Is it common to find the "applied" explanations more confusing than the "theoretical" ones?

E.g. thermodynamics seems VERY confusing if I try to learn it from engineering textbooks, but VERY understandable if I try to learn it from Schroeder's book.

What personal examples do you guys have of this phenomena, if any?
