Mathematica Navigator is the only book you need to understand and use the new Mathematica. Part tutorial and part handbook, this updated guidebook provides a thorough introduction to the software plus practical information and tips for using Mathematica on a daily basis to solve mathematical problems. The book emphasizes the use of graphics, methods of applied mathematics and statistics, and programming.
While no previous experience with Mathematica is required, most chapters also include advanced material so that the book will be a valuable resource for beginners and experienced users. You'll want to keep it close by your computer for easy reference.
Based on recent releases of Mathematica

"Novices or beginners who may be students of engineering, science or mathematics....definitely needs Mathematica Navigator. ...Those who do not use Mathematica everyday, and may work with it for a period of time and then not again for several weeks or more...finds that Mathematica Navigator is totally indispensable. ...Finally, some users are constantly working with Mathematica, probably teaching courses or writing programs...should definitely have Mathematica Navigator. ...Run, do not walk, to get your copy."
-Robert M. Lurie, MIT for iJournals.net
"Each [chapter] is a gem of clarity and concise application, but space limits the praise. If the book has any failings, it is in leaving the reader begging for more."
-Scientific Computing and Instrumentation
"This is an excellent reference book that I would recommend to any one who is thinking about becoming (or already is) a serious user of Mathematica...I am particularly impressed by the organization which allows a mathematician to approach Mathematica by specific mathematical topics rather than using the organization of Wolfram's Mathematica Book. In addition, I find that the text is clearly written and the examples are well-chosen."
- Bill Emerson, Metropolitan State University
"Mathematica Navigator is packed with excellent examples...an invaluable companion to any textbook for most Mathematica-enriched courses."
- Fred Szabo, Concordia University
"...does a fantastic job at introducing Mathematica for the applied scientist. The book's use of Mathematica is slick, intelligent and comprehensive. It emphasizes Mathematica's strengths, and does it in the best possible way."
- Joaquin Carbonara, Buffalo State University
"There is a great need for this book. The outstanding feature...is the great variety of Mathematica programs."
- Mike Mesterton-Gibbons, Florida State University
"The present book is one of the best sources in many respects: its perfect layout, carefully thought-of exposition of the fine points of the software, sophisticated and illuminating examples that are all available on the accompanying CD-ROM. The topics discussed cover many topics which occur in the first two or three years of universioty curriculum in Mathematics such as calculus in single and several variables, linear algebra, differential equations, numerical analysis, partial differential equations."
