Counter The favorite study guide of engineering students around the world, Schaum's have an easy-to-follow format, a solved-problem approach to learning, and clear explanations of both theory and application. This popular introduction to statics and strengths of materials gives you 435 problems solved step by step, plus hundreds more problems to try on your own (you can check your answers at the back of the book.) With thorough introductions to basic principles; nonconcurrent and concurrent coplanar force systems; stress, torsion, shear, deflection, and deformation; connections; and all other important topics taught in this course, this guide can help you spend less time studying and still make better grades!
