Book was a great gift for student engineer.

Used this during the PE exam and also as a routine reference book as an engineer at a power plant.

The book is a replacement for an old dogeared earlier edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Marks' is legend among reference handbooks for engineering and for good reason, the book combines excellent commentary from industry and academic experts with plenty of formulas, tables and diagrams. It lists the references for each section right at the beginning along with the authors which is convenient if you want to dig deeper into the knowledge area.

Mechanical Engineering is a very wide area and while you study many topics in school, unless you actively use them professionally your knowledge gets fuzzy. For this reason having a handbook like this one is a great way to refresh your memory or learn about topics you haven't spent much time with before going on to more specific books on the topic. I still find it amazing how much information is squeezed into each section and readers will see that the knowledge density is staggering.

It is because of Marks' section on Welding that I learned about, and subsequently purchased, the excellent books on Welded Structures and Weldment Design from Lincoln Electric written by Omer Blodgett. I would have never run across these books in a store and despite being written in the 1960s, and mentioning slide rules, they contain a wealth of practical knowledge about welded steel structures still relevant today. You just can do the calculations on a computer and skip the nomograms these days, though I still like the nomograms ability to build your intuition of how a result will end up.

I can be confident from following that chain of references that other areas of Marks' would lead to similar quality references should I need them, and that is why this handbook is worth its weight in gold.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The best overall engineering book I've bought. Not extremely detailed but it covers everything. 5 years of college collected in one easy to read and understand, albeit heavy, book. I'm an electromechanical design engineer and this book covers all the little details that my college textbooks do and I don't have to carry 6 books with me. For the price it's the best book I own and use it for reference constantly at work. Hard to do better in my opinion.

Makes a great reference book to cover my 15 or so other engineering books. It could use more detailed coverage of some topics. If you're looking for something to replace a collection of books you'll have to look elsewhere, doesn't cover any design techniques or in depth analysis, at least not for what I do. It's more aimed at manufacturing or industrial engineers than mechanical or design. Still a great purchase for the money and extremely handy.

I recently purchased this book through my employer as a one-stop reference book. The problem with this is that there is so much information contained in the book that each topic only gets a the most brief, high level overview. The index is good but I have never found this book to be a "quick" reference per se. In many cases Google is a better (and faster) way to find what I am looking for.

Very useful book. Better than a stack of old college textbooks. Used this during the PE exam and also as a routine reference book as an engineer at a power plant. Worth the money.

Unlike some of the reviewers, I have not had buyer's remorse (yet). I don't use Mark's Handbook a lot, but it has been providing the answers to my questions when I've looked for them. Good index. I would also recommend you take a look at the Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam, by Mike Lindeburg.

I won't give it five stars because it starts out great the first few chapters and then goes into much detail on subjects that aren't covered on the FE or PE Exam. For the price it is a great deal and I would say to add it to your reference library because you will need other books for PE study like Shigley and Mischke ME Design (Red Book), Drafting/CAD reference books, etc.

The book is a replacement for an old dogeared earlier edition. It arrived in great condition though it is used. Useful book for a facilities engineer.

What a great reference for Engineers and Technicians, or anyone wanting to know how things work, and how things are specified.
