Good. Tigh Clean Text. Some Edge Wear. This book was written to help students of science and engineering gain a thorough undestanding of those ubiquitous vector operators: The divergence, gradient, curl, and Laplacian. The brief development of the subject sometimes given as an aside in science courses, or the rigorous treatment usually given in mathematics courses, may leave the student without much feeling for the physical significance of the formalism of vector calculus.
I'm using this book to accompany a physics-based oceanography class where we use vector calculus a lot. The book puts everything in the context of electrical engineering which might be very helpful for some people but it just makes it seem irrelevant for my use.
