HASH(0x9be19a98) out of 5 stars not fit to be a text book Feb. 26 2012
By John D. Covin Jr. - Published on
This book is a good example of a poorly done text book. The order of the book is wrong for the subject matter. Most chapters are poorly covered and there is a lot of material that seems to be just filler. I am sorry that my students were forced to spend their money on this text book. Try Machine Trades Print Reading for a better book.

This was the required text for my class and I found it confusing, I have worked using blueprints for many years and feel sorry for those students who have no background and this is their first experience.

Only bought this book used due to needed it for class. Unless you need it for class don't buy it. Found issues with blueprints dimensions.
