Review from previous edition This textbook offers an accessible and comprehensive grounding in many of the mathematical techniques required in the early stages of an engineering or science degree and also for the routine methods needed by first and second year mathematics students. - Engineering Designer March/April 2003
There are also significant changes in content in the opening chapter, where the foundation material has been expanded usefully. The authors do not attempt to dodge theoretical hurdles. They are careful to explain many of the less intuitive properties of functions and to highlight generalisations without becoming over abstract. - Times Higher Education Supplement, November 2002
Thoroughly recommended. - Zentralblatt MATH, 993:2002
