i think the excel one is longer.. i don't know, i never used the excel one.

My post may sound irrelevant. But I actually tried out for Engineering Studies so I know some good textbooks. I was going to use the Excel Engineering Studies. It is outlined very well and some schools actually use this as a textbook (believe it or not).

we use a combination of the following:

- The OTEN Engineering book
-Copeland
- an engineering mechanics book, can't rember the author, really good.

We use the OTEN book and i use the copeland, excel and a brown book on mechanics by Schlenker. The Copeland book is really good for civil and the excel book is pretty good for everything. The Schlenker book is really really detailed but is good for examples on the harder mechanics type questions.
