Since their publication nearly 40 years ago,Beer and Johnston's Vector Mechanics for Engineers books have set the standard for presenting statics and dynamics to beginning engineering students. The New Media Versions of these classic books combine the power of cutting-edge software and multimedia with Beer and Johnston's unsurpassed text coverage. The Sixth Edition features Beer and Johnston's famous Sample Problems,over 3,000 homework problems (95% new),and new Solving Problems on Your Own sections which provide students with strategies and tips for problem solving. The use of color in this 4-color text helps students to better distinguish between vectors: red equals acceleration and forces (applied and effective),green equals velocity,and blue equals position. Through the use of free-body diagrams in Statics and effective force diagrams in Dynamics,students are given a more intuitive understanding of key concepts.

The New Media Version is the Sixth Edition packaged with the following state of the art new media ancillaries,including two CD-ROM's packaged with every Vector Mechanics for Engineers text (Statics,Dynamics,and Combined): 1. Working Model® 3D Simulations CD-ROM. This powerful software supplement contains the following:

 Working Model 3D Student Edition Text (a 3D engine/viewer not available with any other Statics and Dynamics text)

 43 Working Model Simulations (also in 3D) based on Sample Problems and Exercises from the books

 43 videos (AVIs) of the simulations and an HTML page

 Working Model Tutorial/User's Guide 2. Student Resources CD-ROM. This cross-platform CD offers students twosoftwarepackages: A. FE Exam Interactive Review for Statics and Dynamics. This review includes 100 fully interactive sample questions from the statics and dynamics portions of the FE exam. Hints for solution are given and correct answers explained.

B. Interactive Statics and Dynamics Tutorial. Always available with the 6th Edition,this tutorial,which expands on key concepts from the texts,has been enhanced and is now available on CD-ROM. For each concept there is a clear,physical elaboration; examples; quizzes for drill and practice; and cross-references to the texts.

There are no changes to the texts' contents and the price remains the same—the real difference is the inclusion of interactive new media tools for your students.
