Can anyone recommend a good introductory text book for mathcad (I've got Mathcad15). I need something that covers the math operations, with plenty of fully explained examples (with keystrokes etc)? I use Mathcad as a math person (not an engineer). Many thanks. Peter Kirby.
If you are new to Mathcad I would suggest looking through the help menus. There are loads of different examples, tips....ect.
Your are at the right place if you want to learn Mathcad. If your stuck, search through the forum or create a discussion with your question.
I have attached a few documents/worksheets which might help.
Even if your not ready to look at programming yet, the document might help with the Mathcad terminology.
You should try and get a copy of the Version 11 user manual, which was a proper book. It is also available as a pdf. You may need to search the web for a copy of it.
ProE user myself and looking to try out Mathcad at some future stage but I did get our boss to buy the Tristar Quick Reference Guide for Mathcad. I had this bought at the same time as some ProE WF5 Quick Reference Guides. All the quides are spiral bound and mostly deal with one topic per page.
Anyhow looking through the Mathcad QRG seems to show a consistent approach to presenting information as it does for ProE. The book is about using the tool rather than showing you how to be a maths whizz. Worth a look on line to see what you think.
And no I do not have any financial interest in Tristar other than buying some QRGs from them.
Hope this helps.

But "a Math person" can use Mathcad too. See for example my Math animations
We have in Russia very interesting and useful forum (PlanetPTC PlanetWolfram PlanetMathWorks PlanetWaterlooMaple) where Mathcad, Maple, Mathematica, Matlab live together - see http://forum.exponenta.ru. A visitor of this can get an answer by using an appropriate software
