Build your Fluid Mechanics Muscles and Get Better Grade !!!, September 27, 2001

Build your Fluid Mechanics Muscles and Get Better Grade with this Book!!
I am one of the students who are hungry for various solved problems collected and written by experts in any subject of my interest. This book is really a very powerful tool in your hand. I used this book when I took Engineering Fluid Mechanics course (ME 311) in my university KFUPM, Saudi Arabia. I am sure as God made a little green apple that the students will find this book beneficial from several sides.
Speaking for myself, it helped me in solving some of my homework problems. Sometimes, you do not find the vary problem you are looking for, but you will find a problem that shares the same concept that your homework problem does. That is, regardless of the book you are using for this course, this very powerful book will be fine.
Secondly, I found that some of the questions given in this book are exactly same as the questions given in my major exams or sometime they share the same concepts. This, certainly, will guarantee that you will collect a large amount of scores out of your total score. Needless to say, you will get an excellent grade in this curse, Lord willing. However, this all depends on you.
I think that you should not solve a lot of problems given in this book if and only if you do not face any problems in understanding the major and minor concepts in this course as this book has repeated solved problems sharing the same concepts. Indeed, this book has got thousands of problems and if you spend a lot of time in solving them without paying attention to your other courses you will really be in deep water. You may get a good grade in this course; on the other hand, your grade in other courses will be too bad. Thus, I recommend you to concentrate on the questions that are new to you and on the ones that are similar (in concepts) to the ones that your instructor focuses on in the class and practice some of the Mice Mouse (=easy) problems and ignore their repeated paraphrased ones.
On the Other hand, if you have difficulties in understanding the concepts of this course in your class, then do not worry at all because this wonderful book has a lot of problems with different level of difficulties, form the simplest idea in this course to the most difficult one. You will even find solved problems related to simplest equations formulas. More importantly, you may find problems having new concepts that are not provided by the textbook you are using for this course. Thus, all what you have to do is to burn the mid night oil (= keep practicing) and you will, hopefully, overcome any difficulties and get a good grade.
Moreover, if you are aeronautical or aerospace engineer, you will appreciate this book very much in your aerodynamic courses as it has solved problems about dynamic drag and lift plus fundamentals fluid flow. So, you will hit two birds with one stone if you buy this book. Additionally, this book has several FORTRAN Programs that might be helpful in your terms projects.
Unhappily, this book does not explain concepts, it just gives you solved problems. If the authors had explained the concepts of each chapter properly before solving the problems, then I would rate this book at 5 starts.
To sum up, it is really worth to buy it and Good Luck.
nice exercise book !, October 10, 1999

This book really helps me in doing my terribly hard fluid mechanics homework. Also, the problems given are appropriate in preparing for exam. Get this book if you found hard time learning fluid .
This book is great for biginers, July 19, 1999

I loved that book.it helped me a lot in studying for my course. But this book was not too much help for advance fluid mechanics sections.it lacks of theory and explanation of the problem.Ex assuming things that i dont know from where he got them.no coord system to CV..
Very helpful for doing homework., May 24, 1999

I found this book had a lot of the homework from Shames book. Since I was using this book that was perfect.
Great source of problems, not much of a study guide., January 13, 1999

This book doesn't help you learn fluids, but does have tons of problems. Better off sticking with the outlines if you are struggling in a fluids class.
