Thirty years ago, Michael R. Lindeburg, PE, never dreamed that a compilation of handouts for an engineering fundamentals course would lead him to become one of today’s most popular engineering authors. With millions of books in print, he revolutionized engineering exam review. Now, with his latest book, Core Engineering Concepts for Students and Professionals, he is once again entering innovative territory.
“Core Engineering Concepts draws on my 30 plus years of experience about what engineers need during college and afterwards in their careers,” says Michael R. Lindeburg, PE. “Every page tries to anticipate an engineer’s questions: ‘What do I need to know or remember about this subject?’ ‘How can I quickly come up to speed—from concepts to practical applications—in a subject I haven’t seen for years?’ And, ‘Where can I learn about something I’m not at all familiar with?’”
With comprehensive coverage of thousands of engineering topics in a single book, Core Engineering Concepts is the first cross-disciplinary engineering reference of its kind. It can be used by anyone studying or practicing in any engineering field—it can even be used by non-engineers. This groundbreaking resource
- covers the breadth of a 4-year engineering degree
- contains civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, and industrial engineering subjects
- features 82 chapters covering thousands of engineering topics
- contains more than 580 examples with step-by-step solutions
- references over 3,700 essential engineering equations and formulas
- presents over 315 figures and 780 tables
- lists fully defined nomenclature for each chapter
- includes a comprehensive, multiple-entry index of more than 15,000 terms
Engineering students and professionals agree that Core Engineering Concepts is the ideal reference to use throughout college and their careers. “It would be great for looking up concepts that were briefly covered in my early engineering courses, but that I’m now expected to know,” remarked one recent graduate.
When asked what motivated him to write Core Engineering Concepts, Lindeburg replied, “I wanted to write a book so compelling that an engineering major would want it even though it wasn’t on the required textbook list, so useful that he or she would never dream of selling it at the end of the semester, and, so attractive that libraries would have to keep the book in their locked stacks.” As pre-publication reviews continue to be favorable, it’s clear he has succeeded.
Core Engineering Concepts for Students and Professionals (ISBN: 978-1-59126-190-2, 1,440 pages, 8 ½ x 11, hardcover, $199.95) is now available from PPI. It can be ordered at http://www.ppi2pass.com/CORE.
Core Engineering Concepts for Students and Professionals is written by Michael R. Lindeburg, PE. Mr. Lindeburg holds bachelor of science and master of science degrees in industrial engineering from Stanford University. Since 1975, he has authored 30 engineering and exam prep references and spent thousands of hours teaching students and practicing engineers. Mr. Lindeburg is widely acknowledged as one of the best known engineering authors, and his books and classroom teachings have influenced millions of people, helping them to advance in their careers.
PPI, located in Belmont, California, has been providing engineers with licensing exam preparation materials and references for over 35 years. More than 2 million professionals have relied on PPI to prepare them for their exams.
