It is rated acceptable because p. 53 is almost detached. Pages are unmarked and in good shape. D. cQuiston is a registered professional engineer and a consultant toseveral system design and equipment manufacturing firms. He has written extensively onheating and air conditioning and is the coauthor of a basic fluidmechanics and heat transfer text.

You'll find the latest load calculation procedures, indoor air quality procedures, and issues related to ozone depletion. Also integrated throughout the text are numerous worked examples that clearly show you how to apply the concepts in realistic scenarios.

McQuiston joined the Oklahoma State faculty in 1962 after three years in industry. Jeffrey D. Spitler is a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Oklahoma State University, Stillwater. He was a National Science Foundation Faculty Fellow from 1967 to 1969. degrees in mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois, Urban-Champaign, in 1983, 1984, and 1990. He joined the Oklahoma State University faculty in 1990.

McQuiston, Faye C. Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning : analysis and design, Faye C. McQuiston, Jerald D. Parker, Jeffrey D. Spitler. 6th ed. p. cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. ISBN 0-471-47015-5 (cloth/CD-ROM : alk. paper) 1. Heating. Parker. The revision of this text continues to offer comprehensive treatment of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning concepts: All material is based on the updated ASHRAE Handbook and product criteria and uses both SI and English units. Practical, realistic problems are presented and the latest procedures and issues are covered.

Based on the most recent standards from ASHRAE, this clearly written book provides complete and up-to-date coverage of all aspects of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Readers will find the latest load calculation procedures, indoor air quality procedures, and issues related to ozone depletion. Also integrated throughout the book are numerous worked examples that clearly show you how to apply the concepts in realistic scenarios. A CD-ROM containing five computer programs is included to help with calculations and simulations.
  • Please, educators, DO NOT PICK THIS BOOK. I am currently attending my university for my Mechanical Engineering degree, and have a thermal systems class that uses this book. I am in shock that it was ever even published. Example problems consistently skip the exact new step the problem is supposed to show you, newly introduced variables are consistently NOT identified in the text and you just find them in example problems and have to reverse engineer what the mystery variables are, and many of the exercises at the back of every chapter do not give the student enough information to even decipher what the book is asking for. I am not simply a student looking to blame a bad book for a difficult time learning material, I PROMISE YOU this book has legitimate problems that have been constantly neglected. DO NOT USE THIS BOOK.

  • ...you could probably get a better HVAC book than this if you made the monkeys into gladiators and had an interpretive dance instructor record their combat movements as text. You could probably even skip the typewriters entirely and save yourself the maintenance costs. By far the worst textbook that I have owned throughout my mechanical engineering classes. Concepts are poorly explained and inconsistently detailed. Equations frequently fail to define any variables at all, or better yet include conversions within them to discourage the use of dimensionally homogeneous units. Sometimes variables are named and defined with functions, only to have the text inconspicuously declare a few pages later that a different variable will be used in its place henceforth. Some chapters provide multiple tables without fully defining what property the values actually are. Other chapters use tables that neglect to say what the data points even are until many pages later. Equations are occasionally outright wrong, such as "(1/E) - (1/e1) + (1/e2) - 1e", which can be found on page 132. Chapter six provides two tables for the conductance of air but fails to declare whether either of them is accounting for radiant, convective, or conductive heat. Diagrams and their corresponding text are frequently on entirely different pages. I got a 3.5 in both fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, and find myself referring to those textbooks far more often than I do this one.

    I would rather the world freeze to death for lack of heating than give another $180 to what I can only assume is a gang of clowns whos knowledge of the topic fails to extend beyond applying the ideal gas law to balloon animals.

  • This book has major discrepancies, simple mistakes and just does not do the material justice.

    This book was chosen as the text book for the first HVAC design course. Due to the distance to my university (roughly 60 miles), I do all of my work by myself between weekly classes. I have found obvious discrepancies in every single chapter. I am half way through chapter 6 and have had more trouble figuring out what's going on than any of my prior 36 college courses. This book does not label their units in examples, and they do not show where they came up with many of their numbers. The entire class agrees that 6 editions should be more than enough time to iron out any terrible obvious mistakes. This is apparently not true.

    To finish off this review I'd like to say the book says it comes with a CD containing programs discussed in the text. instead of a disk, it was packed with a slip of paper with a code on it. When the code was plugged in at Wiley's website, no access was granted. Not a single student was able to access the program.

    If you're looking for a good book to learn from, choose something else.

  • Thanks a lot . I received the book as the same as its description . It was awesome experience. Iwould definitely recommend it .

  • This book is equal in quality of content to edition 5 except that the version of edition 6 being sold here does not contain the CD normally included with this textbook. The publisher's web site states "New to this edition (edition 6) is the inclusion of additional realistic, interactive and in-depth examples on CD". This CD would also contain the software that was included with edition 5. According to the publisher's tech support however, the version of edition 6 being sold by Amazon.com is for use under the guidance of an instructor where apparently the material on the CD would not be needed. If this book is for personal use I recommend a version that includes the CD.

  • Great book, I like that is a smaller text book. I still use this as a reference from time to time. However there are a few table errors that you have to keep an eye out for.

  • Excellent Book! Very easy read. Highly recommend

  • There was talk from the professor/author that inferior copies, paperback and international versions were everywhere in the market, so care was advised when ordering. This was one of the least expensive used books I could find and was hard bound, current edition in excellent condition. Even had the code for the Wiley site inside. An impressive find. If it had come with a box of courtesy donuts, I would have given 5 stars.
