Since their publication nearly 40 years ago, Beer and Johnston's Vector Mechanics for Engineers books have set the standard for presenting statics and dynamics to beginning engineering students. The New Media Versions of these classic books combine the power of cutting-edge software and multimedia with Beer and Johnston's unsurpassed text coverage. The package is also enhanced by a new problems supplement. For more details about the new media and problems supplement package components, see the New to this Edition section below.

From the Publisher:

Conceptually accurate and error-free problem material.
Careful, step-by-step presentation followed in each unit of each chapter. Each unit can be covered in one class.
Artwork carefully drawn and located next to corresponding material.
Through the extensive use of free-body diagrams in Statics and effective force diagrams in Dynamics, students are given a more intuitive understanding of key concepts.
The use of color in this 4-color text helps students to better distinguish between vectors: red equals acceleration and forces (applied and effective), green equals velocity, and blue equals position.
The Sixth Edition features Beer and Johnston's famous Sample Problems, over 3,000 homework problems (95% new), and new Solving Problems on Your Own sections which provide students with strategies and tips for problem solving.
Many computer problems relevant to the design process have been added to the end of chapter problem sets.
Working Model(r) 3D Simulations CD-ROM. This powerful software supplement contains the following: Working Model 3D Student Edition Text (a 3D engine/viewer not available with any other Statics and Dynamics text); 43 Working Model Simulations (also in 3D) based on Sample Problems and Exercises from the books; 43 videos (AVIs) of the simulations and an HTML page; Working Model Tutorial/User's Guide.
Interactive Statics and Dynamics Tutorial. Always available with the 6th Edition, this tutorial, which expands on key concepts from the texts, has been enhanced and is now available on CD-ROM. For each concept there is a clear, physical elaboration; examples; quizzes for drill and practice; and cross-references to the texts.
FE Exam Interactive Review for Statics and Dynamics. This review includes 100 fully interactive sample questions from the statics and dynamics portions of the FE exam. Hints for solution are given and correct answers explained.
The Statics Problems Supplement contains over 500 new homework problems arranged by chapter. Most chapter problem sets include several problems set up expressly for computer solution. A complete Instructor's Solutions Manual will be available to help instructors use the new material for homework or testing.
