#### Review: Chemical Process Control: An Introduction to Theory and Practice

User Review - Ahmad Ashkaibi - GoodreadsThis was our textbook back in college. It was fair good but not well-arranged. The examples it provides is merely vague and lack a lot of important details. It's although a comprehensive book about process control and it's very good for advanced courses.. Read full review
