"Professor Roger Wobeke has provided the industrial hygiene profession with an excellent resource. This book provides not only an excellent overview of the topic; it also provides a large volume of worked example problems. The diligent student of the art and science of industrial hygiene will be well prepared to provide opinions backed by numbers rather than conjecture after reading and studying this book. Professor Wabeke’s late father was correct; there is nothing more devastating to an unscientific opinion than a good number. This book helps us to provide good numbers. Every industrial hygienist should have this book on his shelf."

Yet, they must plan it carefully because sufficient time is required to browse through it topic by topic and page by page before the date for the examination."
