Great purchase, cheapest price for a brand new textbook, it was cheaper than buying it used from the other sources. Only took a week and 2 days from order to my door. Thanks!

MEEB is my Boyfriend June 19 2013
By Aeuu - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
MEEB, I've spent so many nights staring into your soul.
Trying to make sense of your dense graphs.
Trying to find the water and air paths.
You've been there for me, you learning tool.
In the end we have to part.
You must know that It's me not you.
For you are truly a work of art.
The most exciting and boringest book I ever knew.

More then the title suggests April 10 2010
By W. Frazier - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been referencing past editions of this book for years. It's the bible to architects for understanding this subject matter. It covers more then the title suggests including overall design strategy for site and building, passive design for the building environment, acoustics, illumination and day-lighting, water conservations systems, vertical building transportation systems and design, fire protection and suppression design, along with the active mechanical and electrical systems design and equipment technology that the title suggests. It is one of the core reference books for the architect's library and others related to building construction. This new addition updates to the latest technology, and sustainable design practices. Another great book for passive design related to building arrangement and form is Sun, Wind & Light: Architectural Design Strategies, 2nd Edition

Good execution, appendicies & tables need some work Jan. 27 2012
By MAddison - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this as a Kindle edition for an architecture class so I wouldn't have to break my back carrying the actual book to and from, and the chapters read just fine. All the illustrations in the chapters are linked in the text, so you can click and see what you're reading about, then immediately go back, so that's convenient.

Some of the reference tables in the appendices are hard to get to in the digital copy. Once you're on the page and table you want, you can tap the down arrow in the bottom middle of the table itself to scroll down and see all the tables, or you can go to "Location" and type in your current number+1 to get to the first table. Afterwards, you can page through all of them in that section. But it's not exactly straightforward. Some of the tables were scanned in sideways, so that makes it a little interesting if your Kindle rotates the screen depending on its orientation.

If you're planning to actually use this and not just read what's in the chapters, be super aware of how to navigate the illustrations and tables, otherwise it might cause you a bit of frustration. But I just said how to do it, so you should be good :)

ARE must read June 28 2013
By Jennifer Givens - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
this book is essential for passing the BD-CS portion of the ARE. i read the entire thing -- all 3" -- and although it took forever (2 months) and felt like information overload at the time, i was very prepared for the difficult electrical and mechanical process questions that the ARE exam threw at me. i had 3 years of internship experience at age 28, post college. i passed the exam first time -- along with all the other ARE exams the first time around -- and am now licensed in Alabama. take it from me, this is a very eye-opening read and definitely worth the time. also, this book is referred to as the "MEEB" book on all the archi user websites.

Awesome Step-Stool! Jan. 22 2014
By CosbySweater45 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When not using MEEB as a paperweight I found its high density and 6 inch depth was more practical for getting things off the top shelf than my previous solution (Webster's dictionary). In addition it gave me a great workout lugging it back and forth from class, and the hundred+ dollars I spent on it prevented me from buying groceries the following two weeks, What a Great Diet plan!!!

But seriously if they could just make this an E-book that would be great.
