the book we'll be using, from what i hear, is not very well laid out. The book is written by our professor...and well, the professors review is filled with students saying bad things about his book. Now i have had a free online preview of chapter 1 of the book and it seems all right. Still, i would like to have another one for a reference. I would like to buy a Mathematical Methods for Physicists book that i can look back to 15 years from now. Thanks!
