need a list of books for general reference for the future. currently a master level engineering student, I went through undergrad with some confusing books and I want to acquire some modern books on individual topics that are well received.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

for specialized topics, I am in need of introductory or general approach books into these topics. I paid a trip to libraries and most of the books I found either require a lot of previous knowledge or are too old for current generation to understand.

here are a list of topics I am looking for

I think there's a good list of common recommendations and if you have it please post it here thanks.

mechanics:

continuum mechanics

fluid mechanics

computational mechanics

biomechanics

mathematics:

numerical methods

finite element

smooth particle hydrodynamics

general college materials for personal references

physics:

general physics 1st year

mathematics:

numerical analysis

linear algebra

calculus
