This book is a self-teaching text aimed at students of engineering courses whose performance on their qualifying course was less than adequate. Such students should work through the text before beginning the degree course, so that serious gaps in their knowledge may be filled. The material comprises the fundamentals of statics, kinematics and kinetics normally covered on an A level course but with an engineering bias. The format comprises three programmed texts, arranged in 'frames'. The programs are designed to be worked through sequentially.
