Editorial Reviews

Review
'[E]ntirely fit for purpose.' - Times Higher Education Supplement 'Stroud is by far and away the best text book for engineering maths. It is excellent for students to use on their own to reinforce what they have seen in class.' - Esther Norton, Anglia Ruskin University, UK 'This is quite simply the BEST text in the area' - Justin Whitty, University of Central Lancashire, UK 'I recommend this book for self study by students due to the "step by step" approach.' - Alan Crocker, University of the West of England, UK Current reviews of the previous edition from amazon.co.uk: 'This book is essential for undergraduates studying an engineering degree course. Stroud's books fill a vast deficit found in most higher level maths text books, i.e. his books fill in procedural gaps other text books assume will be filled in while attending lectures. Stroud does not 'assume', he teaches...' 'This book is extremely useful...[It] has well written and easy to follow chapters on many different areas. To back this up it has useful examples for each section building up from simple cases to more complex exam style questions. This book really is excellent. If you get one maths book for engineering, get this one.' 'To anyone who is about to undertake, or is indeed in the middle of any engineering degree, this book is a must. The layout and style are cleverly designed to keep you working through the chapters. Don't do engineering without a copy.'

5Excellent Math Text Book
By Richard N
I purchased this book after having purchased, read and enjoyed two of Stroud's other books on Complex Variables and Differential Equations. Based on the excellent quality of those two books I purchased Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Stroud and Booth. I was not disappointed. I can describe the book in two words. "Simply Outstanding". I really like Stroud's approach. He writes tutorials that are easily read and understood. The format of his books takes some getting used to but the content and the way it is presented couldn't be better. This particular book is organized such that it can easily be used as an desk top reference. This is because most of the chapters or "programmes" as Stroud calls them, are either stand alone or are part of a two or three chapter set that can be treated as stand alone references to a particular subject. Knowing what I know now, would I purchase this book again? The answer is yes, the money was well spent.

5Excellent
By Stud Monkey
This along with Stroud's other book "Engineering Mathematics" really do seem to be the only pure math books an engineering undergrad needs. Very well written and just enough hand holding to get you up and running quickly, but not so much as to stunt your progress.

My only issues with these books is that they're British and as such use different terminology making it slightly difficult to find certain techniques at times. The other complaint I have (tongue in cheek) is that this makes it all the more annoying to have purchased about a thousand dollars worth of math texts when this is really all I needed. Further proof that the textbook industry is a scam.

Seriously though, if you think you need something like this, buy THIS BOOK and it's companion. They're that good.

5Used it for my engineering course 25 years ago
By Terry
I bought it after being reminded of how good this book was recently and wanted to make sure I had a copy of it for reference, I have never really dissected why both this and the precursor Engineering Mathematics by KA Stroud are such excellent books but suffice to say it enabled me to attain a 1st in my mathematics class. For students out there who need a clear and simple approach to complex mathematics for Engineering then I highly recommend this book. It is written in such a way that all you need to do is work through the exercises and you are almost guaranteed to get a good grade. My respects and thanks to K A Stroud, a genius in the method of teaching.
