Book Description

Callister and Rethwisch's Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering 4th Edition continues to take the integrated approach to the organization of topics. That is, one specific structure, characteristic, or property type at a time is discussed for all three basic material types: metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials. This order of presentation allows for the early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer's role in choosing materials based upon their characteristics. Also discussed are new, cutting-edge materials. Using clear, concise terminology that is familiar to students, Fundamentals presents material at an appropriate level for both student comprehension and instructors who may not have a materials background.

1One of THE WORST textbooks I have ever used.
By J. Purnell
One of THE WORST textbooks I have ever used. The chapter problems are poorly written. The "selected" answers provide no help and a few of them are wrong. The reading is dry and boring. The author keeps switching formula length from meters to feet (or mm to inches), so you never know what your result will be. And to top if off, the INDEX IS WRONG; the page numbers in the index are incorrect. The website link to "selected answers" is wrong too.

Good luck trying to use this book!

4It is what it is and it does what it is supposed to do
By T. Redding
I don't have much to compare it to as a materials book. However, it seems to explain concepts fundamental to materials science in an understandable format.

4This is one of the better text books I've had
By Ryan31
This is one of the better text books I've had. It's easy to follow and helped a lot with the course considering my professor didn't know how to answer questions.
