## Book Reviews

#### Jaco645Kirbyman645

This is a great book, but it's very complex. Still, if you have trouble converting measurements, this is for you! Plus, it's free! So what if you may not like it?! You won't regret anything!45

Drop out of engineering school. Read this book cover to cover, and you're good to go.55

#### Missing the middleczuck

For what it is, it is fine. I base my review on the electricity portion which was based initially very high, then went low, then back to a high level of required knowledge. For instance, calculus based formula for the voltage potential difference, then to ohms law, then the voltage calculations for a capacitive reactance situation WITHOUT providing the simple calculation for capacitive reactance. Good intent, weak delivery.25

#### That example on the coin tosssusiech

to collect bits and some of the other writing is a nice surprise in a book like this.55

#### Complete and Incredibly OrganizedThomas Bradley

I love this mini encyclopedia. I'm a college student and this really comes in handy. Every unit is very easy to find and the book contains not only conversions, but also explanations for each unit. I've always wanted to know what a furlong is.55

#### Good bookSosothea

This book is such a important to all maths student and also engineering. It shows all the conversion and formula.55

#### AwesomeChuck norris like

Great resource!!!!!!55

This book comes in real handy. As a instructor of the hvac trade the book makes conversions a breeze if you need to write out a formula. Thanks!55
