I am a first year engineering student and am struggling to find good resources for fluid mechanics. We are using the Munson book but I don't find it very useful and I didn't take a level physics either. Can anyone suggest YouTube channels, textbooks or websites that they've found useful.

Thank you.

Hello,
I'm still in year 13 so I'm probably not the best person to take advice from.
But just a suggestion: Fluid Mechanics: A Very Short Introduction. The books from 'Very short introductions' are usually good. I don't know how good the fluid mechanics one is but I guess it's worth a shot. They're usually written by Cambridge/Oxford professors/fellows so they're probably reliable.
Obviously don't take my word alone lol; just a suggestion.
I hope you find something useful!

Oh,nevermind, I just realised the book will be released in 2022 (what an annoying coincidence).
Sorry about that

I would say the principles of fluids are pretty simple the difficult bit is being comfortable applying the governing equations.

I would start with tutorial questions build from the basics, get comfortable and build up the complexity.
