    It's a reasonably good book. Another is Lamarsh. Either book may be difficult for self-study depending on one's background and mathematical capability.

    It's decent, but watch out for changing symbols. A symbol that means one thing on one page will probably mean something completely different in the next chapter... even within the same chapter, one quantity could be given a couple of different symbols... it's also pretty info dense. If you want a lot of text explanation, this is the wrong book for you.

    Duderstadt & Hamilton seems to be the bible around here, as long as you can find it... it's out of print and horribly expensive.
