Book Description

This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition.

 Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis, 6th edition teaches engineers to properly and methodically evaluate their work on an economic basis, and to convey it effectively to those who have the power to say "yea" or "nay." The 6th edition is updated and expanded to be comprehensive and flexible - it includes all standard topics plus stronger coverage of more advanced analysis techniques than other books, with the most thorough integration and guidance for spreadsheet use. The text provides a unified treatment of economic analysis principles and techniques from a cash flow perspective, a proven classroom approach that is very successful in practice. Chapter-opening stories about well-known companies, engineering and personal finance examples throughout the text, and external web resources help motivate students. FE-Like problems at the end of each chapter give students practice with the kinds of problems they'll encounter on the FE exam. The 6th edition provides students and instructors the latest tax information, and up-to-date company and industry information in the chapter opening stories, reflecting changes resulting from the recent tumult in the economy, so that students can work with the most current and relevant information.

2Horrible Book
By E. Watson
Horrible book. Doesn't actually explain concepts, just tells you how to solve them in excel, and even then its skips over a lot of formulas. Typos everywhere! Typos in the answers in the back. Typos in the formulas. Typos in their work. Makes it hard to follow. Also book is not laid out well. Things you need to understand in ch 2 aren't explained until ch 4. Only bought it because I needed it for a class. None of us like it.

This book does a great job simplifying economics but the questions are a bit ambiguous. Also, there are still quite a few errors that I uncovered in the text and answer key.
