Is "Nuclear reactor physics" a good book? written by Weston M. Stacey
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.
i study lamrash and stacey books but the problem is to know if your ansewr is right or not because there is no final ansewrs in these books so if anyone have or know where i can find a manual for the books pleasezzzzzzzzzzzzzz
