Product Description

From the Back Cover

Metric Units and Conversion Charts A Metrication Handbook for Engineers, Technologists, and Scientists Second Edition Why waste your valuable time hunting for conversion factors, symbols, and units? With this handbook, you can convert from one measurement system to any other by means of 62 conversion charts covering almost every field of science. The charts are based on values published by the foremost authoritative sources such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE). The charts are universal, and so conversions can be made quickly and confidently. This much-expanded second edition has the following features:The charts make a clear distinction between SI and other metric units by identifying SI units by red boxes. Official symbols of all SI units are given, along with the name of the unit. The recommended symbols for quantities are shown at the top of each chart. A new chapter on mass, force and gravity explains how the units of force were established. For introductory courses, chapters are included explaining quantity equations and numerical equations, together with worked-out examples. For classroom work, over 100 review questions, together with answers. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Someone recommend that I use this book to study for the CRNE. I bought it and also used it as a study book for 4th year BScN. I totally recommend this book and told my close classmates who used this to study and all passed. Remember to buy 2nd edition which has more information to study and read. Kept me from reading all my textbooks for the exam.

Handy and interesting book for Engineers of all disciplines. Although one can find resources on the web for free that do the same thing, the book is sometimes better because it shows the step by step conversion process in a way that allows a person to be more confident than a "black box" number.

Disappointing June 26 2014
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used to work with metric system and imperial units just drive me crazy especially if the units itself are more complex (lbf, MGD and so on). So this book made the conversion process even messier. This product is clear http://www.amazon.com/Engineering-Unit-Conversions-Michael-Lindeburg/dp/159126099X/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1403800763&sr=1-2&keywords=units+conversion+charts it shows exactly what you need multiply to convert units.
Pretty good book March 15 2012

This is a pretty good book, I can't say great or awesome or anything yet only because I'm pretty new at engineering and still a student. It's kinda confusing for me with the lines and all that they use to show relationships and conversions but again, I'm pretty new at this and am sure that it'll get easier as I progress in school. All in all, I like the book, it got to me fairly quick and it is in good condition. I would recommend the book to other aspiring engineers:-)
