Customer Reviews

"Sent wrong book, fast replacement"  February 27, 2015

"I ordered a used copy and received ""Looking at Movies: An Introduction to Film 4th Edition"" instead of the book I had ordered. CS sent me the correct book and instructions on how to return the movies book. Really, though, what type of class sits around watching movies? Maybe I should change majors?"

Fast Shipping And Good Condition Book  March 30, 2011

I Was given an estimated range for when it would come and it came the first day of that range. Very quick. Brand new condition as stated, i recommend ecampus for anyone wants to get his materials and books online because i can assure they did great to me :)

Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics, 7th Edition: 4 out of 5 stars based on 2 user reviews.


Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics maintains its engaging, readable style while presenting a broader range of applications that motivate engineers to learn the core thermodynamics concepts. Two new coauthors help update the material and integrate engaging, new problems.
