This book is as good as it gets. Most of the material can still be used with Mathematica 11. It is wrtitten very clearly, and is aimed at mathematical applications. The authors provide examples which make you think and come to an aha moment,perhaps after the presentation of an example not necessarily understood on the first reading. As the book continues You see--or more precisely I saw--expressions I did not fully understand and which were not completely explained, but which lead after investigation and consideration to "aha" moments of realization--and the realization that complete explanations in the book would require many more pages. I have been "doing Mathematica" since the first edition came out and somewhere have a set of floppies for use on a DOS machine. And I have many many scribbled books on the subject. As far as learning how to use the program for math, I would put this one at the top---and I can't wait until the next edition is released---and a little bird told me this will happen in the not too distant future.

Version is outdated. Stops with Mathematica version six; current version is nine.
Programming section still quite valid, as are parts of chapters that are version independent. It is well written at a level that can be understood readily by beginning students - most particularly by those who have older versions of the software installed
Not as useful as updated version would have been.
I realize that it is difficult to keep up with program versions in a printed book. I should have been more observant in perusing the book, before ordering it.

I read through this quickly today and found it very informative, if alittle short
on 'wow' factor. Learning Mathmatica depends on gaining a command of its
quirky syntax and i thought the author did a good job of guiding the reader through
an interesting array of examples in precalc, calc and lin alg, nicely driving home
various syntax issues in multiple contexts. Graphing and Manipulate functions get
special attention. The threshold issue on help books is "is this better than the
documentation". The answer is a decided yes. I might have wished for some extended
problem examples--like newton's method, or pendelum problem--that lend themselves
to the mathmatica notebook format. Minus one star for an unsatisfactory introduction
to wolfram programming. Overall--a very readable and likable presentation of an
exciting software. Addendum: added back a star after visiting the website and
downloading the reference notebooks--an awesome collection of syntax.

This is a good way to quickly learn the basic syntax and commands of Mathematica so that you can begin using the software alongside your textbook.

I purchased Mathematica v. 8 as an adjunct to my college courses and was finding the included material to be, while thorough, lacking in actual application. I was also unable to shell out for their seminars so, I bought this book which has proved very helpful. It gives a general introduction to Mathematica and it's use using immediately applicable examples and follows by covering areas that are studied in a typical university progression: Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra and Matrices, etc. I find myself referencing it just because the examples are very complete. Also included are end-of-chapter exercises to enhance learning (it was written by a professor targeted to a student after all).

This book is easy to follow, explains things well and in detail, and builds on what you learn. It gives you examples which you can replicate and tweak. It has a troubleshooting chapter, which is very useful. It also has some exercises at the end of each chapter if you want to try out your skills. I highly recommend it!

Excellent introduction for new users of this complex tool. Doesn't go very far into Mathematica's capabilities.
Great for learning Mathematica and also made me review - relearn my university mathematics which I hadn't used for many years.
