Book Description

Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam, Kraige, and Bolton’s Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics 8th Edition has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. Now in its eighth edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. In addition to new homework problems, the text includes a number of helpful sample problems. To help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams- one of the most important skills needed to solve mechanics problems.

5Excellent series. Great for classroom or as a reference.
By John
Excellent textbook. I also have their Engineering Mechanics: Statics and I love the way they have this series set up. Passages are relatively easy to read and have a few good sample problems for each section.

I also love that all the answers to every problem are included. That way when you finish a problem you can have immediate feedback to whether you did the problem correctly or need to review your work for errors. Much better method for learning then waiting over a week to get homework back and then learning you made a mistake and no longer have the problem fresh in your mind.

Because of the above fact I recommend this series for use in the classroom if any teaching faculty are reading. And let me clarify. It has the answers, not a solution so if students are just making up work to match the answers you will be able to tell. Having the answer only helps aid the learning not help them cheat on their homework

If you are buying a textbook just as a reference this is good as well because once again you can see if you practice a problem whether or not you made a mistake and can learn from it before applying it to your work.

2No problem explanations
By Amazon Customer
This book appears to have decent problems to solve + a little bit of fore-way into the doing the problems with text but there are no solutions to the problems at the back of the book, you have to rely on just answers and you have no way to understand problems you can't figure out. I couldn't even find a solution manual as a separate book, though there definitely should be the answers included online somewhere or inside the main book with purchase anyway.

3Cover had scuffs as if it had been tossed around ...

Cover had scuffs as if it had been tossed around. Other than that it is a brand new, unopened book.
