YA If the nation is concerned about the quality of science and engineering education, books such as this should be added to every library serving adolescents. An update of a 1980 effort, this volume contains over 6000 new entries in a total of 20,000 that include acronyms, telecommunications codes, mathematical equations, and military terminology. The alphabetical listing and terse but instructional introduction make this a valuable volume both for general science students confused about terms used in the newspaper and AP physics students with projects. Essential for libraries serving students in strong science programs. Dorcas Hand, Episcopal High School, Bellaire
