Book Description

Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam & Kraige's Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. Now in its seventh edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. More than 50% of the homework problems are new, and there are also a number of new sample problems. To help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams-the most important skill needed to solve mechanics problems.

By William Tujague
Has huge amount of practice problems, but is exceedingly sparse on discussion of topics and explanation of how to work problems. Not a great text if you don't have an effective lecturer and/or thorough supplementary notes.

By K. Wilson
It's an OK book. I find it is difficult to understand what exactly the question is asking for, it's rather ambiguous. I tend to judge a books excellence on whether I could learn the subject using only the book itself. I feel that I wouldn't be able to learn this stuff without the lectures accompanying it. Explanations in the book are kind of just glossed over.

4Great
By Ana
Classic dynamics textbook. All of the traditional material is present, along with plenty of problems ranging from trivial to darn near impossible. My only qualm with this book is the length of its proofs - I would have liked longer, more in-depth discussions on derivations of the equations. Also: this book relies completely on scaler math. If you would rather do dynamics with vectors, it is best to find another text.
