Review quote

! This 31st edition (published in 2003) is a big improvement over my 27th edition, in selection of material, in organization, and in appearance. The index is very thorough, and I was able to find the answers to my test questions almost immediately through the index. ! this book has an edge over the web in a couple of areas. One is statistics: unlike math, statistics does not a large presence on the web, and it's hard to find answers to statistical methods questions there. The present book has 100 pages of useful statistical methods. The other area is for browsing for a useful result. When working on a math problem, it's often valuable to look through handbooks for results or formulas that resemble the result you need and that you may be able to adapt to your needs. It's very hard to do a web search for this purpose. --Allen Stenger, MAA Reviews, May 2010 The 31st edition of the CRC Standard Mathematical Tables and Formulae is, without a doubt, the new and improved bible of mathematics. It is an outstanding reference book, containing more than 30 new sections, covering more than 3,000 items, and including tables, properties, etc. The index has been revamped to make it faster and easier to find results. Author Daniel Zwillinger has done an excellent job keeping the same successful format that has characterized earlier editions of the handbook. It won't teach you math, but if you use math for any project, you will find what you need to know here. ! Mathematicians will find this handbook indispensable--an absolute must-have desk reference. The ready access of tables that may be needed in mathematical endeavors will make life much easier for engineers, scientists, mathematicians, or even for those who are in the process of studying these and related subjects. --John Vacca, former computer security official for NASA's space station program (Freedom), The Barnes & Noble Review An excellent reference resource for all readership levels, this guide offers easy navigation through a browseable table of contents and an extensive index. It follows a natural progression for those studying the subject. It is logical, useful, and affordable. Summing up: Highly Recommended. --CHOICE, September 2003show more
