    1. Acoustics and noise control - R. J. Peters, B. J. Smith, Margaret Hollins 2011

      Book  This book is a well known key reference text for acoustics, and is the only book that properly covers British standards and legislation. It can be heavy going, but it is useful for those who intend to make acoustics their career, as it is associated with the Institute of Acoustics Diploma syllabus.

    2. Recording studio design - Philip Richard Newell 2017

      Book  While it is not as general as some books on acoustics, by concentrating on the area of recording studio design it is able to go much deeper than those other books. It is pretty easy to read. There is only a little more material in the fourth edition compared to the third edition, and so that older edition might be worth buying if you notice a cheap copy available.

    3. Auditorium acoustics and architectural design - Michael Barron 2010

      Book  While it is not as general as some books on acoustics, by concentrating on the area of auditorium acoustics it is able to go much deeper than those other books. It is pretty easy to read. It includes plans and data that can be useful for the assignment.

    4. Master handbook of acoustics - F. Alton Everest, Ken C. Pohlmann 2015

      Book  This book has good general coverage and is pretty easy to read. It is also cheaper than many other acoustics books. However, it mainly uses non-metric units for description, and the Architectural Acoustics module will always use metric units. Some of the fundamentals in “Acoustics and Noise Control” are not covered quite as well.

    5. British Standards Online (BSOL)

      Webpage  This site provides access to the British/ISO standards that determine standard acoustic measurement techniques and related ideas.
