5Engineering Mechanics: Statics (12th Edition) [Hardcover] by Russell C. Hibbeler
By CDP's Onceagain habit of purchasing
This is a very good text on the subject matter, Engineering Mechanics: Statics (12th Edition) [Hardcover] by Russell C. Hibbeler is the best text on the subject or one of the best I have used. I have other books on this subject for the student of physics and Engineering. This book is extremely thorough and details the study of Statics wonderfully and in it's 12th printing edition has been honed to a great book. I love it.

3Not as thorough as I would have hoped
By Chris Wilson
If this is required by a class this will be less of a reason to get it and more of an early warning. The material in this book is extremely straight forward. I highly recommend you look at it carefully and understand everything it is trying to say. There are few examples to illustrate the ideas unfortunately and the homework plays more off what is said than what is shown. I recommend getting outside help, working in groups, or paying attention to any examples given in class to fully understand how this subject works.

4It is very detailed and give you a great idea of what statics is
By Joshua Watkins
This book was required for a Statics class I took 3 years ago. It is very detailed and give you a great idea of what statics is. The example problems are very helpful and easy to follow. It has solutions for the odd numbers and it will give you a better direction if you are lost. It also is a nice read/study material if you are entering or taking a strengths of materials class.
