Abstract:

"This classic text encompasses the most important aspects of plane and spherical trigonometry in a question-and-answer format. Its 913 specially selected questions appear with detailed answers that help readers refresh their trigonometry skills or clear up difficulties in particular areas. Questions and answers in the first part discuss plane trigonometry, proceeding to examinations of special problems in navigation, surveying, elasticity, architecture, and various fields of engineering. The final section explores spherical trigonometry and the solution of spherical triangles, with applications to terrestrial and astronomical problems. Readers can test their progress with 1,738 problems, many of which feature solutions." -- publisher website (Sept. 2006).
