Designed to provide a complete and customized learning experience for each reader, this edition of our popular Interpreting Engineering Drawings book now features expanded units on "Drawings for Numerical Control" and "Manufacturing Materials." The first section acquaints readers with topics that are universally applicable to the interpretation of all mechanical/industrial drawings, such as: drawing standards, abbreviations, basic rules for dimensioning, reading and measuring with US inch and SI metric scales, plus different types of sectional views. Subsequent units enable readers to gain valuable experience interpreting more specialized engineering drawings, including pipe drawings, structural steel shapes, welds, gear trains, and more. Hands-on assignments at the end of each short, concise unit offer opportunities to put new knowledge into practice, enabling readers to gain confidence as they develop their print reading skills.

Cecil H. Jensen took an early retirement from teaching to devote his full time to technical writing. He held the position of Technical Director at the McLaughlin Collegiate and Vocational Institute, Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, and has more than twenty-seven years of teaching experience in mechanical drafting. He was an active member of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Committee on Technical Drawings. Mr. Jensen has represented Canada at international (ISO) conferences on engineering drawing standards, which took place in Oslo, Norway and Paris, France. He also represented Canada on the ANSI Y14.5M Committee on Dimensioning and Tolerancing. He is the successful author of numerous texts including Engineering Drawing and Design, Fundamentals of Engineering Drawing, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing for Engineering and Manufacturing Technology, Computer-Aided Engineering Drawing, and Home Planning and Design. Before he began teaching, Mr. Jensen spent several years in industrial design. He also supervised the evening courses in Oshawa and was responsible for teaching selected courses for General Motors Corporation apprentices.
