3.0 out of 5 stars last word 15 Dec. 2015
By Gerous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Has a huge pile of math problems each chapter before explaining how they work. Read it out of order to understand. On the other hand, if you get through it, you'll be tops in Health Physics. Bevelacqua is the final word on HP math.
5.0 out of 5 stars Industry Standard 13 Mar. 2013
By AM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bevelacqua is the author the majority of HPs rely upon when it comes to studying CHP questions. Took the test; saw quite a few similar questions. Some minor errata which the publisher has corrected.
4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive coverage of the health physics field, with some in-depth coverage provided for some practical applications too. 18 Sept. 2013
By ChrisPhysLuca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book provides a great deal of material to enable a student or anyone interested in taking the American Board of Health Physics (ABHP) Part I and Part II exams that will grant a candidate CHP certification. So, in that respect it is excellent. Nevertheless, there are not too many worked out examples within the chapters. Otherwise, it is a great book.
