A Guide to MATLAB: For Beginners and Experienced Users

Customer Reviews:

can be used for most versions of Matlab

By W Boudville - January 27, 2007

[A review of the 2nd edition.]

The 2nd edition includes descriptions of Matlab 7. But in fact, much of the text seems unchanged from the 1st edition. Because while Matlab continues to add refinements, it is by now very stable in its core functionality. Thus, at least for beginners, the book is useful, regardless of which precise version of Matlab is on your machine.

Many of the examples are indeed quite easy. The underlying maths knowledge is at the undergraduate level. Say for 1st or 2nd year undergrad maths courses. One example uses Lagrange's equation in classical mechanics. That seems to be about as advanced as matters get.

The graphical capability of Matlab given by the book is equivalent to what Mathematica provides. Though perhaps the latter has somewhat spiffier graphics, the graphical functionality is about the same.

Unorganized and unintuitive

By jontell3 - February 3, 2013

The book is ordered in a way that makes intuitive learning very difficult. The built in functions are breezed over offering little explanation as to there actual mechanisms. Overall, gives little insight into MATLAB.

Good small textbook

By M. Ercolino "thenakedeye" - November 21, 2010

This is more of a textbook than a guide. It has good examples and a little code, but I was hoping for more code examples and found it only a good companion to my normal textbook,
