Worst book EVER!!! May 26 2012
By Lam T. Lam - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would not recommend this book for anyone that wants to learn how to read blueprints due to all the errors, your better off surfing the net for information. I got this book because it was required text book at a college. I already know how to read blueprint since I worked as a drafter to draw 1000's of components over my 8 years working in the field and required this class to get a degree, so this class should have been fairly easy. There is so many problem with this book to cover everything that is wrong with it. This book has content coverage issue and errors for:

1. Content is so badly written it is so hard to understand. Doing the question and answer at the end of each unit a shot in the dark if the reader understood the question correctly. When we ask our professor for help when the class couldn't understand he would give us an answer and check with the teachers book and got the answer wrong also. Afterward he confirm with the book before answering. Bad instructor, I don't believe so since his field of study was in architectural and that information isn't using in his field.

2. It didn't feel like the authors of this book know anything about blueprint and simply copy and paste general real life experience. When I came to parts of the book where I had experience in the field as ask to confirm my answer to the teacher edition since I couldn't find the answer in the unit. I was told that my answer base real life experience on the field was wrong.

3. I strongly believe as a student this book is teaching wrong information more then a book should if it was better researched to proof that the content was correct. The reason I believe this was because when our class went to units that covered our field of study machining and welding. We the student had to inform the instructor(architectural field) that information written was wrong and the students corrected the information covered for the students of the other field of study.

4. There were question to help cover key information that was cover in the unit asked that where not covered in the book at all or ask in the wrong unit for the book. Example unit 3 Bonus blueprint reading question asked about sub-assemble. Which the class know what that term meant but didn't understand what the book wanted for an answer(over 70% of the class got the answer wrong). The topic of sub-assemble was not cover till unit 16!!!! There was also question like Question 5. Refer to question 5 ...... are we to refer to the question that we are ask to find more data to answer what question 5 is asking. Is this something like which came first an egg or an egg?

If this book is any kind of measure of knowledge that was learned as a teaching tool it has completely FAILED. The AVG grade when the course was complete pass poor over 75% class would have failed the course if the 70% or higher was a C. The Course was graded on 30-50% was a D 51 to 70% was a C. Even still most of the class completed the course with a D or C. My grade was a C only due to the % grade curve drop for this class due and my only grade that was not an A in 2 years of full time study. The Class is full of licensed welder and CNC machinist but we can't even understand what is written in this book????!!!! Most of us need this class as our last course to get our degree, most of us are able to read blueprint and complete other course work that require reading blueprint but we can't read and understand this course to score so badly?

I use this book for my Print Reading Class. June 3 2014
By Arch Instructor - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am very surprised at the low rating this book has received. I have been using this book in my print reading class for the last three years. I feel that it is an excellent book and easy to use. As for the content in the book, I have not received any complaints from the 800+ students that have taken my class and have used this book. I especially like the large amount of prints that come with the book and the different types of assignments. Most units have a review question assignment, two practical assignments, and a bonus print reading activity. These bonus exercises are difficult and some of the answers in the teacher's edition may be open to interpretation but the prints that come with the book are from actual companies and do have errors (but that is real-life). I think that this gives a sense of realism for the student and will serve them well when they need to read prints on the job.
Not the Seller / Amazon's Fault. May 3 2014

Bought this book as a requirement for out Engineering Class at our local college.

Book is written very poorly in my experience. Many of the answers listed in the back of the book are not actually correct, so you may end up teaching yourself the wrong way and getting bad grades on the test. There is no excuse for this happening when it is the 9th edition of a book.

Write in text is helpful, Instructor's may ask for pages out of the book, etc. Pictures are good and prints DO COME WITH.
Helped me get through the class, could use refinement in techniques to teach and especially on the answers in the back that are supposed to help you.

All around, not seller's fault. Shipping was in time for the new quarter and was packaged brand new along with bonus prints. If required, good option. If you are buying to just learn how to become a mechanical engineer on your own time, look elsewhere.

The book wan't what it claimed to be. It said like brand new, but it wasn't. Pages were missing from the textbook.
