Better Than Most But Could Improve More
By Austin Grant
As a civil engineering student I was required to purchase this book and I wasn't about to pay the $300 at my university's bookstore so I settled for the kindle version instead costing $153 at the time. As an ebook it was easy enough to work with from a computer or iPad and I will most certainly reference it in future subjects. The hardcover version which most students splurged on was of a surprising smaller size then expected given the depth of the subject, yet the quality makes up for the quantity mostly I guess. It is set up incredibly well with beautiful illustrations that show engineering as the art form it truly is and the examples are extraordinarily useful; however, one or two additional problems in each chapter could have helped silidify some of the later topics. Unfortunately like with any advanced math or engineering textbook the occasional error was found in the book's solutions which was rather concerning. Hopefully they take greater care with the next edition to prevent these mistakes because engineers need to know how to properly design a bridge or any structure without error.

Awesome Engineering Book!
By Julina R Corona
I already rated the CD that comes with the book in accident instead of the book so I will keep this short. This book is a must have for civil/structural majors. I bought it in undergrad, kept it after the classes I used it for were over and know I use it for review or reference in my grad classes. Love this book. It's very simple to read, good intro to structural analysis and great reference for when you need to remember a specific analysis method. Structural students buy this book and keep it.

Great Book For Structural Analysis
This book is written in a format that is easy to follow and understand, examples are plenty and explained well. Includes plenty of problems to work through; this is one of the few books were I can't say that the problems are much harder/different than the given examples because the basic fundamentals and steps applied to an example will solve any problem in the chapter.
