Engineering Mechanics features “Photorealistic” figures and over 400 key figures have been rendered in often 3D photo quality detail to appeal to visual learners. For professionals in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics careers.
Textbooks are all pretty much the same, written a little above the level of the layman or novice to the subject. Paired with a good instructor the book is informative and the exercises productive. Fundamental problems come with partial solution walkthroughs and all final answers are in the back. Good for learning methods and catching you negative signs and simple errors. Like all engineering textbooks the focus is on the methods not the final answer.
