Customer Reviews

I couldn't find a cheaper used copy anywhere  December 7, 2014

I used a few comparison sites and ended up here simply because they have the cheapest price on this book.

Numerical Methods for Engineers: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


The seventh edition of Chapra and Canale's Numerical Methods for Engineers retains the instructional techniques that have made the text so successful. Chapra and Canale's unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called “Motivation,“ “Mathematical Background,” and “Orientation” Each part closes with an “Epilogue” containing “Trade-Offs,” “Important Relationships and Formulas,” and “Advanced Methods and Additional References.” Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Helpful separate Appendices. “Getting Started with MATLAB” and “Getting Started with Mathcad” which make excellent references.

Numerous new or revised problems are drawn from actual engineering practice. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in these exercises, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span all areas of engineering giving students a broad exposure to various fields in engineering.

Users will find use of files for many popular software packages, specifically MATLAB®, Excel® with VBA, and Mathcad®. There is also material on developing MATLAB® m-files and VBA macros.
