Overview

Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving is written to motivate engineering students during their first year.

A complete introduction to the engineering field, this text will help students develop the skills to solving open-ended problems in SI and customary units while presenting solutions in a logical manner. Eide introduces students to subject areas that are common to engineering disciplines that require the application of fundamental engineering concepts.

Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving remains the most comprehensive text for an introductory engineering course. The book provides students a realistic opportunity to learn to apply engineering principles to the solution of engineering problems, and the author's approach keeps students on task toward an engineering career by showing how the materials applies to the student's school, life, and career.

While not every course will cover all the topics in this text, McGraw-Hill is proud to offer Create, which will allow you to select the material you need from this text and many others in our B.E.S.T. series for freshman engineering so you can creat materials exactly suited to your course. For more information, please go to the Create website or contact your sales representative.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text for first-year engineering students, emphasizing problem solving and applications, with enough material for a semester or quarter course or a one-year sequence. Part I describes the profession and details procedures for approaching engineering problems, and Part II covers estimations, dimensions, units (both customary and SI), and statistics. Part III prepares students for working with computer solutions, and Part IV introduces quality concepts. Part V consists of five independent chapters on mechanics, material balance, electrical theory, energy, and engineering economy. Part VI details a ten-step design process. Contains chapter key terms and concepts, worked examples, and problems varying in difficulty, with selected answers, plus two-color diagrams and b&w photos. Mathematical appendices offer background in algebra, trigonometry, graphics, and geometric formulations. Some familiarity with pre-calculus is assumed. This third edition contains more computer-oriented problems. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Awful.

    This book is aggravating. It explains concepts as if you already know them. The chapter doesn't cover everything that is required to do the homework. The solutions for homework in the back just show answers, and only for selected problems. Step by step detail is NEVER done in this book. If you can understand this book without a LOT of effort, you don't need a book on engineering to begin with. Bottom line, in almost 4 years of college, this is the worst textbook I have ever owned.
