5Great book that every ME needs
By Nathan VanDerNoot
Great book that every ME needs. Have referenced it many times after graduating. Imagine every one of your textbooks boiled down into 1 book and this would be it!

5I wouldn't be without it
By EngineEar
This is an important and useful reference manual for people in many fields. Of course, the lead time required for assembling, publishing, and distributing it means that it can't possibly be up to the minute, but it's still very useful for items out of your usual field. The information, explanations, charts, graphs, and references will keep you from being totally lost. Even a high school dropout can benefit from this book, just not quite as much as a graduate mechanical engineer. It is divided into twenty sections that cover everything from Mathematics to Emerging Technologies with rather a lot of Physics in between.

5Great Tool
By Yvette Ruiz
Bought this for my son who is majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Math in college. He even said that his friend, who is majoring in Physics would be able to use it. My boss who majored in Mechanical Engineering in the 1950's still has his original Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers edition that he used while in college as well as during his career in the Investment Casting Industry. I'm sure that this will be a book that my son will reference many times, both while in school and throughout his career.
