Very complete, and concise July 30, 2011
This textbook covers a good amount of material in a very concise and easy to understand way. I have found it very valuable even after the class which used it, has ended. Explanations of the derived principles are clear and it is easy to build upon them to solve more complex problems. The textbook was in very good condition and delivered so fast. It was awesome.
