cover Engineering Mathematics - This book has been going for a long time and it is now in its 5th edition, so it is tried and tested.

 

cover Div, Grad, Curl and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus

 

cover us uk de jp fr ca Schaum's Outline of Theory and Problems of Tensor Calculus - I'm finding this hard going, it starts off with as review of linear algebra, matrix notation, etc. It redefines a lot of conventions which are hard to relearn, such as superscrips instead of subscripts to identify elements, and a summation convention, then it goes into coordinate transformations. I cant find any definition of what a tensor is. I think this book is aimed at people who already have some knowledge of the subject.
