"End of chapter hands-on projects are terrific. Not only do these activities have students physically making changes to machines, but it forces them to pay attention to choices that they and the users that they will support have to make." - Barbara Belon, Norwalk Community College
"The strengths of Chapter 1 are ease of reading and straightforward approach. The terms are well-defined, and the examples are great." - Keith Morneau, Capella University
