Keep your engineering textbooks??

Is it worthwhile to keep my engineering textbooks?  Does anybody doing prosecution work refer to them on a regular basis?

Definitely keep them - it makes you look smarter to have all those books on your office bookshelf..  Smiley
 
Personally, I don't consult the books I retained on a regular basis but  they do occasionally come in handy.

But don't keep them at your mom's house if you are not living there.  She'll throw them out when she converts your room to a guest room.

As an examiner the older the book the better, especially with the pendencies we have now.

If you don't sell them while they are current (really defined by whether any school still uses them or not, so that you may sell them to current students), you might as well keep them to fill up the bookshelves.
