Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The eBook copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


This book offers students a simple, logical, easy-to-understand path to reading and understanding the drawings that are most commonly found in the welding and fabrication industries. Each chapter clearly presents objectives and key terms, and offers practical exercises. Each chapter also provides a supplement with bite-size, easy-to-follow explanations of the mathematics that welders need in order to successfully interpret prints. Throughout, the author emphasizes the codes, standards, and industrial practices students will be most likely to encounter. Concepts and terminology from the American Welding Society (AWS) and The Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) are used throughout.
