We love us some’ Pocket Ref, it’s a great little book with concise all-purpose reference featuring hundreds of tables, maps, formulas, constants & conversions AND it still fits in your shirt pocket! We’re pleased to announce that we have a limited edition MAKE pocket ref. Get one, heck two, at the MAKE store only $12.95! – Link.

Or… You can just subscribe to MAKE for 2 years and get one for FREE – Link.

Either way, they’re a limited run, so they’re going like hot-cakes, if hot-cakes were made from Pocket Refs.What’s in the Pocket Ref?
