piece(s) of equipment Do I have to use ' ~ piece(s) of' when I count equipment? For example, Do you use 1.She needs three new pieces of office equipment. rather than "2.She needs three new office equipments."?

You definitely must use "pieces" of equipment. Equipment is one of those strange nouns that is not countable, even though it seems like it should be!

it depends of the things you're talking about. I need two pieces of pizza. I need three packs of cigarets. About the equipment, pieces can be used but as i say before it depends of the things. ^^
