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.
