All 7 reviews »I HAVE SEEN FUNDAMENTALS OF THIS BOOK. SIMPLY AMAZING. VERY HELPFUL TO THE STUDENTS. I AM FROM JNTU,KAKINADA. EXCELLENT PRESENTATION. NUMBER OF PROBLEMS WERE SOLVED IN THIS BOOK.

I AM VERY HAPPY AND VERY CLEAR ABOUT ENGG.MECHANICS. THANKS TO AUTHOR AND THE PUBLISHER.

ANY OTHER BOOKS FROM THIS AUTHOR PLEASE INFORM.

MANY MANY THANKS.
