    Question Looking For Book Recommendations

    For someone who's interested in starting classes to become an engineer, are there any good textbooks or other materials that you folks would suggest?

    I finished my EVD (Emergency Vehicle Driver certification) a while back, and I'd like to begin learning a little more about hydraulics and pump operations.

    Any recommendations are welcome.

    The IFSTA pump operator is a good basic text.

    Excellent; I'll try to reach my local IFSTA pubs contact and see about obtaining that.
    Any other recommendations?

    This book although printed in 1984 is pretty good. Most of the basics are still the same.

    IFSTA is the book. All the tests will probably be taken from that text. Call them at 800-654-4055, they pay shippig if you charge it.

    Like everyone else, I would recommend the IFSTA book, it covers just about everything you need to know, short of hands on exp..
