User reviews about the book
Nirth worth the money
book is suspect
All of the reviews are written on or near the same day. One review offers advise to keep the paragraphs short? C'mon! Its clear that the writers are gaming the reviews to get a high rating. The book is suspect if people have to resort to such BS to fake a rating.
CS103- Great Book
This book was extremely helpful and got me through my MATLAB course at Vanderbilt. I love the simple and easy-to-follow explanations. Nothing is left up in the air. The interactions with the software are clean-cut, elegant and easy to use. I like the sample problems, but it would be nice if there were a few more of each, with similar goals, but some details changed, just for the sake of extra practice.
This book provides the necessary tools for basic computer programming in MATLAB. It's also fun to read and very clear with its step-by-step explanations. Thumbs up! :)
Great for beginners
This book is very helpful for people using MATLAB for the first time. It approaches aspects of MATLAB in a logical manner, and I learned a lot from its examples and definitions.
Great Read! Easy to follow for new programmers and can even teach seasoned programmers a few new tricks. Well worth the few dollars for anyone with an interest in programming.
This textbook is very helpful and explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand. There is even a sense of humor throughout the text that I personally appreciated. The practice problems at the end of each chapter were a bit difficult at times, but had step by step answers linked to them and really helped me ace the class.
It was very well organized and helpful. The example problems mixed in with the text helped me to understand the concepts
Very Effective Textbook
This is the first edition, so there are a fair number of small errors, mostly just minor grammatical sleights. The authors seem to be actively working to find these errors, and most of them will disappear by the next edition. Most importantly, this book makes learning Matlab simple. The Matlab language has some quirks, and the book does a great job of explaining them. The book reads as easily as possible given the content, and is a great tool.
This book was extremely helpful. The first half of the semester was taught by a bad professor, and this book was all I had. In the second half, the author of the book taught and was much better. Still, the book was an invaluable resource because it explained things clearly and in non-computer language. It provides simple as well as challenging problems and concepts for a wide range of users.
