Textbook Revolution

Posted on August 22, 2007  Comments (1)

Textbook Revolution is a resource on free textbooks and free related course materials. In general, I must say the prices of textbooks seem crazy. This is another tool great open access resource.

At Textbook Revolution, you’ll find links to textbooks and select educational resources of all kinds. Some of the books are PDF files, others are viewable only online as e-books. Most books are aimed at undergraduates, but there are at least a few resources at every level, from kindergarten to post-doc. All of the books are offered for free by their respective copyright holders for online viewing. Beyond that, each book is as individual as the author behind it.

Some examples: The Scientist and Engineer’s Guide to Digital Signal Processing by Steven W. Smith; Light and Matter by Benjamin Crowell; A First Course in Linear Algebra by Robert A Beeze; Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer’s Guide by
Dave Thomas and Introduction to Statistical Thought by Michael Lavine.

While on the subject of textbooks, I will plug my father’s book: Statistics for Experimenters – it is my blog so I get to do what I want 🙂
