Book Description
The second edition of Engineering Drawing continues to cover all the fundamental topics of the field, while maintaining its unique focus on the logic behind each concept and method. Based on extensive market research and reviews of the first edition, this edition includes a new chapter on scales, the latest version of AutoCAD, and new pedagogy. The coverage of topics has been made more clear and concise through over 300 solved examples and exercises, with new problems added to help students work progressively through them. Combining technical accuracy with readable explanations, this book will be invaluable to both firstyear undergraduate engineering students as well as those preparing for professional exams.
