Higher Engineering Mathematics has helped thousands of students to succeed in their exams by developing problem-solving skills, It is supported by over 600 practical engineering examples and applications which relate theory to practice. The extensive and thorough topic coverage makes this a solid text for undergraduate and upper-level vocational courses. Its companion website provides resources for both students and lecturers, including lists of essential formulae, ands full solutions to all 2,000 further questions contained in the 277 practice exercises; and illustrations and answers to revision tests for adopting course instructors.
