I recently took (and passed) the Certified Broadcast Technologist exam with the Society of Broadcast Engineers. Since I have limited resources, and would rather hold out a short while for the 11th edition to be released, I checked out this book from my local university library to use for a study tool. I took this book in with me when I took the CBT exam (most SBE exams are open book). This book proved absolutely invaluable in my preparation for the CBT exam and while taking the actual exam. Highly recommended for any engineer's reference shelf!

Format: Hardcover
If you're in the technical side of broadcasting, this handbook should be considered as a core text for your library. It's probably the most comprehensive, up to date, and technically accurate handbook that you can buy. Only authors with a proven track record and many years of experience are invited by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) to be authors, and those submissions are peer-reviewed before being finalized.

The only down sides are first that it's heavy (if you drop it on your foot you will probably be crippled for life) and second it's not printed in color; however, the handbook comes with a CD that includes colored versions of figures and tables where the contributing authors' figures/tables were in color.

Purchasing this handbook should be a no-brainer decision if you work in broadcasting or broadcast-related technical fields. It's a valuable reference tool.

SO the quality of the book and packaging is without comparison. The product is exactly as I expected it to be. AN engineering manual written dull as dull can be... However the enclosed CD ROM is as useless as can be. I did contact the publisher and they did email me a link to a PDF of the book but it is not as searchable as I would like.
