Very Difficult Read for a College Sophmore
One of the things that a textbook is supposed to do is introduce material in a consistent and plainly obvious way, so that someone who has never seen the material can follow and at least get SOME idea of what's happening. It should then be followed up by the Professor in his lectures that take you to the next level of understanding. Unfortunately, this book does not do that.Was this review helpful?

The author did not direct his writing to the average student looking to learn techniques in solving differential equations. It is over-the-top complicated, seemingly directed toward individuals with master's degrees rather than the student struggling to learn. Perhaps appreciated among his peers, but not amongst us sophmore engineering students.
While it does cover a variety to problem solving technique, there is no way a student can read and comprehend them. Sadly, even our Professor expressed dismay in the author's lack of reverance for those of us less knowledgeable.
