    Posted in different section decided to move this post here

    I'm currently using Statics: Analysis and design of systems in equilibrium by Sherri D sheppard.

    My classmates and I want another statics book for reference. We are looking into

    Ferdinand P. Beer (Author), Jr., E. Russell Johnston (Author), Elliot R. Eisenberg (Author), William E. Clausen (Author), George H. Staab (Author)

    Engineering Mechanics-Statics 10e

    we use this one in our statics class, so far I find it pretty good, nice diagrams and helpfull examples... also I think you can get a supplementary solutions manual for it

    I recommend Engineering Mechanics: Statics - Beer and Johnstons, but i used at college Engineering Mechanics: Statics - Jaan Kiusalaas and Andrew Pytel. Both are good, but the first one has more interesting exercices, i recommend get both.
