What do you guys think? I'm surprised and don't know what to think.
Some of them can be browsed on Amazon through the 'Look Inside' feature. These seem to be aimed to an older audience based on reviews people have left, though I really can't imagine that based on the pages I viewed.
cool, I did not know you could view it on amazon. I'll have to check it out. It would be interesting to be able to read a copy of one of the books and see to see what it's like and if you actually learn something.
macsbrains, define "older audience" please, lol
I thought Databases was a very easy course, but someone at another university thought it was very difficult, so he got the manga guide (and passed the course which he was already doing for the 3rd time or something). It was explained in the manga guide the way it was explained to me by the teacher.
I don't know about the other guides, but I think the Databases one was suitable for people using it to pass their (basic) class.
What do you think of manga guides? I'm just now learning they exist.
Noriko is just getting started as a junior reporter for the Asagake Times. She wants to cover the hard-hitting issues, like world affairs and politics, but does she have the smarts for it? Thankfully, her overbearing and math-minded boss, Mr. Seki, is here to teach her how to analyze her stories with a mathematical eye.
In The Manga Guide to Calculus, you'll follow along with Noriko as she learns that calculus is more than just a class designed to weed out would-be science majors. You'll see that calculus is a useful way to understand the patterns in physics, economics, and the world around us, with help from real-world examples like probability, supply and demand curves, the economics of pollution, and the density of Shochu (a Japanese liquor).
