This book is littered with mistakes, both in the text, and in the answers to questions. This is entirely unacceptable for a 5th Edition book.
Another of Bolton's books - Higher Engineering Science - has exactly the same problem.

I bought this book in order to re-visit, out of interest, the subjects that I covered in my HNC (Electronics) 1955-60. To my surprise, I found, on dipping into various sections, that it is full of errors in the formulae, the diagrams, and even in the arithmetic shown in the solutions to problems. I have the knowledge to spot these errors in the electronics and mechanical; engineering sections but not in the other sections, so there is no point in reading them as I can only assume that the same pattern of errors exists in those too.
A textbook should be a reliable reference work, otherwise it is totally unfit for purpose, as in this case. I am amazed that it has survived several reprints without, apparently, these problems having been addressed. It is such a shame that such a well-presented, and potentially useful book should be unusable.
I have contacted the publishers and pointed out the errors, but their response was to say that they no longer support this publication. If Amazon reads these reviews, may I respectfully state that it should be withdrawn from sale and refunds given where appropriate..

Used for my HNC in Engineering course and it worked a treat, I would recommend this book to any budding engineers and it is great for adding to the depth of knowledge gained during the courses.
