5My best economic book for analysis in engineering costs.
By jaime zamora alvarado
In this book I learned how to consider the fixed, variables, average and marginal cost and how to show them over a graph with data.
I like its containt, formulas, examples, alternatives and methods for investments, benefits and expenses, all in the economic way.

I love this engineering economic analysis.

The book came in on time and in perfect condition.
I liked it because it was cheap and in good condition. Similar products would be far more expensive.
