5Good reference but tough reading.
By Brian Mccusker
Just like most engineering and architecture text books, it's drier than Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl. However, it was worth having as a good reference as I am studying for the CAD drafting teacher exam on the side. This was one of the books on the list that material is taken from. Highly recommend for the shelf at work anyways.
