It helps but, ...

I purchased this solution's manual to assist me with Beer & Johnston's Vector Mechanics for Engineers. Although the solutions they provide therein are clear and complete, you should not expect to find a solution to a specific problem bedeviling you. I spent a great deal of time looking for a similar solved problem from which I could harvest the technique and apply to my situation but, 70% of the time I was unsuccessful. In the absence of a solutions manual from the publisher and limited professor office hours, this may be your only recourse. Good Luck!

do the problems

Provided you already know the material then this book is great as a cram revision for an exam. The value is strictly in the 800 problems with answers. The topics span elementary statics. Things that would be covered in a first undergraduate course on the subject. Like free body diagrams, torque, centroids and moments of area, friction, moments of inertia etc. The text in each chapter is really rudimentary and not that conducive to understanding if that is your first encounter with the subject. Rather, you should force yourself to tackle as many problems as possible. If this actually appeals to you, then it also suggests you have both aptitude and motivation for this field.


I will only say this...I would not sell my 2 volumes for a thousand dollars. I hope that these books are someday back in print as they are the ULTIMATE guides to learning, understanding and mastering this material. A MUST HAVE!.

A good book

This book has it right. A very good sample of the kinds of problems seen in a statics course. All the problems are worked out with written solutions. I found a copy at a local library. If this book was in print I would buy it.
