Engineering Mathematics is the best-selling introductory mathematics text for students on science and engineering degree and pre-degree courses. Sales of previous editions stand at more than half a million copies. It is suitable for classroom use and self-study. Its unique programmed approach takes students through the mathematics they need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples and exercises. The book is divided into two sections with the Foundation section starting at Level 0 of the IEng syllabus and the main section extending over all elements of a first year undergraduate course and into many second year courses. The book therefore suits a full range of abilities and levels of access. The Online Personal Tutor guides students through exercises in the same step-by-step fashion as the book, with hundreds of full workings to questions.

Praise for the seventh edition: 'This is an excellent self-learning text. In a matter of hours the reader can go from almost no knowledge of a topic to a reasonable level of competence. I have seen no other text that gives the reader a basic knowledge in a topic so quickly, efficiently and painlessly.' - Pete Peterson, John Tyler Community College, Virginia, USA 'This is the most comprehensive self-help maths text available that is suitable for access level and first year undergraduate science and engineering students.' - Hazel Shute, University of Plymouth, UK 'This book offers a thorough grounding in mathematics and is a must for any student serious about studying engineering at a higher level.' - Robert Jenkins, Learning Enhancement Team, University of East Anglia, UK
