Book Description

Now in its third edition, Ted G. Eschenbach's Engineering Economy: Applying Theory to Practice continues to solidify its reputation as one of the most innovative, authoritative, and reliable texts in Engineering Economics. It provides the tools and concepts--including cost estimating, sensitivity analysis, probability, and multiple objectives--that are necessary to successfully apply engineering economy in industry practice outside of the classroom.

Designed to emphasize the strengths of traditional factors and of spreadsheet coverage, Engineering Economy: Applying Theory to Practice, Third Edition, is an ideal text for undergraduate and beginning graduate-level Engineering Economy courses.

5Best Econ Book Out There
By Rodrtal
I loved this book. This was my 2nd economy course and I didnt even realize how much I didnt learn the 1st time! This book's explanations are quick and concise while giving thorough examples. I also had the pleasure of having Ted as my teacher and he is even better in real life! I plan on keeping this book so that I can continue to use it as a resource throughout my life. I highly recommend this book.

5Very well written
By A. Lohr
Coming into the Cost Analysis class, I was not the biggest fan of engineering economy. This book, however, was very well written and very straight forward. I took this class at a graduate level, and felt it might be more appropriate at an undergraduate level. The concepts are very basic, and though it gets into more difficult problems near the end, the book does a good job of walking the reader through problems step-by-step. It also gives several good examples, though they are not as thorough in the last few chapters.

Overall, kudos to the author for making the subject comprehensible and interesting.
