This book is intended primarily for students without science A-levels or the equivalent who are entering an engineering degree or Higher National Diploma course via a foundation year.
In this new edition the coverage has been extended to include five new topics: one deals with the nucleus, and the others extend the discussion of materials into the first year degree and diploma context. There is a new appendix on calculation technique.
