In Fall 2003, five teachers in the College of Engineering at the University of South Florida contributed questions for a Fundamentals of Engineering Question of the Day website... More > (http://fe.eng.usf.edu). On this website, everyday a question posed with multiple choices is selected randomly from a pool of questions. The user gets the feedback about the choice he/she makes, and can seek a hint to answer the question. Over the years, we have received queries from our website visitors if we could provide them with the complete solutions to all the questions in the test bank. We are now presenting this information to you at a nominal charge as a soft-cover book. The book is divided into sections that have been established for the Fundamental of Engineering (General Engineering) examination by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).< Less

Between 2002-2007, the Introduction to Matrix Algebra book was downloaded free of charge by more than 30,000 users from 50 different countries. This book is an extended primer for undergraduate... More > Matrix Algebra. The book is either to be used as a refresher material for students who have already taken a course in Matrix Algebra or used as a just-in-time tool if the burden of teaching Matrix Algebra has been placed on several courses. In my own department, the Linear Algebra course was taken out of the curriculum a decade ago. It is now taught just in time in courses like Statics, Programming Concepts, Vibrations, and Controls.
There are ten chapters in the book 1) INTRODUCTION, 2) VECTORS, 3) BINARY MATRIX OPERATIONS, 4) UNARY MATRIX OPERATIONS, 5) SYSTEM OF EQUATIONS, 6) GAUSSIAN ELIMINATION, 7) LU DECOMPOSITION, 8) GAUSS-SEIDAL METHOD, 9) ADEQUACY OF SOLUTIONS, 10) EIGENVALUES AND EIGENVECTORS.< Less
