Product Description

From the Inside Flap

ESource enables you to put your stamp on your book just as you do your course. It lets you:

  • Control: You choose exactly what chapter or sections are in your book and in what order they appear. Of course, you can choose the entire book if you'd like and stay with the authors' original order.
  • Optimize: Get the most from your book and your course. ESource lets you produce the optimal text for your students needs.
  • Customize: You can add your own material anywhere in your text's presentation, and your final product will arrive at your bookstore as a professionally formatted text. Of course, all titles in this series are available as stand-alone texts, or as bundles of two or more books sold at a discount. Contact your PH sales rep for discount information.

Professors who choose to bundle two or more texts from the ESource series for their class, or use an ESource custom book will be providing their students with complete access to the library of ESource content. All bundles and custom books will come with a student password that gives web ESource ACCESS to all information on the site. This passcode is free and is valid for one year after initial logon. We've designed ESource ACCESS to provide students a flexible, searchable, on-line resource. Professors may also choose to deliver custom ESource content via the web only using ESource ACCESS passcodes. Contact your PH sales rep for more information.

ESource Content

All the content in ESource was written by educators specifically for freshman/first-year students. Authors tried to strike a balanced level of presentation, an approach that was neither formulaic nor trivial, and one that did not focus too heavily on advanced topics that most introductory students do not encounter until later classes. Because many professors do not have extensive time to cover these topics in the classroom, authors prepared each text with the idea that many students would use it for self-instruction and independent study Students should be able to use this content to learn the software tool or subject on their own.

While authors had the freedom to write texts in a style appropriate to their particular subject, all followed certain guidelines created to promote a consistency that makes students comfortable. Namely, every chapter opens with a clear set of Objectives, includes Practice Boxes throughout the chapter, and ends with a number of Problems, and a list of Key Terms. Applications Boxes are spread throughout the book with the intent of giving students a real-world perspective of engineering. Success Boxes provide the student with advice about college study skills, and help students avoid the common pitfalls of first-year students. In addition, this series contains an entire book titled Engineering Success by Peter Schiavone of the University of Alberta intended to expose students quickly to what it takes to be an engineering student.

Creating Your Book

Using ESource is simple. You preview the content either on-line or through examination copies of the books you can request on-line, from your PH sales rep, or by calling 1-800-526-0485. Create an on-line outline of the content you want, in the order you want, using ESource's simple interface. Either type or cut and paste your own material and insert it into the text flow. You can preview the overall organization of the text you've created at anytime (please note, since this preview is immediate, it comes unformatted.), then press another button and receive an order number for your own custom book. If you are not ready to order, do nothing—ESource will save your work. You can come back at any time and change, re-arrange, or add more material to your creation. Once you're finished and you have an ISBN, give it to your bookstore and your book will arrive on their shelves four to six weeks after they order. Your custom desk copies with their instructor supplements will arrive at your address at the same time.You can either go through the on-line walkthrough of how to create a book, or experiment yourself.


Adopters of ESource receive an instructor's CD that contains professor and student code from the books in the series, as well as other instruction aides provided by authors. The website also holds approximately 350 PowerPoint transparencies created by Jack Leifer of University of Kentucky-Paducah available to download. Professors can either follow these transparencies as pre-prepared lectures or use them as the basis for their own custom presentations.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Excel Stuff . . . Yea! June 26 2011
By Anna Barendt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the VBA books that were recommended to me by my Computer Science professor. I will be starting an internship in the fall and need to know VBA and VBS to write some of the code. This is a great book . . . not that I am all that good with engineering formulas, but some of the tips and tricks it gives for writing code and creating macros is very helpful. My daughter, an Environmental Engineering student, is also looking through the book and picking up tips on how to set up her spreadsheets more efficiently and how to create unique math macros. Very good book.

Needed this book for my intro to engineering and it was rather useful but this book has some typos in some of its exercises but besides that, decent book to use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average textbook Dec 5 2008
By Jennifer R. Creamer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this for a beginning mechanical engineering class. It is written by a professor at my school. The book was adequate, although my school had the brilliance to upgrade all the computers to Excel 2007 and not get a different book. It is not very useful with 2007, but was fine with Open Office Calc for everything but curve fits and was great with Excel 2000-2003. It's generally a pretty good way to learn how to use excel better if you're familiar with the basics. (Although it leaves out a few things-it never covers 3-D plots, which Excel is capable of)

4.0 out of 5 stars Used only for matlab experience not used with excel July 30 2010
By Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
In our class we used it only for Matlab, I am not using any part of the Excel so I can not comment about that, but if you are wanting to learn Matlab quickly, and bluntly about how to program using matrix plots then I would recommend this book. It only goes into image processing at the end but it also has loops (if, while, and for). The homework at the end is pretty straight forward for each chapter making you think a little but nothing like Electromagnetics.
