Engineering Mechanics: Statics & Dynamics (13th Edition) Reviews
Life was easier when stuff didn't move! But if stuff starts moving, start here. I love that they have worked out answers for half the problems in the back of book. I found the fundamental problems to be an adequate study guide for the tests. If you have a mean professor you better work um all though. The fundamental problems only cover what they say they do; the fundamentals.
Of all my engineering books, the Hibbeler series books are the best looking books, they have excellent color pictures and the layout/organization and fluidity of the text is excellent. However, no one buys books for how they look, this book does a good job of providing derivations and explanations of equations; but, the problem sets at the end of each section are often much more difficult than the examples. The solution manual is readily available online via file hosting sites or torrents but the solutions are usually bare bones and the method of solution is usually harder than that taught by a professor.
This text is very useful in developing mastery of Engineering Dynamics. It is filled with many everyday hands-on examples, simplified and explained in a concise, detailed manner to glean understanding. The text takes basic physical concepts and builds upon them to an extension of practical knowledge. Writings also contain hints and tips to avoid common problem-solving pitfalls. I've also used the Hibbeler text for Statics, 12th ed. and have been exceptionally pleased with its ease of learning.
This book was essential to understanding Statics and has many good examples. There are a plethora of practice problems that condition you for an exam. I took this course as an independent study and struggled at first (know your physics), but through perseverance and practice I gained a good understanding of the material and completed the course with a B.
You have to read the fine print where it states : Rental may or may not come with acces codes.
The exercises are very well explained and the book follows a logical order in the chapters explained. The exercises and samples in metric values are very helpful for European students and professors.
Great book. The examples do a very good job at explaining the problems. The more difficult problems aren't explained that well though, but that's the purpose in a hard problem, to make you think. It has a great range of difficulty and builds your knowledge up to the tough ones. The fundamental problems helped a lot, especially with the steps in the back. I purchased the statics and dynamics in one, and at the end of statics I could see the book wearing some, but I used it a lot. I haven't finished dynamics yet so I will see how it holds up.
