4.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful read. January 29, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Going thru it right now. There is so much information packed in there that I need to dissect it in small chunks which the book is set up well for. If your going into this field- it is an excellent primer.

4.0 out of 5 stars this saved my sanity!!! January 30, 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am currently taking an instrumentation class from a "teacher" who isn't very qualified to teach this subject to beginners. I was flipping out and so close to crying over not being able to understand the material. I found this book and it is amazing! Prekeges explains the most important concepts of instrumentation simply and clearly. She covers all the basics that are very important to know for the board exams and for the tech job. There are graphics and tables to help explain the concepts. The format is simple and direct to the point. She doesn't add any superfluous fluff that a normal textbook would. It is organized clearly also into short chapters and categories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent explanation of Nuclear instrumentation. December 1, 2012
By Abuyer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought for board re-certification examination. My nuclear technologist saw the book and is already planning to buy one. My first real understanding of nuclear instruments, even after years of working with them. Has a very practical approach to instruments, clarifying difficult concepts. Great source for preparation for certification test. Instead of just remembering facts, gave a true understanding the equipment for the test and for daily use of the instruments.
