This page lists all skill books in Fallout: New Vegas.
  • The content is not described in full detail on this page. For details, please see the respective articles.
  • For skill books in other Fallout games, please see "Skill book."
  • For an overview of Fallout: New Vegas content, please refer to "Portal:Fallout: New Vegas."

General information

Reading a skill book permanently raises the corresponding skill by three points (four points with the Comprehension perk). The skill books are the same as the books from Fallout 3, with the exception of The Wasteland Survival Guide, which attributes to the newly added Survival skill, and U.S. Army: 30 Handy Flamethrower Recipes, which was removed because the attributed Big Guns skill was merged with Small Guns.

Types

The number of locations in parentheses includes additional skill books only accessible with add-ons.
