This PDE book is definitely a better alternative to an undergrad engineering student than a text book. The author gives you a step by step understanding in simple terms, instead of having your instructor confuse you. It gives good examples that are worked out with the solutions. Overall I thought it was definitely worth the $11 spent. I wish I hadn't bought my class textbook($65), and got this one instead.

This is a marvellous aid for those of us who know a little bit about PDEs, but cannot keep the many kinds disparate solution methods organized. Farlow has written a highly structured reference that shows how to classify and solve many of the most important PDEs that arise in physical science and engineering. This book gives great physical insight, and practical advice. Nevertheless, it is probably not the ideal introductory text in that deep, mathematical detail is avoided. What Farlow has provided is a near essential source for later years when those details have become clouded and are not so relevent.

Overview
Most physical phenomena, whether in the domain of fluid dynamics, electricity, magnetism, mechanics, optics, or heat flow, can be described in general by partial differential equations. Indeed, such equations are crucial to mathematical physics. Although simplifications can be made that reduce these equations to ordinary differential equations, nevertheless the complete description of physical systems resides in the general area of partial differential equations.
