Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
For the price, it's not that good. I paid some $80+ for it about two years ago new, and it doesn't appear the price has gone down much. It's also a workbook, meaning little chance of finding it used and even less of resale.
Also, the answers in the instructor edition are absolutely LITTERED with mistakes as to assignment answers. We spent a good majority of the time questioning our instructor (who probably should have but didn't check the validity of the answers) when we would all have the same answer, and he would agree, yet something entirely different was left as the key. No lie, there was typically one incorrect answer per page, and at max I remember three on a single assignment.
I won't say the book is bad. It's really not. For independent study? Yes, it's terrible and couldn't recommend it if they paid me to. As part of classwork with decent instruction and an instructor that pays attention? Sure, but it still doesn't avoid the price tag.
It has many good questions for review at the end of each section, but does not have answers. There is a teacher's edition aviable that has answers, but I would not spend the money on it. During our review periods in class we found that many of the answers in the teacher's manual were incorrect. I'm not talking just a few either - there were a lot of errors. The authors really need to spend time reviewing the answer manual and updating it. All in all this book accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. It provides a good base of information about basic blueprint reading.
If your class requires this book, I would in no way advise buying it new. Buy it as cheaply used as you can and avoid the ridiculous $90 cost for new. I'm pretty angry that a workbook of this expense cannot be returned for it's flaws, as by the time you realize how bad it is you've already filled in most of the answers.
The 5-star reviews are doing a horrible disservice to potential buyers.
