This book is why engineers hate math. I presume Kreyszig is the kind of man who responds to his children's questions with, "Because I'm the adult and I said so!" The exercises could have been generated by a monkey playing Mad Libs with numerals and notation; they reduce math to cold calculation and avoid any attempt at leading the student to discovery. There is no joy in this book.

Regardless of what book your professor chooses, I suggest using Mary Boas'

But I would say if you have weak basic concepts then go for B.S Grewal and Michael Greenberg before coming on to this books as this book do not cover all the basic concepts and contains very less solved pr ...more

engineering students who don't love abstract math

lots of details and examples. color graphics.

In differential equations, the book was too advanced for my course, and reading it wasn't easy. This may be due to the fact that engineers do not get enough exposure to mathematics to enable the more theoretical parts of this book readable without an instructor.

The book ...more
