5Handy & Portable
By Frank A. Stephenson
This reference book is to the engineering profession what "Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain"* is to strength of materials, only better; it's less than half the size. A goodly portion of the book is devoted to an unbelievably complete collection of chapters on mathematics which, as most engineers know, will come in extremely handy sooner or later. There is extensive information here on: statics; kinematics; dynamics; hydraulics; heat; strength; machine parts; production engineering; electrical engineering; and control engineering. There are even chapters on chemistry and radiation physics, units, solid bodies and areas. Prior to the Index, there are Tables and Tables of properties and values, just in case, say, you forgot the coefficient of expansion for molybdenum. Most (but not all) of the left-hand pages are blank; handy for jotting down notes. This is an excellent collection of technical data, formulae, and facts. It is always in my briefcase. I would not go to a meeting or to any on-site project without it.

5Good Book, Helped all through undergrad.
By Joey D.
I studied Electrical Engineering and will be graduating this year. This book was very useful throughout the entirety of my undergrad years. It is laid out very well and it is easy to find whatever information you might need. I will definitely keep this book on hand as move into my career, just in case I ever need it as a reference.

5Handy and Attractive Book
By E. Hernandez
This book includes all of the most standard and useful formulas from all of the major fields of Engineering, including Strength, Geometry, Mechanical, Heat, Kinematics, Electrical, and Chemical, as well as legends and tables of alphabetic symbols and discipline specific symbols and conversion charts. It is a true pocket or field reference in that it is a sturdy hard cover bound book not much larger than a large human hand palm and about 2.5 inches in thickness. I personally did not find the print to be too small for the naked eye, but after a long day or in the wrong light one might benefit from a magnifying glass to read through it without effort. I highly recommend it for anyone with interest in Engineering Formulas.
