    One of the best references!! Review by Amazon Customer
    I found in this reference most of what I need in my work and I used this as reference to refresh my mind about the old school staff (Posted on 2/8/2018)

    4 years of college in 1 book Review by Amazon Customer
    Where was this book when I was in college?! It has just enough information that you can he effective in almost any field related to mechanical engineering.

    I brought only this book and a calculator to the PE exam for mechanical engineering and passed just fine on my first attempt. The only studying I did was the practice exam using this book and a couple hours to get used to the book. I have to laugh at the poor bastards that brought dollies to transport their milk crates full of books. (Posted on 2/8/2018)
