The Wiley Advantage
 Focuses On Visual Learning: The illustrations use color, shading, perspective, and dimension to clearly convey concepts while striving to place these concepts in the context of real world components and objects. These illustrations have been prepared by an engineer and educator (the author), to train future engineers.
 Problemsolving schema: The book and webbased features are designed to assist students in organizing and categorizing concepts and problemsolving procedures.
 Style and clarity of examples: This textbook places great emphasis on the presentation and quality of example problems. The author’s commentary explains why various steps are taken and describes the rationale for each step in a solution process while the accompanying illustrations help build the mental imagery needed to transfer the concepts to differingsituations.
 Homework philosophy: This textbook includes over 1,300 homework problems in a range of difficulty.
