5.0 out of 5 stars An almost complete reference. 12 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very complete and useful reference work for anyone who deals with measurements. I have been able to find almost every term I have looked for in this book. Every measurement professional should be able to find a place on their working bookshelf for it. However, there is one glaring omission: the word "metrology" (the science of measurement) is NOT one of the entries in the book!
4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, but covers all the hard to find things 29 Jan 2012
By J. Reiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I use this dictionary to clear up with students in my class the hard to find words to do with measurements that they can't seem to grasp. This dictionary covers it all. Things like "net tonnage" and "gross tonnage" are explained in short and simple terms like nowhere else. Recommend having it available to anyone who doesn't know all the confusing math, but wants to know what the various thousands of words to do with measurement mean.
