Advanced Health Assessment & Clinical Diagnosis in Primary Care
Joyce E. Dains
Linda Ciofu Baumann
Advanced Health Assessment in Primary Care
I think this book is great! It focuses on common symptom complaints in primary care and differential diagnosis. I am a FNP student about to graduate in 8 months and find this book to be very informative and worth every penny. I plan on suggesting this book to be required for the program.
Topology from the Differentiable Viewpoint
John Willard Milnor
University of Virginia Press
best math book ever written
Despite the lovely subject matter covered in this book, it more importanty gives one a taste of Mathematics as an intellectual discipline. It in outline shows how a mathematical theory - in this case Differential Topology - is constructed and consquently what mathematicians actually do and think about. Anyone who would like to appreciate Mathematics as a field of study rather than just learn ...
Introduction to Smooth Manifolds
John M. Lee
Beautiful! Welcome to graduate school.
Simply, this book is fantastic! I am a graduate student in mathematics taking diff. top. and we are using this book. We have covered ch 1-7, 11-15 so far, and are now going back to finish immersion theory, with Milnor as a second reference. Most of this class I have taught myself the material directly out of Lee. The book is mind blowingly good for self study. I believe that an undergraduate with ...
Ordinary Differential Equations
My own little opinion on this great book
I took ODE this semester, and I was liking the subject until I got to read the textbooks assigned to it. It is impressive how the world is filled with giant text books that are absolutely dull and useless and extremely expensive. Luckly I have always been fond of Amazon, so I searched "Ordinary Differential Equations" and came upon this book, which at first glance looks tiny and unpromising, but ...
Ordinary Differential Equations
The MIT Press
wow! differential equations made appealing
I had always hated d.e.'s until this book made me see the geometry. And I have only read a few pages. I never realized before that the existence and uniqueness theorem defines an equivalence relation on the compact manifold, where two points are equivalent iff they lie on the same flow curve. This instantly renders a d.e. visible, and not just some ugly formulas. He also made me ...
Nonlinear Dynamics And Chaos: With Applications To Physics, Biology, Chemistry And Engineering (Studies in ...
Steven H. Strogatz
Great read, even casually
Strogatz is a great writer and makes reading this even for pleasure very enjoyable! I especially loved the section where he talked about fireflies. I did cover some of these topics in a class, and it helped greatly. I understood the topics probably more than anyone else in the class. And Strogatz makes it very easy to learn, with his casual writing style. Best math-related book I've ever ...
Your Child in the Balance
Kevin T. Kalikow
A Sensitive and Intelligent Guide to a Difficult and Emotional Subject
Dealing with a child's illness in any form is always difficult and emotionally draining, but when it comes to less tangible psychological disorders, the acknowledgment of the condition and the subsequent choice of treatment for our children are among the most difficult of all medical issues a parent must deal with. The shift from Freudian therapy to pharmacological treatment of children is new ...
DSM-IV-TR Casebook: A Learning Companion to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth ...
American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc.
Great teaching aid
I teach High School Psychology and this book is very useful as a practical/interpretive guide to the raw definitions of various mental disorders as described in the DSM-IV. If using this in the classroom, make sure to preview each "case study" because some are difficult for novices to relate to the diagnoses. Overall it is a very approachable book and a necessary companion to the DSM-IV.
Differential Diagnosis Pocket: Clinical Reference Guide
Borm Bruckmeier Publishing LLC
Little HUGE book
This book is so helpful! It amazed me at the size and the amount of information that was put into the book. After using it for over a month, I will continue to carry it with me. It helps distinguish the big bads and also gives way to the everyday diagnosis for patient care. An exception to little books, with huge amounts of info~!
Introduction to Topological Manifolds (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
John M. Lee
The printing is not up to the standard of the writing
By all accounts, this and Dr. Lee's other two books on manifolds are exceptionally well-written. But my copies arrived from Amazon this week, and, unfortunately, Amazon and Springer have decided to replace the crisp offset-printing of earlier printings by lower quality digitally-printed versions, probably as a cost-cutting measure. If you care about how books look, I'd suggest trying Amazon ...
Analysis on Manifolds
James R. Munkres
Perseus Books (Sd)
I ploughed through this book years ago. I just noticed that a couple of reviews were only posted this year. I thought I would do the same. This was a great read by the way. I suspect that everyone who picked up this book at some point was looking for a way to circumvent Spivak's terse exposition. I don't blame them. ..and then Browder came out with his analysis text. So with advanced ...
Complex Variables: Introduction and Applications (Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics)
Mark J. Ablowitz
Athanssios S. Fokas
Cambridge University Press
A complete reference book for complex variables
Whether you are a student, or just in need of a good reference text, Mark J. Ablowitz' and Athanassios Fokas' book belongs in your library. Complex Variables, Introduction and Applications is refreshingly well written. In clear and logical flow, the authors present the subject of complex variables in an easy-to-understand, yet complete format suitable for both students and practicing ...
Exploring Calculus and Differential Equations with the TI-89 and TI-92 Plus
Michael B Schneider
This book should be called "Fun and Games with Calculus"!
This book is a must have for calculus students that have the TI-89 or -92plus! Instead of fumbling through the owner's manual (what a joke) trying to figure out how to do calculus on the calculator, this book gives you step by step instructions on how to do it in terms you can understand. It also comes with a disk of programs you can download onto your calculator that are so good it is ...
Dynamical Systems with Applications Using Maple
Thought I'd give a more in depth review than the others here. Most advanced math textbooks contain one or two chapters that turn me off. I must say that every chapter in this book had useful information or very good applications. The opening chapter is a brief introduction to Maple V (some Maple 8 commands are posted on the books website). Note that Maple 9 is now out and no doubt Maple X will ...
In A Page Signs & Symptoms (In a Page Series)
Ellen G. Smith
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
a must-have for healthcare students
This book is useful for both students and clinical providers (my preceptors borrow my copy quite frequently). Your school will probably NOT tell you about it, because they want you to scour many books just to find the information that's included on one page of this reference! I'm in my 2nd year of an adult and womens health nurse-practitioner program, and wish I would have come across all these ...
An Introduction to Difference Equations
One of the Very Best Introductions on Difference Equations.
Among the few introductory texts to difference equations this book is one of the very best ones. It has many features that the other texts don't have, e.g., stability theory, the Z-transform method (including a study of Volterra systems), and asymptotic behavior of solutions of difference equations (including Levinson's lemma) are studied extensively. It also contains very nice examples that ...
Differential Forms in Algebraic Topology
A unique mathematics book
This book is almost unique among mathematics books in that it strives to ensure that you have the clearest picture possible of the topics under discussion. For example almost every text that discusses spectral sequences introduces them as a completely abstract machine that pumps out theorems in a mysterious way. But it turns out that all those maps actually have a clear meaning and Bott and Tu ...
Manfredo P. Carmo
Probably the best introduction to the subject.
I had the pleasure of taking a course in Riemannian Geometry from the author himself, using the Portuguese version of this book. Do Carmo managed to cover the whole thing in one semester without breaking a sweat; I don't know how he managed, or how we did. The fact is that the book is extremely well-written. It provides geometric insight but doesn't avoid computations. Also, the choice of topics ...
The Cauchy-Schwarz Master Class: An Introduction to the Art of Mathematical Inequalities (Maa Problem Books ...
J. Michael Steele
Cambridge University Press
A delicious smorgasbord of inequalities
Professor Steele has done a wonderful job in developing the theory behind the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality. He starts off with the basic theory and then through the course of the book he teases out the limitless ways the inequality can be used. There is a breathtaking sweep of applications. What is interesting and valuable about his approach is that as he develops the building blocks he explains ...
Introduction to Dynamic Systems: Theory, Models, and Applications
David G. Luenberger
Excellent treatment of dynamic systems
This introduction to dynamic systems is presented with an algebraic formalism which makes things clear and concise. All concepts are explained intuitively as well as formally, having in mind the objective of making things clear. Few books exhibit such a good approach and other reviewers are right when they emphasize the highly pedagogical quality of Luenberger's books ! This is no overstatement. ...
