Very clear writing/explanations, use of intuitive notation, problems gradually get tougher at a reasonable rate. Although my area is more in control systems, this MSE book has been really interesting. I'd take another course in it if I had time.
Book definitely assumes you have the prerequisites though -- some of the math can get tricky, but's all reasonable for an undergrad. Excellent colors/visually appealing. I think MSE is a very visual subject, and since I'm not a visual person, it really helps to see what's going on with clear diagrams/pictures.
My professor said this is a classic MSE book and I can see why. Two thumbs up.
Depending on your professor, it will depend on how much you use it; personally, this is one of the few textbooks that I have used for homework and studying for tests. It was surprisingly useful.
My only complaint is that the binding has been falling apart since I got the book in Agust, so I need to be very careful with the book.
