this is the most stupidest book and frustrating book ever. everything is out of order. how do they expected students to do this
This book is the worst blueprint book ever wrote. For example in Unit 5 review B, the first question does not even relate to the book till Unit 9. it must be nice to just sit around and write bull crap about stuff that A.E. Bennett and Louis J. Siy don't even know about. i teach welding at the local college and I want to know how is someone suppose to teach out of a book that is so incorrect.
Thomas E. Proctor (Author), Jonathan F. Gosse (Author) is probably the best book out there for anyone needing to learn how to read blueprints for welders.
