    Invaluable content; overkill study strategies Review by Michael
    The value of the MERM for the PE test really cannot be overstated - almost everything you need can be found there. I was surprised multiple times at being able to find exactly the topic I needed in the index, even when it seemed to me that I was searching for something too specific.

    The one thing that I did not like about the MERM was the suggestions on how to study/what to bring to the test etc. I found that these were overkill and served more to create fear rather than offer useful advice. You have an average of 6 minutes per question - I highly doubt most people can comb through 30 different reference materials quickly enough to get through the test. At the end of the day, most things come down to sound engineering methods, and if you don't know something, you don't know it - move on. For efficient studying, I think a lot less emphasis could have been placed on the breadth subjects - you only get a handful of questions on each subject, so I found it wasn't worth the time to try and become an expert on everything - know the basic concepts, and know where to look in the MERM. I suppose if you follow all the suggestions for studying you'll be well beyond over-prepared and will sail through the test (unless you're burnt out/overloaded with information from multiple different subjects), but for me, balancing studying, my work life, and my family life, I needed to find a more efficient approach (which I did, and I passed the test on my first try!).

    MERM Index Review by Gerald
    I would like to see a feature similar to the Appendices Table of Contents(ATOC) included in the MERM Index. I find my self looking for appendices quite often and the ATOC provides that at a glance without having to use tabs. (Posted on 7/14/2016)
