Textbooks are all pretty much the same, written a little above the level of the layman or novice to the subject. Paired with a good instructor the book is informative and the exercises productive. Fundamental problems come with partial solution walkthroughs and all final answers are in the back. Good for learning methods and catching you negative signs and simple errors. Like all engineering textbooks the focus is on the methods not the final answer.
