    THE FAST AND PAINLESS WAY TO GRASP THE FUNDAMENTALS OF BASIC ASTRONOMY . . . WITHOUT FORMAL TRAINING Want to master astronomy or aerospace engineering but are intimidated by the complex formulas and equations? Tried other self-teaching guides but were turned off by the dry, complicated presentation? Problem solved! Astronomy Demystified is a totally different, very entertaining, and amazingly effective way to learn the mathematics, fundamentals, and general concepts of astronomy.

    With Astronomy Demystified, you ease into the subject one simple step at a time – at your own speed. Unlike most other books on the topic, general concepts are presented first – and the details follow. In order to make the learning process as clear and simple as possible, heavy-duty math, formulas, and equations are kept at a minimum.

    THIS UNIQUE, SELF-TEACHING TEXT OFFERS:

    * Questions at the end of every chapter and section to reinforce learning and pinpoint your weaknesses

    * A 100-question final exam for self-assessment

    * Tips on how to get the most out of observational tools such as binoculars and telescopes

    * Discussion of the special problems associated with observing the sky at “invisible wavelengths”

    * An easy way to understand the math involved in astronomy

    Simple enough for a beginner but comprehensive enough for an advanced student, Astronomy Demystified is your short cut to understanding the heavens.
