This book might be a good reference, but it is not a good study guide. The diagrams and drawings were rarely labeled descriptively. When sections and elevations were labeled as sections or elevations, they neglected telling you which elevation or where the section was taken. There were NUMEROUS calculation examples, but they rarely explained what the original equation meant or where they got the variables they plugged into them.
