Best Statics Textbook?

  1. Feb 24, 2013 #1
    Please help! I'm having trouble in Statics, and my textbook isn't helping. I've got Vector Mechanics for Engineers by Beer and Johnson. I've heard it's supposed to be a good text, but am finding it inscrutable for some reason. Any recommendations?

    All of my mechanical engineering friends in college used that book (certainly an earlier edition) many years ago .... I am not a mechanical engineer, but I happened to have run across this free online textbook awhile ago:

    Not sure if it helps, but at least the price is right.
