    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!

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

    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.

    This should be a grand resource, but the table of contents is illegible...
  • Complete and Incredibly Organized

    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.
  • Good book
