Dear colleagues,

My new book "Learn Aspen Plus in 24 Hours" (ISBN 978-1-260-11645-8, $60, 
208pp) is now available for preorder through McGraw-Hill with a release 
date of August 25, 2017. The book, made in partnership with the CAChE Corp, 
was made after CAChE identified a need for better educational materials for 
teaching Aspen Plus in chemical engineering. 

Key Points:

* Consists of twelve, 2-hour tutorials that take a student from no prior 
experience to advanced problem solving skills.

* Developed over a seven year period with the feedback from students and 
professors at McMaster University, Auburn University, North Carolina State 
University, Northwestern University, and West Virginia University

* The book is not a user guide or reference manual. It is an experiential 
learning tool designed to teach critical thinking, problem solving, and 
troubleshooting skills while teaching how to use the software.

* Excellent for process design and/or flowsheet simulation type courses

* Can be used piecemeal over the duration of the chemical engineering 
curriculum, such that some chapters could be used in mass & energy 
balances, heat transfer, separations, reactions, and other courses.

For more information about the book, including pre-ordering information, 
specific advice on how to integrate the book into your courses, and  
workshop materials developed for the ASEE summer school, see:
