Engineering Economic Analysis by Donald G. Newnan,Jerome P. Lavelle,Ted G. Eschenbach

His co-authors, Donald Newnan and Ted Eschenbach, have both taken home the prize in the past.

Chapter 13, Replacement Analysis, has been rewritten to clarify the comparison of existing assets with newer alternatives. Appendix 7A, Difficulties Solving for an Interest Rate, has been thoroughly revised to use the power of spreadsheets to solve problems. End-of-chapter problems are reorganized and updated throughout.

Ted G. Eschenbach is a consultant and Professor Emeritus of Engineering Management at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Jerome P. Lavelle is Associate Dean of Academic Affairs in the College of Engineering at North Carolina State University. Excellent book for folks taking classes in engineering economics.

Donald G. Newnan, Jerome P. Lavelle, and Ted G. Eschenbach. The authors give very helpful tips on how to construct and complete the analysis in Excel as well as by hand. I borrowed a stack of similar books from the library as backup, and of all the books I like this one best. This book covers the subject so well that I haven't found I've needed to reach into that library stack much. I highly recommend getting the accompanying Study Guide too, it has lots of great practice problems.

With its logical organization and extensive ancillary package, Engineering Economic Analysis is widely regarded as a highly effective tool for teaching and learning

Highly regarded by professors and students alike , Engineering Economic Analysis, Eighth Edition, introduces the fundamental concepts of engineering economics. Written for standard engineering economics courses, this bestselling volume by Donald G. Newnan, Jerome P. Lavelle, and Ted G. Eschenbach covers essential time value of money principles for engineering projects and isolates the problems and decisions engineers commonly face. It also examines the tools necessary to properly analyze and solve those problems. Revised in 2000, the eighth edition focuses on the use of spreadsheets, teaching students to use the enormous capabilities of modern software, rather than relying on spreadsheet templates. The majority of the chapters conclude with sections designed to help students create spreadsheets based on the material covered in each chapter. The book's organization gives professors the flexibility to omit spreadsheet instruction without loss of continuity (accommodating shorter courses) or to require that all computations be done with spreadsheets, thus preparing students to use this essential tool for real-life problems.
Reviews: 7
If you must buy this book for a course, you don't have a choice but to get it, of course. But as far as the content, this book does not adequately explain the concepts, and (even worse) does not have enough examples. The answers to end-of-chapter review problems are sometimes given...and sometimes not! You are in a very, very bad situation if you end up with a poor professor and this book, because you will not be able to "teach yourself" the material, as the text does not have enough detailed examples and doesn't have answers to the practice problems. I don't even understand the purpose of having practice problems if there are no answers.
Overall, I cannot recommend the book, because it is not a sufficient resource for learning the material. You will find yourself relying very heavily on outside material.
This book is very specific in what it aims to teach, and assumes that you know how to do basic word problems (which, you should). The information in this book is very concise, and filled with helpful examples rather than detailed explanations. It may not be super descriptive in terms of reasoning, but this subject is best taught by example anyways. The main thing you need to know in order to make this book work for you is how to dissect a word problem. And for engineers who think they don't need economics...I feel sorry for whoever hires you on accident.

EDIT, after taking course: The later chapters are a little more vague, since they assume that you remember everything you learned before. The problems get much more complex than at the beginning, and the book does little to help you decipher the text. In the end, it is left for you to interpret the text. Also, it is a good idea to start dabbling with Excel, since the later chapters rely heavily on its usage.
This book makes hundreds of mistakes and the answer document is worse. The problem is that it is a Math 112 perspective on finances that fails to clearly and logically define the problems it sets out to solve.
Excellent book for folks taking classes in engineering economics. It provides problems and easy to follow solutions. I highly recommend it except for the price. I wished it were cheaper.

The book is in slightly worse shape then I'd like. One page is almost completely ripped out of the book. There might be more but I haven't made it that far in the book yet.
The cost of the paperback Indian version is perfect and should be a model for all text books. I have a difficult time understanding the examples but the text and explanations are helpful and clear. The paperback is in black and white but personally that doesn't affect anything.
Putting aside how much I hated this class, the book was actually pretty good. Not as user-friendly as it could have been. You can tell it was written by engineers and proof read by engineers. Very dense.
Example in this book is not really clear. You need to have a serious understanding in order to complete them.
