pocket guideThe course is cross-referenced with ETI's 2009 Ultimate GD&T Pocket Guide
Each lesson screen of the standards comparison course displays the page number from ETI's Ultimate GD&T Pocket Guide where more information about the topic can be found. The pocket guide is an invaluable on the job resource that includes all the topics from the 1994 version with updates to the 2009 ASME.
