Hello all. First post. I am starting a HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in September as a mature student. I've not touched maths since GCSE 15 years ago (grade C) So looking to brush up on the maths and get a head start. I've seen that two maths books stand out and are recommend to go with this course, but really not sure which one to go for. Money is no issue here. So it's between the "Engineering Mathematics" books by either: K.A. Stroud or John Bird. Which would you recommend and why? Many thanks. Dan

I've used that book in first year of uni. They expect you to have A-Level Maths knowledge. I would say refresh or re-learn GCSE maths level and work upwards and learn A-Level maths standard work.
