2Problems In Book
By Albert
There problems in the book and you have no idea about and spend many hours wondering why a problem was solved that way when in fact it was wrong and you just wasted all your time on that one dumb problem.

4I thought it helped me. You have to do the problem out by hand to understand the stuff.
By A customer
I liked the problems being worked out in the book. First physics course I have taken out of six courses that was practical.

If you take a dynamics course, which comes after statics, you will see Statics type problems and Free Body diagrams again, but the math will be more complex.

1This would have to be one of the worst textbooks I've ever come across...
By Michael J. Wilson
This is easily one of the worst textbooks I have ever come across. I hate to be honest about it, but statics is a hard subject to learn/teach. The sample problems are far too simple to be useful in figuring out how to do problems at the end of the chapters. My instructor isn't too bad. I feel like I understand most things in lecture, but I get stuck almost immediately when I sit down to do problems from this book. I feel the chapters do not present enough information to do the problems at the end of the chapters. I dislike this book. I strongly recommend you not buy this book. There is also no student's solutions manual for it. The book itself is very unhelpful. It is also way too expensive and really isn't worth the money. I think the least they could have done was come up with a student's solutions manual to help students understand the steps when they get stuck on a problem. I guess the publishers just don't care enough.
