As an introduction, I am an undergraduate Engineering student, and used this text in a level Statics of Solids course. The authors evidently attempted to innovate statics texts by relying on examples and exercises to comprise a bulk of the learning process.
However, it seems that they took this theme a bit to far. There is no effective narrative in the text, and numerous vital details are omitted, with students left to their own devices to glean them from the examples.
The example solutions skip steps haphazardly and are difficult for even high-achieving students to follow. Worse yet, several standard formulae, which are crucial for a bulk of the exercises, are relegated to an appendix which is rarely mentioned.
The authors note that some basic calculus is required for the course, which is true. However, their handling of it is one of the text’s many low points. Descriptions of formulae and their purpose are lacking at best, and variables are inconsistent even within the same chapter. Overall, using this text was not a pleasant experience, and I would not recommend it to anybody, unless they were looking for a book of exercises.
Even in that category, there are far better and less costly options on the market. The bundled “Study Guide” authored by Mr. Schiavone, was of little utility.
My instructor suggested that we purchase it, and it did provide a serviceable review of basic concepts. It extended review of free body diagrams was limited to the most basic of items and conventions, but could be useful in a course where the instructor neglects this area.
Otherwise, the chapter reviews offered minimal, if any, problem-solving support, and thus the use of this supplement as a study guide was minimal.
I guess for a student who understood the methods but not representation it could be helpful. Overall, I would not recommend the supplement either.
One person found this helpful. This book is not very easy to follow. The Hibbeler book is much better. Every time I see this book I cry because I hate the class and also if I drop engineering it will be because of the class where I need this book but otherwise good book.
I bought this book because it’s the book used in the Physics: Statics class I had taken. At my school, the textbooks are rentals. I decided I like the book enough that I wanted to keep it so I would have it for reference in the future. Those who give engineerinv reviews of this book seem to be the types who don’t want to understand the material, but rather just run through the motions.
My reasoning for this: The smaller number of examples requires you statcis reason your way through some of the homework problems rather than just using the worked out math from the examples. Being a physics major, this is completely fine with me.
If you don’t want to actually understand the physics, but rather want to “just get through it,” you may wish to choose a different book. One of the best books available on this subject in my opinion. I learned better from this book than I did from any of my teachers. Great examples, reasonable problems. Full color and great explanations of the concepts. And with the help of the available solutions manual, you might not even need to take the course to learn it.
This book has been a resource for my dynamics class with detailed explanations of problems and equations. This was a pretty mmechanics textbook, I was required to get it for one of my classes but it was very informational.
