4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction to the Topic of Petroleum Refining
My boss at work gave me this book in an effort to get me up to speed on the industries we monitor.Having absolutely no background in oil and natural gas (beyond some general remarks dropped here and there in my undergraduate engineering curriculum), I found the text to be very informative, albeit in a non-technical way.Potential readers of this text should note that the information is highly focused- the author only covers refining of petroleum, and not other topics of interest, such as oil field exploration and development or petrochemicals manufacturing.
3-0 out of 5 stars Overrated
Recommended this to students but they found too much bad information. Maybe nontechnical means not worried about details being correct.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for a novice
I needed a quick read and overview of the basics of refining.This book was both easy to read and comphrehensive for the non-energy professional.If you want to learn about refining, this is a great place to start. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, full of examples, easy to follow
This book is one of the best, most thorough and well explained textbooks I have encountered in the past 5 years of school.The authors, one of whom is teaching my course, present their explanations in a way that is both thorough and accessible.This is not a cookbook by any means - it is a very solid, detailed foundation for power electronics, and doesn't gloss over the important concepts like other books in the field.If you're just looking for a reference book with equations, circuits, and tables, this isn't for you.However, if you're looking for a text to study and understand in detail, you'll be right at home.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of information with some open ended information
I would agree with the other reviewer that this is not a "how to" book. The book approaches the subject from an academic viewpoint. The reader is expected to fill in between the lines with previous experience. It appears that the authors, professors as U of C, supplement the text with worked out examples for their students. I would recomend it to people already versed in the subject and want more information.I found it for half price and this makes it worth buying as a reference. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars this books is acutally really bad and some of the people who commented here are phonies who work with Michael Lindeburg.
The book goes way over board with the material.There is such a thing as studying too little and studying too much.They are both bad.This book goes into too much detail.The actual exam is alot easier. True the gimick is "guranteed to make you pass or your money back!" but the truth is, this books covers absolutely everything and the normal person can't remember all that detail. To top it off, I read reviews here and if you noticed they're like advertisements. Good Job Michael Lindeburg for your marketing efforts too bad i'm not stupid enough for fall for your tricks. Also, Michael Lindeburg's associates wrote phony reviews to other Review Books. This dude is bad news and plays dirty. Don't buy any of his stuff. I seriously regret wasting my money on this book. And I'm for real cause I'm not mentioning another book, in fact I suggest any other book besides a Michael Lindeburg. Also, I have talked about this book with my classmates and they all feel the same way as me.
1-0 out of 5 stars I am still waiting.....
I ordered this book on July 17, 2006 from Amazon. It has not been shipped yet. I have no clue when I am going to get it. Get your act together Amazon.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good review book
Very comprehensive review manual.Mostly consists of sample problems with solutions.If you have never studied some of the subjects, you will need other reference material than just this manual to understand them.It's a good book, but just don't expect it to be the only reference that you will need to prepare for the FE exam. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars There are better options
I own several books on Control Systems (including this one), but if you have to buy just one and you are in the process of choosing it, I would recommend Katsuhiko Ogata's Modern Control Engineering.
1-0 out of 5 stars Sucks
Well first off the book does not do a good job of providing sufficient examples on how to do things. On top of that the solution manual you can get online through those 2 ppl that are selling it is useless. It has all the problems worked out wrong...just my luck!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Sections on PID and Multivariable
As a practicing engineer, I found the book's sections on PID controllers and Multivariable control to be more informative than my other references, including the venerable Ogata.

The preface of this book starts with a quote:
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for Image Processing
This book feeds the readers all the basic concepts of Image Processing. Very easily understandable and lucid in explanations. I would rate it one among the best EE books published so far.

4-0 out of 5 stars OK book for 1st or 2nd year undergrads
I am giving this book 4 stars because it's quite descriptive and easy to follow.It covers some of the basic concepts behind digital image analysis and touches on the more general signal processing concepts, but it doesn't go very deep into the actual math.This may be what you want, but for me it was an assigned text for a 4th year undergrad course I took in college, and I found it inadequate.I felt like I could have written this book before I even started the class.At the same time, though, I think it would have been a great text for a more entry-level course.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Step-by-Step Guide on Professional Techniques and "tricks of the trade

5-0 out of 5 stars So far so good - Updated
After buying the Black and Decker Home Wiring guide and finding conflicting information, I decided I needed a more thorough reference (but didn't want to have to decipher the NEC).After a bit of research, I decided to buy "Electrical Wiring Residential".Within the first hour of reading it, I had two major questions answered that the B&D book didn't even attempt to address.While I've only had it for a day, I'm already 100% more satisfied with it than I was with the B&D book.My advice: buy this book instead of the less expensive ones if you paln on doing your own wiring and want it to be to code.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best reference for teaching I've ever used
I teach NEC articles dealing with low-voltage issues and grounding to custom electronics installers.This is by far the best book I have ever used as a reference and I've seen a lot! The text is very clear, the illustrations are amazingly good.I have spoken with Ray Mullin the auther on many occassions and am always impressed with not only his knowledge but on the TLC (tender loving care) he puts into each edition. You can't go wrong with this reference. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Nontechnical Guide to Petroleum Geology, Exploration, Drilling and Production (2nd Edition)
I am a new Environmental Planner to the oil and gas industry, this book has been an integral part of my learning process. Easy to read and quite thorough- I am very satisfied and haven't found the need for another book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy as pie.
The nontechnical guide arrived in the mail in the speedy fashion typical of Amazon.I ripped into the packaging, withdrawing my hardbound book on Petroleum knowledge.I quicklyflew threw the pages of the book, noting how the information was presented.Well organized according to subject, ie Geology, exploration, Drilling and Production,each one of these areas of the oil industry was explained in simple, easy to understand language, and would allow this book to be used as a class room text.There were many pictures, diagrams and drawn out explanations about the subject being explained.The material presented information in a specific area and in a manner that was easy to absorb, find again and use.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very informative book - a must have for the Petroleum industry
We purchased this book to supplement some internal training for our company. It is the most comprehensive book on the subject that I have found, and we did a lot of research. We will be using it for a pre-requisite to a geology course for all of our new employees.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn from other people and other companies mistakes
Learning from other people and other companies mistakes is better than to gain experience through our own mistakes, especially if those are relate to safety.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Master Class In Hazard Avoidance And Mitigation
"What Went Wrong?" is a well thought-out book on practical safety in the chemical processing industry. The book recounts numerous actual process plant accidents and incidents, includes causes and effects, and avoidance and mitigation practices.
5-0 out of 5 stars Itemized Case History of Accidents in the Chemical Industry
What I like most about this book is its index and table of contents. It is easy to find a type of accident. For example, when I turned to page 291, I found an exact, simple description of the dangers resulting from the flow of a non-conducting liquid, i.e., one with a low dielectric constant --- like toluene (2.4 compared to water with a constant of 80). "The danger is that a spark could discharge between a body of liquid and grounded metal." In other words, a high voltage shock will knock you off your feet.

4-0 out of 5 stars The book is easy to understand.
I am a computer science student (well, recent graduate), and am looking to sell similiar books.I used both this book and the Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday/Resnick/Walker.Frankly, I thought this book was very easy to understand (much more than Halliday/Resnick/Walker).I'm not sure how you could want to be a mechanical engineer but not do well with this book.I thought they made it very easy to understand and perhaps spent too much time re-explaining what was covered in a earlier chapters but you can easily skip those parts.A slightly more challenging book was the one by Halliday/Resnick/Walker because it relied more on calculus (at least my professor did) but it too was fairly obvious.I recommend either book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Knight's Physics Volume 1-4
My first two semesters were devoted to going throughKnight's Physis's program course. The course is an attempt to provide the answer to the question: "How do you provide a physics education to a class body of 240+ students."Comparatively the textbooks were considered to be average.I would agree with the other reviewers that they tended to be "wordy" and the conceptual explanations were lacking.Many authors stress that learning physics can only be accomplished by working problems.A lot of the example problems lacked a clear explanation. I had a routine habit of referring to Serway Physic (3rd. Edition) to get a better understanding of the problems.The twice a week "online" problem assignments were extremely tedious and much of the time was devoted to the frustrations ofinputing answerson the website's graphical user interface.I provided responses to many problems and never received a word from Knight's online program representatives.Ifelt that a lot of valuable learning time was wasted with incorrect alphanumeric symbolic input.Students alway had complaints about the connection between the online problems and tests.
1-0 out of 5 stars Resnick and Halliday is much better
I had myself learnt Physics from Resnick and Halliday which I found to be a lot more to the point. ... Read more

Still I feel that, after reading this book one must switch to EITHER the book by Proakis and Manolakis OR the book by Oppenheim for more thorough knowledge. The knowledge gained from Prof Lathi's book makes others easy to comprehend. I would strongly recommend this book to any novice in Signal Processing domain.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mathematically rigorous but explaining physical significance
This book clearly explains the physical significance of many phenomenon and topics that we come across in this subject. The most striking feature is that it does so from the fundamental linear differential equation and gives us very good insight of the subject and a sense of completeness . Definitely its better than Oppenheim book which deals the subject a bit more mathematical.

3-0 out of 5 stars Better to get Oppenheim Schafer Buck
The Lathi book is fine, and covers both continuous and discrete signals, but is a little hard to read at times.A better book that covers both is the one by Oppenheim & Willsky.And if you want a much better book for the discrete side of things then get Discrete-Time Signal Processingby Oppenheim, Schafer, & Buck.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a handbook
I would NOT recommend this book to any electrician, engineer, or architect.It is extremely difficult to comprehend.Gaining any practical information from this book is futile. I have had the twelfth edition over ten years. I used it to study for the electricians exam.I hated it then.Since that time, I have found it to be a very poor reference book. The thirteenth edition is no better.I understand why some electrician training schools might use this book - it is very comprehensive. It would make a good reference for a classroom lesson plan, but not a direct teaching tool.If you want to learn the material in this book, get the National Electric Code Handbook (and related materials published by the NFPA) and appropriate textbooks. FYI - I am a licensed electrician and a registered professional engineer.

2-0 out of 5 stars A patchwork monster
Another motley McGraw-Hill product. First copyrighted in 1913. The author appears to have died prior to 1976, and the book has been maintained by hired help. Don't try to use this as a textbook; treat it as a reference only. You never really know whether some item is up to date or 50 or 80 years old. Examples: There is a lot of treatment of two-phase (yup, 90 degrees) power, including at 25 hertz, and of multi-kilovolt series incandescent streetlighting, plus knob and tube wiring. Also, it is stated that the highest radio frequency in use is 30 megahertz, whereas in reality we're up to 1,000 or 2,000 times that just now. This book is a curiousity; charming if you have the cash, but if you don't, maybe you should be getting something more coherent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Toyota Magic
"Toyota Production System: Beyond Large-Scale Production" is a very enlightening work by the inventor of lean manufacturing, Taiichi Ohno. This small book is packed with insights and ideas on how to efficiently and effectively run a production system. The Toyota Production is also known as lean manufacturing, entails, among other things, minimising waste through continuous improvement and producing only what is sold, as requested by the customer. This unique and innovative system explains why Toyota makes profits even in tough times when other competitor firms are losing money.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not good as a textbook at all
Mathematics is charming and fun to read, only if it is presented in a thought-invoking way, as we see in the old-style classical math books. Sadly, the line has been broken here. In this book, the rich materials, since the book tries to encompass everything, were presented in a terribly dry and desperate way. The world is already full of miseries, so my friend, be nice to yourself and don't use this book as a textbook. Perhaps it better serves as a reference book, as some previous reviewer already pointed out.

4-0 out of 5 stars A book with deep insight in Math for UG students...
The first time I came across this book was when I was appointed Teaching Assistant for a course called "Biomathematics" at IIT. At first, I was bit scared looking at the size of this book. As days progressed, I realized the very deep insight it gives for the UG engg students. The practical illustrations complementing the concepts are the highlights of this book.
