Editorial Reviews

Review
From review by: M. T. Kochis, California State University, Sacramento

This dictionary focuses broadly on electrical, computer, and electronics engineering and touches on related areas such as mathematics and communications. It arranges headwords alphabetically and precedes each term with an abbreviation for its field, which helps place terms in context, e.g., "electromag" for electromagnetism. The approximately 18,000 terms are taken from McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms (6th ed., CH, Mar'03), a much larger dictionary (110,000 terms) that covers both natural and applied sciences. Since most libraries these days cannot afford to duplicate content, academic and public libraries will want the more comprehensive dictionary...Practicing engineers could benefit from the present dictionary because of its tighter focus and lengthy appendixes...

5Great resource
By L Clark
Contains the definitions and spellings I need to reference. Inexpensive compared to other offerings too. Tiny font size, but then it packs a lot of info into a small, thick volume.
