Terrible, but often required by classes
By Z. Kummer
This is a terrible book required by two of my classes. Many of the images look like they have been poorly copied 14 times (at least) and are very hard to read. On numerous occasions the instructor had to give out dimensions for homework assignments because no one could figure out what the text in the book was saying, and some assignments were handed out copies from an earlier edition...the same drawings, just less crap because they had been copied fewer times. There are also more than a few incorrect pieces of information scattered through the book...not too bad for a first or second edition but really pathetic for a 14th edition. I realize the reason for making new editions is to force people to buy new books and stop using the old ones...but they could at least fix the errors that people email them about. The book is also extremely outdated; a huge portion of it is dedicated to drafting by hand...not to understanding old drawings, but to actually making them. I am actually a bit angry with my school for using this book...given how outdated it is an how much worse than the just-as-outdated previous editions it is, it would make a lot more sense to require the 10th edition or something.
Note: if you have a class that requires this book, check to see if you will need it again in future classes before deciding to rent it.

T-Square to 3D, Empirically tested.
By Amazon Customer
I have been using this reference since the Fourth Edition.
I am so impressed with how it still has such a familiarity to it, yet with such modern interpretations. I am equally impressed with how well the modern practices of todays 3D design concepts have been integrated with the techniques of an old T-Square like me. A real must have for any dedicated mechanical designer.

Explains most models and features used and transfers well to CAD design. Extensive book with very detailed drawings. I do NOT consider it a book for beginners, however it does cover what you'll need to know eventually. I've used it as a reference as my training progressed. It's worth having as it covers it all in-depth.
