The book itself is great, an excellent resource, and I would gladly rate it 5 stars. Unfortunately, I got the kindle edition, which is almost useless as a test book. The vast majority of figures, especially after chapter 5, are thumbnails only, and many of the figures that are "full sized" are scanned in at such poor resolution that zooming in is not possible, making completion of assignments near impossible.If you want the e-book version, I highly recommend getting it from Google.

I thought this book would be a guide for design and be more of a theoretical lesson manual. Instead it is more of a guide from a drafting perspective. I was looking for a book that would have more symbols and guidelines for design piping systems. This book does have clear illustrations and insight into how the parts should interact.

this was an excellent buy for an introduction to Process pie drafting. although its a little dated it is still very practical and relevant! i highly recommend this book for anyone learning about pipework on an industrial scale!

This book is best for people getting into piping CAD and beginning process piping designers. This is still good for experience designers as a reference book.

there are some small errors on the flow charts and diagrams. if you pay attention you'll catch them, but overall a very helpful book.

Great book, very informative and useful for Pipe Designers/Drafters.


good reference book.
