    Last year I went on an access course to get onto an engineering degree. Prior to this I hadn't really studied since I was 17 (I'm 21 now). Basically, I need advice on textbooks that cover my modules - Mechanics, materials, engineering maths, electronics...etc that also explain the basic methodology and concepts other textbooks often gloss over. Any help is appreciated.

    The bibles:

    Engineering Mathematics by K.A. Stroud (I think it's now on the 7th edition) Not cheap, but nothing else comes close.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Engineering...2J7VBQAW9GJCKH

    The Art of Electronics by Paul Horowitz (and J. Dexter Booth original edition). Now 3rd edition. No electronics engineer is without a copy.

    Engineering textbooks aren't cheap, and you probably won't need to go and buy everything that's on the reading list. Some places might have copies available online or in university libraries.

    I'm about to put my old textbooks on eBay, but I can put up a list here if anyone's looking to buy (unless it's against TSR rules?) A few years old by now but they got me through MEng (Aeronautics) at Durham.
