was well thought out. It seems that it was just put out quick in order to have a new edition from which to make money. I would not recommend this as a textbook for any class.

5Great book, easy to read, and detailed descriptions
By Alan Hunt
Got this book for a materials processing course I took last year. I still come back to it whenever I need a reference for how a manufacturing process generally works.

Detailed descriptions were given so that if I wanted to know more about any given subject, I would know what terms to search for on the Internet.
