    This thread is for people looking for online learning resources, to supplement their course books. I will only be posting links of websites that let you browse through their entire content online either free or for a very nominal fee!! I will also attempt to rate these websites based on their content,tools used and services provided

    Please do not ask about "free e-books" here!!

    @ mods : didn't know where to put this thread so put it here, please shift to relevant section in case it doesn't belong here!!

    1. I was looking for online calculus resources and I found this analyzemath.com.

    I found it to be a decent website. It contains theory, which is explained with the help of java applets, sample problems and downloadable worksheets (in MS Excel format) among other things..It even has printable copies of graph papers (to learn how to draw graphs of functions) in different colors!!! And can you believe it, this is free of charge. It is maintainted by a mathematics lecturer from United Arab Emirates University (UGRU).


    2. Another good website I encountered, is

    efunda.com

    They have articles on most topics an engineer might want to discuss/read/update himself with. Some of them being, periodic table, design data (regarding design of springs, screw threads, plastic parts, etc), conversion tables, mathematics resources, et al.

    Some of the articles may be available only to members, after registering for a fee, which range from $10/month to $60/annum for individuals. This is not much, considering that most home tutors charge anywhere between Rs. 200 - 500/hr at least!!

    Will add more websites as and when I come across them.

    In case you want to know how steel is made, please visit Tata Steel's website given below. It has a very nice flash animation which gives you information about almost all the aspects of steel making. Very informative I must say!!

    Tata Steel - Steel Making Process

    [UPDATE]

    The link is no longer working! Will try to find the new link and update it!

    Here is another good website that offers free designing help to engineers, mostly mechanical engineers..It has standard drawing sheet templates (which you can download), design data, and other very useful resources which include Engineering calculators for calculating, for example, specifications of a screw gear. Some of these require java enabled plug-ins though.

    Materials Science resources at the University of Cambridge.

    Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science (DoITPoMS)

    Excellent website. It has very lucid explanations using very easy to understand flash animations. Lot of resources are there. Mechanical engineers who are having trouble in Engineering materials/metallurgy can visit this for some guidance. The Miller indices, etc have been explained in good detail.

  20. If you are an aspiring engineer and preparing for various entrance examinations you might be in search of good test series on various topics.:rolleyes::rolleyes: Try out Tests by APT ACADEMIC SOLUTIONS for AIEEE and IITJEEEwhere series of tests on Physics, Chemistry and Maths are available.
