Editorial Reviews

Review
Praise for the seventh edition: 'This is an excellent self-learning text. In a matter of hours the reader can go from almost no knowledge of a topic to a reasonable level of competence. I have seen no other text that gives the reader a basic knowledge in a topic so quickly, efficiently and painlessly.' - Pete Peterson, John Tyler Community College, Virginia, USA 'This is the most comprehensive self-help maths text available that is suitable for access level and first year undergraduate science and engineering students.' - Hazel Shute, University of Plymouth, UK 'This book offers a thorough grounding in mathematics and is a must for any student serious about studying engineering at a higher level.' - --Robert Jenkins, Learning Enhancement Team, University of East Anglia, UK

Review
Praise for previous editions and the Stroud approach: 'Excellent textbook. Very user-friendly for students with worked examples for explanation and consolidation of theory.' – John W. Glenn, Belfast Institute of Further and Higher Education, UK

'The book is excellent. The presentation of each topic is superb. The various exercises and the [Online] Personal Tutor should greatly assist students in understanding the various mathematical concepts in the book.'– Gerard Driscoll, Cork Institute of Technology, Republic of Ireland

'The Bible. What more can I say?.' – John Greville, Swansea Institute of Higher Education, UK

'The best maths book I have ever read.' - Mohammed Elsari, North East Wales Institute, UK

From the Back Cover
Engineering Mathematics is the best-selling introductory mathematics text for students on science and engineering degree and pre-degree courses. Sales of previous editions stand at more than half a million copies. It is suitable for classroom use and self-study.

Its unique programmed approach takes students through the mathematics they need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples and exercises. The book is divided into two sections with the Foundation section starting at Level 0 of the IEng syllabus and the main section extending over all elements of a first year undergraduate course and into many second year courses. The book therefore suits a full range of abilities and levels of access.
 
The Online Personal Tutor guides students through exercises in the same step-by-step fashion as the book, with hundreds of full workings to questions.

5Great Book for Review and Reference
By A. J. Ross
This is a great book for review and reference. If you are looking for proofs and theorems, then this is not the book for you. If you are looking to review engineering mathematics in an easily understandable format, then this is the book for you.

The book is organized into programmes or mini chapters. Each programme covers a specific topic. The author provides a brief explanation of the concept involved and then worked examples. You then have the opportunity to work a problem, and then a detailed solution is provided right away.

The writing is clear and concise. Each programme is a condensed yet powerful presentation of the basic concepts. The book covers a broad range of topics, but there are some advanced topics that are not included.

In summary, I highly recommend this book.

5Great for brushing up on topics you may have forgotten
By calvinnme
This book is excellent at what it does - provide a broad overview of most of the mathematics that engineers should know by the time they receive their bachelor's degree. This book starts with the idea of numbers and number systems and goes through differential equations and probability. However, most freshmen engineering students start out taking calculus, and this subject is not reached until after page 300. Up to that point, from an engineering student's viewpoint, you are really studying remedial math.

However, you couldn't ask for a clearer presentation. The author holds your hand and explains and illustrates absolutely everything he presents. Just don't get the idea that by going through this book you have learned everything an engineering student should know about trigonometry, calculus, etc. The big ideas are here, but you'll need other sources and more background to be an expert. Clearly written and practical math books are hard to come by, so I would definitely recommend it as a reference that should be on every engineer's bookshelf.

5Best Math book I have ever purchased
By Eric Brown
Best Math book I have ever purchased. The pedagogical style is simply perfect. I have no idea why more books aren't written like this. Easy to follow, sequential, and containing ample worked solutions for every step. Absolutely fantastic.
