Hey guys im a first year chemical engineer and i am in serious need of a good book to help me from failing thermodynamics. Our lectures are just equations upon equations and i can't tell whats what. What i really want is a user friendly thermodynamics book for university students. I really need your help so if anyone knows of a really good book could you please let me know

Elements of Physical Chemistry by Peter Atkins & Julio de Paula. It's not specifically a thermodynamic book; it it covers all the basics of physical chemistry for first year chemists. If you can get hold of a copy at your library it's worth taking a look through to see if it can help.

I study Engineering also where Thermodynamics is one of my modules. A very good book to get would be 'Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach' by Yunus Cengel and Michael Boles. It takes you from zero to hero literally! You will find that these books are essential for your years studying Engineering. All the stuff about Entropy, Enthalpy, Energy, P-V diagrams, T-S diagrams can seem confusing, but the book explains it well so you get a really good understanding of it. Instead of buying the books, as they can be quite heavy and expensive (50 quid from waterstones), why not get an e version? Here are the links to the book AND the solutions manual to download the book, so you can get most of out it!

I am not too sure if it helps, but we do a fair deal of thermodynamics in chemistry as well, and it might be worthwhile to look at

Thermodynamics of Chemical Processes by Gareth Price

Like in many answers, I will not bombard you with many books titles and list, I will suggest a good book that are totally worth reading. I would like to recommend the following Thermodynamicsbooks. This complete guide shows you, basic principals of thermodynamics. You can learn numerous applications of thermodynamics in our daily life. Also, every topic in this book organized in the way that anyone can understand easily.

Probably best to first check the date that the original post was made. I guess that after nine years, Latkan might not be too interested in a book on basic thermodynamics, what with them graduating in engineering, oh about six years ago. There is a chance that they might not even be checking TSR anymore!
