Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics – Beer & Johnston – 7th Edition


For the past forty years and have been the uncontested leaders in the teaching of undergraduate . Over the years their textbooks have introduced significant theoretical and pedagogical innovations in , , and of materials education.

Now in its seventh edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging related to engineering design.

At the same time, their careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail have made their texts the standard for excellence. The new Seventh Edition of “Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics” continues this tradition.
