Best books for Vector Mechanics: Statics and/or Dynamics

  1. Sep 9, 2014 #1
    Between Beer and Hibbeler, which is the better book? Are there any other books beside those two that are any good?

    Are there any books that I can use to complement either of these two to get a more theoretical understanding of are they fine alone?

    I was looking for a book for the same subject a while ago and I got some suggestions in favor of the book "Engineering Mechanics- Statics & Dynamics" by Andrew Pytel & Jaan Kiusalaas :)

    I would recommend Beer & Johnson over Hibbler every day of the week. Overall, these authors are very good, and thousands and thousands of students have learned the subject from them.
