Simplifying nuclear physics and engineering Nov. 14 2004
By Devabhaktuni Srikrishna - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is pure fun to read... easy to follow, clearly written, and full of cool graphs. It invokes the engineer, physicist, and statistician in you all at once. If for nothing else but having fun, you should get a copy and read it.

But wish it wasn't so expensive.

A perfect introduction Oct. 4 2010
By cburns90 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering is a perfect introduction to the field. It starts gently enough so that anyone with a basic high school understanding of chemistry and physics can easily pick up the quantitative and qualitative ideas behind the operations of subatomic particles. The graphics are an appropriate companion to the text and the indices and appendices are extremely useful for performing calculations. The only potential downside would regard the end of chapter problems tending towards a "plug and chug" nature.

Dense Text and Few Examples Feb. 11 2013
By Charles - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a senior in Mechanical Engineering and I'm using this book for an elective I thought would be fun. I'm not some guy that is blaming poor test scores on a book, I'm genuinely disappointed by it.
This text is one of the worst I've ever had to deal with. There are very few examples in the book and the solutions for the problems are nowhere to be found online. The lack of good examples can make a simple question take obscene amounts of time.
The book is formatted poorly as well, which makes it difficult to find things when you're flipping back and forth between pages. There are a few pictures and graphs but most pages are just block text which can take quite a bit of time to wade through if you don't already know exactly where to look.

Unfortunately most people buying this book don't have the option to choose something else, however, if you're a professor wanting to change books, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Excellent nuclear kick-off! May 10 2014
By Matheus Santos - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
But why only 4 stars? There is no answer for problems! But this is a "common disease" in nuclear eng. textbooks, in my humble and limited opinion & sample size.

The authors give clear explanations and derivations are good too.

I really suggest it as an nuclear introductory course for anyone, also not nuclear engineering students.

I have tried Lamarsh before, but it is hard to follow. Duderstadt & Hamilton is great too, but it deals "only" with reactors.
Good luck if you are required to use this book ... Dec 17 2014

Junior in Mechanical Engineering. Pulled a B in the class no thanks to this awful text. Subjects in this book are very convoluted. Example problems often have pre made assumptions that are never stated making the problems hard to follow. Good luck if you are required to use this book for your class.
