  1. Jordan and Smith: Mathematical Techniques: An Introduction for the Engineering, Physical, and Mathematical Sciences. Paperback – 13 Mar 2008


Mathematical concepts and theories underpin much of the physical sciences and engineering. Yet maths is a subject that many students find challenging, and even intimidating – despite it being so central to their field of study.

Mathematical Techniques provides a complete course in mathematics, covering all the essential topics with which a physical sciences or engineering student should be familiar.

By breaking the subject into small, modular chapters, the book introduces and builds on concepts in a progressive, carefully-layered way – always with an emphasis on how to use the power of maths to best effect, rather than on theoretical proofs of the maths presented.

With a huge array of end of chapter problems, and new self-check questions, the fourth edition of Mathematical Techniques provides extensive opportunities for students to build their confidence in the best way possible: by using the maths for themselves.

2. Stroud and Booth: Engineering Mathematics. Paperback – 22 Mar 2013


Engineering Mathematics is the best-selling introductory mathematics text for students on science and engineering degree and pre-degree courses. Sales of previous editions stand at more than half a million copies. It is suitable for classroom use and self-study.

Its unique programmed approach takes students through the mathematics they need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples and exercises. The book is divided into two sections with the Foundation section starting at Level 0 of the IEng syllabus and the main section extending over all elements of a first year undergraduate course and into many second year courses. The book therefore suits a full range of abilities and levels of access.

The Online Personal Tutor guides students through exercises in the same step-by-step fashion as the book, with hundreds of full workings to questions.

(Note that the first half of this book is largely identical to the same authors book: Foundation Mathematics Paperback – 21 Apr 2009, so there is no reason to buy both).
