Having moved from the power generation field--where large scale distributed control systems do the vast majority of control and PLCs handle packaged auxiliaries--to the manufacturing industry, I encountered I/O devices and motion control applications I wasn't familiar with. Mr. P's book filled in the gaps.
It would have been nice if answers to at least the odd numbered review questions had been included to help quickly test my understanding, but when in doubt, I go back to the text where the answers can always be found.
I also purchased the LogixPro PLC simulator (Mr. P also wrote a lab exercise manual that comes with the simulator or you can buy the simulator by itself). It gives you the ability to write, test and debug programs using the RS LOGIX instruction set and programming interface--in fact it's very close to the real deal. I really could have used that when I first started programming PLCs because learning to program using a real PLC hooked up to lights and switches is too limiting (and prohibitively expensive for many of us). And I'd rather not test and debug my programs using live machinery if I can avoid it.
