HASH(0xa4ea4c6c) out of 5 stars Excellent Material Nov. 12 2011
By John Corella - Published on
Format: Paperback
Basic Engineering Mathematics is an excellent book for review or for those looking for a very well organized and step by step instruction in engineering math. The book is very easy to read through and can definitely be used as a supplement resource too. With that said, there is one flaw; The answer key possesses several incorrect answers here and there. I have broken down each problem as far as it could go to verify and I have had several engineers do the incorrect problems only to reach the same answer I reached. While unseemly, it does force you to look closely at every problem to make sure it is solved correctly.

HASH(0xa4ea4cc0) out of 5 stars Error-ridden Aug. 24 2012
By Alex - Published on
Format: Paperback
Another reviewer has given this book 5 of 5 stars, yet still pointed out that the answer key has many wrong answers. That is exactly why I am giving the book 3 of 5 stars.

Considering this is the fifth edition, I am very displeased to see the amount of errors in the answer key for the review exercises. Furthermore, I have contacted the publisher via their website to try to receive the teacher answer key for the revision tests, but have yet to hear back from them. It's a problematic system because I am using the book for self-study.

That being said, it's a decent overview of basic mathematics necessary for preparation for an engineering program.

HASH(0xa4ea5114) out of 5 stars Just plain bad Sept. 25 2012
By Anthony M. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a horrible book to LEARN math. I started with little knowledge before I first began to book and I constantly find myself looking elsewhere to acutally learn the material. This book could better be titled "Engineering Math Problems". That would still make it a terrible book because, as was stated above, the answer key is often jumbled up.

HASH(0xa4eadb10) out of 5 stars Avoid this book! Jan. 12 2013
By Tom W - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is NOT a good book to learn maths with, the explanations of each topic are extremely brief and as another reviewer said, I ended up going elsewhere online to try and properly understand the subject. Many of the answers in the answer key are wrong, I would say at least 20% of them.

This does not help when you have little confidence in maths, as i sat there for hours trying to work out what I was doing wrong, only for my maths tutor to come along and say I am right and the book is wrong!!

If i could give this book minus stars I would, its going straight in the bin!!
