HASH(0x9b3b33b4) out of 5 stars OK at best... Nov. 8 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My course in aircraft structures uses this as its text, and honestly I spend more time using other books in the library than this one. It covers all the appropriate subjects and the methods are correct, but the descriptions are not detailed enough to fully understand the process from the text alone. Also, several of the examples contain errors; this really makes life difficult for the student! I don't know if the full version (this is "excerpted" from another of Megson's books) has been corrected in later editions.

HASH(0x9b3b9300) out of 5 stars Hard to read Oct. 4 2011

I am currently taking an aircraft structural analysis course with this as a required text. At about halfway through the semester, I can say I've found more use of my mechanics of materials text than this book. It is very heavy with theory, and sometimes the theory is presented as a concept without any mathematical clarification. Our instructor has just gotten to the unit load and the flexibility method of analysis, and I have almost completely given up on understanding any of this from Megson's book. In all fairness, this book is full of different analysis methods, and I think the sparseness of information in some of these methods reflects the likelihood of actually using those methods in practice. Lots of problems worked out.(with tons of skipped steps!) Ultimately be prepared to read the text, look at the example problems that follow, and ask "why?,why? why?".
