Review:

The book is written by a biomedical engineer who has first-hand experience with the challenges of becoming an engineer. The book explains what an engineer is and how a student can prepare in high school to meet the rigors of a college engineering program.

This book presents the study of engineering as an opportunity available to everyone. Many students believe that only the most gifted students can become engineers, but the author handily dispels that notion. The author encourages women and minorities, who have the lowest representation in the engineering profession, to consider a career in engineering.

For the non-mainstream student, suggestions are offered on alternatives to the traditional college approach by joining the military or peace corps. This book is an excellent resource for a high school career counselor or any student interested in becoming an engineer. --The Science Teacher Magazine
