1.0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money For A Class Oct. 19 2010
By Hungry For Knowledge - Published on
Format: Paperback
There are questions at the end of the chapters but no answer key. After a couple of emails and a 20 minute phone call (17 of those minutes being on hold), the company refuses to sell the "teacher's addition" unless the person is an instructor.

Since there is no way to check the answers on your own, there is no way to tell if you have made mistakes that will last a lifetime.

Save your money for a class instead and learn the right way the first time.

This book works well for training in our industrial setting. There are several errors in the book that must be explained to our students. Great for people with some blueprint exposure

I liked it. Needed it for a blueprint class. A few typos/mistakes, but all in all, it's a good book for basic stuff.
