A long-standing, best-selling, comprehensive textbook covering all the mathematics required on upper level engineering mathematics undergraduate courses. 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 text demands that students engage with it by asking them to complete steps that they should be able to manage from previous examples or knowledge they have acquired, while carefully introducing new steps. By working with the authors through the examples, students become proficient as they go. By the time they come to trying examples on their own, confidence is high.

This textbook is ideal for undergraduates on upper level courses in all Engineering disciplines and Science.

Review quote

'[E]ntirely fit for purpose.' - Times Higher Education Supplement 'Stroud is by far and away the best text book for engineering maths. It is excellent for students to use on their own to reinforce what they have seen in class.' - Esther Norton, Anglia Ruskin University, UK 'This is quite simply the BEST text in the area' - Justin Whitty, University of Central Lancashire, UK 'I recommend this book for self study by students due to the "step by step" approach.' - Alan Crocker, University of the West of England, UK Current reviews of the previous edition from 'This book is essential for undergraduates studying an engineering degree course. Stroud's books fill a vast deficit found in most higher level maths text books, i.e. his books fill in procedural gaps other text books assume will be filled in while attending lectures. Stroud does not 'assume', he teaches...' 'This book is extremely useful...[It] has well written and easy to follow chapters on many different areas. To back this up it has useful examples for each section building up from simple cases to more complex exam style questions. This book really is excellent. If you get one maths book for engineering, get this one.' 'To anyone who is about to undertake, or is indeed in the middle of any engineering degree, this book is a must. The layout and style are cleverly designed to keep you working through the chapters. Don't do engineering without a copy.'
