Timely, accurate, and cheap

Saved lots of money compared to the book store price, got the book in time for class, and the book was in great condition. Free shipping too.

Great book for relearning Fluid Mechanics

I recently had the need to go back and relearn fluid mechanics five years after originally taking the course. I found this book to be amazingly helpful. The thing it does better than just about any book I have seen before is example problems. They are numerous, and make sense. Also, many higher up text books neglect putting answers to significant numbers of problems in the back of the book. Since the best way to learn a subject is working problems, this book really allows you to pick up the subject on your own.

A good introduction to fluid mechanics

I am only half way through the book so far, however I have noticed from other reviews that many students do not like this book. In my opinion, I find the book to be very enjoyable to both read and study from. It provides concise derivations for Reynolds Transport Theorem, Bernoulli's Equation, Navier-Stokes Equations and others that are necessary to understand fluid mechanics. The example problems are useful and well laid out. What some students may not like is that the book tends to take a more long winded approach to solving certain problems. However that approach is the proper one when solving more complex fluid mechanic problems.

I still refer to it 5 years later....

I used this book as an undergrad and found the many examples very helpful in doing the homework problems. I still refer to this textbook quite often as an aeronautical engineer. If you've had a few math courses it isn't too challenging. It is a very good explanation of the basics!

A Great Textbook, A Great Reference Book

This is a fabulous textbook that I refer to frequently in my work. It presents a very difficult subject in a logical way and lays a solid foundation for graduate study. I think some students have trouble following the discussion because they don't have a good grasp of the math needed (Calculus and DiffEqs). I like the fact that this book is not cluttered with information you can find in a Math book. It makes it a good reference book.
