MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving, Fourth Edition, has been updated to reflect the functionality of the current version of MATLAB, including the new H2 Graphics system. It features new and revised end-of-chapter exercises, more engineering applications to help the reader learn this software tool in context, and a new section on object-oriented programming in MATLAB. MATLAB has become the standard software tool for solving scientific and engineering problems due to its powerful built-in functions and its ability to program.
Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book guides the reader both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB's extensive capabilities for tackling engineering problems. The book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems using both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic fundamental to many engineering applications.
- Presents programming concepts and MATLAB built-in functions side-by-side
- Offers a systematic, step-by-step approach, building on concepts throughout the book and facilitating easier learning
- Includes sections on common pitfalls and programming guidelines to direct students toward best practices
- Combines basic programming concepts, built-in functions, and advanced topics for problem solving with MATLAB to make this book uniquely suitable for a wide range of courses teaching or using MATLAB across the curriculum

That said, computer programming is probably the most pedantic discipline known to man - you have got to be precise in order for the programme to work efficiently. Similarly books about computer programming must be accurate if readers are to be convinced of its ongoing value.
Hence it is disappointing that neither she nor her editors have spotted so many errors in examples she gives to illustrate the application of everyday simple scripts (see script for figure 3.5). Also, she likes to use unnecessary and or inappropriate adjectives which I hope she cuts out of her next edition. The reader will be the best judge of whether something is easy, good or simple, not the writer.
That said, I feel I will get used to challenging her examples and eventually value this book more and increase my rating of it.
It is an impressive contribution to the subject.
