If 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.

A 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.

Buy only if required for class
This book was required for my Materials and Manufacturing Processes class and is the only reason why I purchased it. This book is terrible at teaching concepts and information. The book gives almost no examples on how to use any provided equations and figures are always placed far away from any text explaining them, making it difficult to completely understand graphs and tables, which form the backbone of some chapters. The questions at the end of each chapter ask questions that the book never explained or sometimes even mentioned, making the internet or other books the only possible way to answer them. If the book did cover the question, chances are the question is worded in a way that makes the answer in the book seem like it isn't answering the problem; it's not that I'm not applying my reasoning skills or anything, it's just that the questions and text do not match well at all. Unless this book is required for your course, stay away from it.
