Summary:
"This book covers both statics and dynamics together with a section on background mathematics, providing the student with everything needed to complete typical first year undergraduate courses in these areas. Students often find statics and dynamics difficult subjects, since the skills needed to visualize problems and handle the mathematics can be tricky to master. Roberts' friendly approach makes life easier for  Read more...

   schema:reviewBody ""This book covers both statics and dynamics together with a section on background mathematics, providing the student with everything needed to complete typical first year undergraduate courses in these areas. Students often find statics and dynamics difficult subjects, since the skills needed to visualize problems and handle the mathematics can be tricky to master. Roberts' friendly approach makes life easier for both student and tutor, tackling concepts from first principles with many examples, exercises and helpful diagrams. The inclusion of a revision section on introductory mathematics is a huge bonus, allowing students to catch up on the prerequisite mathematics needed to work through both courses."--Jacket." ;
