5One of my favorite engineering books!
By Tristan L
This was by far one of the best engineering books I've ever had. I ended up using this book for much of the semester and thought it was well laid out. I only have positive regards for this book as it helped me get an A in my Thermodynamics class. The tables in the back of the book are quite useful and would be great for any mechanical engineer to take note of, if not keep a copy of the table handy for some future classes. The quality of the authors writing compares to that of my favorite engineering book author Hibbeler.

4Some problem answer options....maybe?
By Middle of the road
I have read several comments concerning the absence of problem solutions in reference to this book. It maybe because there are so many options to choose from to solve various problems. I suspect that the cost of extending the book size with answers in the back is not justifiable to keep the price down. A CD would have been nice but they didn't feel this way.

I have a B.S. ME degree and have practice my engineering craft for quite some time. I am preparing for Grad-school and further to a Doctorate. An idea I am working with is an App, FX Math solver and FX Calculus solver for iPad. This solver is wonderful. There are others that I use as an adjunc but the FX solvers can shoe either the answer or the step by step solution if you formulate the problem correctly. There are some other good ones so there should not be

In conclusion, I recommend using a math solver for problems in the book that will calculate and plot. There are a number of them out there.

5I found the explanations pretty easy to understand and the examples helpful
By Marc Paras
Used it for a class at school last winter. I found the explanations pretty easy to understand and the examples helpful. For the most part the writing style isn't incredibly exciting or anything, but I don't require that from my textbooks. Sometimes I still reference it for other classes or personal projects when I need some sort of refresher.
