    Five Stars Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Very good reference source for the PE exam. (Posted on 8/19/2015)

    Invaluable ... Review by Amazon.com Customer
    While this text is directed at environmental engineers, it can also be an invaluable resource for all civil engineers in the truest sense. As the author points out, this topic is so massive, so broad that it is impossible to remember all minutia. Therefore, this text can act as both a quick reference and as a comprehensive piece for slow, careful review.

    If you are considering upgrading from an earlier text, you may wish to consider those areas that have been revised and expanded upon. Protection of Wetlands, Air Quality, Toxicology, Industrial Hygiene, Health and Safety, Biological Effects of Radiation, Shielding, and Emergency Management are "updated to reflect current environmental practices and standards." Additionally, there are small alterations throughout the text as a whole. Therefore, if you have passed the PE Exam and are considering updating from the first edition to this edition, I believe it to be a nearly necessary purchase (and, perhaps, a burden of this wonderful profession). If you are thinking about the jump from the second edition to this, I would still highly recommend it. Remaining as current as possible makes you a valuable asset and entirely relevant.

    Especially for the purpose of the PE Exam, it is essential to know that each topic is presented in a "stand alone" format. This is particularly important since it allows the student to intensely focus in a single area in which he/she believes he/she has a deficit.

    When you purchase this text, know that it is an investment in your future. If you are a student, I understand that the price-tag is truly daunting. However, know that there is no other series as committed to helping students and remaining as current and as precise.

    Although it is an added expense, if you are willing to invest in this text, consider purchasing: Practice Problems for the Environmental Engineering PE Exam if you are preparing for the exam itself. This companion text has over 600 practice problems with explicit solutions. (Posted on 5/5/2015)

    This is an excellent reference manual for the Professional Engineering exam Review by Amazon.com Customer
    This is an excellent reference manual for the Professional Engineering exam. The book covers some excellent PE problems and detailed course reviews. I feel like this would be an excellent supplement to a more detailed book with some more examples which are lacking in this. Overall, an invaluable source that is laid out in organized way and would definitely recommend this. (Posted on 5/5/2015)
