Nice survey of mathermatical methods
by Jim Crumley on 2005-08-19 14:22:07, review #463
This book does a good job of introducing many mathematical topics that come up in physics classes. The book emphasizes using math as tool, over proofs. The book is aimed at the sophomore physics major, and I think that it hits that level fairly well. The book covers a wide variety of topics in a little over 400 pages, so it just scratches the surface on some topics, but that is to be expected. The book is written informally and it is easy to follow.

Overall, this book is a nice alternative to the commercial books in this area.
