I'm using this for my motor controls class. I was impressed with the information in this book, as well as how it's layout is. Also, if you have a QR reader, there are knowledge tests and other features which will pull up on your phone. They're located at the end of each chapter. Comes with a CD as well. For a used copy, I was surprised I got a CD which wasn't even touched (perforations on the plastic envelope are still untouched). Images, and text are clearly understandable for me (I'm a 6+YR Electronics/Electrical maintenance supervisor), and seem that it'd be great for a beginner. Chances are, if you're purchasing this book it's for a class, and I must say, It'd be worth buying it cheap and hanging onto it. A memory refresh is good once in a while.
Written in a format that can be understood and applied to field applications.Breaks down the different areas and components in an organized manner.Covers basic concepts, operations and schematics in straight forward, easy to understand terms.Gives real life applications and explains how it applies and functions.Good entry level as well as experienced field personnel.I only wish that there were other technical books written as well as this.Definitely a good investment and necessary reference addition to anyone's library that is working in the electrical field.
I havent finished the whole book yet, but so far so good. The interactive DVD is a great plus!!!Great for the price
The book is in perfect condition and the price was great in comparison. Lots and Lots of very useful info and I can't wait to use it in my Summer classes.
Book arrived in perfect condition and was packaged great. This is the book that is required by the class so didn't have a choice on "What motor book" to get but it has a lot a great information in the back and is written in a way that is very easy to understand.Now for the negative... Have been in class now and using the book for only 5 weeks. The binding is already falling apart and pages are coming out!!! No one else in class has been having this problem and yes I do treat my book very well because I keep them for references. I guess I must have just have gotten a bad one? Unfortunately I have already marked and highlighted through the chapters we covered so far I can't return it. Hopefully it makes it through the rest of the semester? I also need this book for "Motors-2" next semester. I'm not holding my breath that it'll last that long so I'll probably be in the market for a used one to replace or supplement this by then...If not for the construction, I would have absolutely given it 5 stars!!!
I like this book. It's a great refresher book and pretty decent to learn from
Great item for learning and continued education for the field.
Very happy with the purchase.
