Hi. Could anyone provide me with any recommendations for a good book to study materials science. I need something introductory for a first year mechanical engineering student. A somewhat easy to understand book with some problems to solve is what I am looking for. I am hoping to avoid paying big bucks for a full university textbook. If the book can be found in a bookstore for less I would be happy. Or even if its something I might be able to find in a public library would be great.
