by Thomas A. Hughes

A comprehensive treatment of the basic principles of process control and instrumentation, for engineers, technicians, management, and sales personnel new to the subject. After a review of relevant mathematics, chapters cover electrical, electronic, and digital fundamentals, process control computers, final control elements, and methods and instruments for measuring factors such as pressure, level, and flow. Includes chapter introductions and exercises. Appendices offer standard graphics symbols and thermocouple tables. This second edition contains expanded material on logic design and measurement principles. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

I'm in the process of preparing to take the Principles and Practices Exam for Control Systems Engineering. I studied Electrical Engineering in college and have worked mostly with distributed/digital controls since then. I have performed little to no valve sizing or instrument selection.

I purchased this book to lay the foundation for the things I did not learn in school and have not practiced at work (instruments and valves).

This book is simple to read and provides the right amount of detail for teaching the Basics. I reviewed this book before taking an ISA CSE PE review course. Measurement and Control Basics provided enough knowledge so that I did not look completely clueless during the review course.

This book will not provide you with all the knowledge to prepare for the CSE PE exam, but it will get you started. I recommend reading this book, and then taking an ISA review course to identify other areas you need to study before the exam.
My copy was good as new. I have only had time to scan through it, but it is full of clear, no-nonsense information and I look forward to reading in when I get the chance.
Great book for instrumentation...
Wish it would have shipped faster- but just as stated in description

It was in almost new condition. I am very pleased.
The selection of this book as a text for an instrument course is a good one. It covers the broad area of measuring instrumentation and process control and covers it extremely well.
Good coverage of process control/loops and most measurement sensors/fundamentals, especially analytical instruments. Electrical theory needs to include basic electronics. Too many equations and impractical examples, many errors including temperature conversion equation and RTD Alpha units and Boolean logic sysmbols drawn as squares. Poor and inaccurate coverage of gauge and absolute pressure. No mention of pneumatics, IR thermometers, 4-20mA scaling, and calibration.
