   The second edition was excellent.  Concise, includes all the core
technologies, much cheaper and much more convenient than the big three
volumes.  The background is abbreviated but sufficient and there are charts
for solutions, etc.  There is a new third edition but I haven't seen it.
   -hope this helps,
