    Chemical Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam, Print (Paperback), 7th Edition

    Comprehensive Chemical Engineering Coverage You Can Trust.

    The Chemical Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive textbook for the Chemical PE exam. This book’s time-tested organization and clear explanations start with the basics to help you quickly get back up to speed with common chemical engineering concepts. Together, the 66 chapters provide an in-depth review of NCEES Chemical PE exam topics. Industry-standard terminology, nomenclature, and units are used throughout. U.S. customary and SI units are equally supported, and units are meticulously identified and rigorously carried through in all formulas. More than 350 examples illustrate basic concepts.

    Numerous features in this reference are designed to help you quickly find what you’re looking for. The index contains thousands of terms, most indexed in multiple ways, in anticipation of how you’ll search for them. Cross-references to hundreds of equations, figures, and tables guide you to related support material. More than 60 appendices will help you solve most practical problems using the Chemical Engineering Reference Manual alone.

    Once you pass your exam, the Chemical Engineering Reference Manual will continue to serve as an invaluable reference throughout your chemical engineering career.

    Solid study outline and reference manual Review by Customer
    If you were like me and sold your textbooks back in college, this book will help you pass the PE exam. It won't be your only book: a little light on reaction kinetics, and Perry's will have a good chunk of the answers as well, but overall a great reference. I used it as a study outline and then as a reference manual during the exam. Had no binding problems like one of the previous reviewers. Also holds its re-sale value, making the price sting a little bit less. (Posted on 5/5/2015)

    Excellent study guide for the PE test Review by Customer
    This was an excellent review manual for the PE exam. I used only this review book along with the practice problem and quick reference companion to study for the test, and passed the exam on the first try. I also use this as a great reference manual at work as well. (Posted on 5/5/2015)

    Great Reference for the PE Exam! Review by Customer
    Seems to have the perfect balance of material. I've always found Perry's Handbook to be surprisingly un-useful in terms of understanding and setting up specific problems. This volume is much better that way. There are a lot of reference tables in the back that I have not seen elsewhere. I used this book a lot during the exam, along with my subject-specific books (thermo, kinetics, etc.). (Posted on 5/5/2015)
