    Great reference Review by Amazon.com Customer
    a great go-to for conversions. i was unaware of so many different units and how they could be converted. A must have for engineers and students (Posted on 7/30/15)

    Invaluable companion for the PE exam Review by Amazon.com Customer
    This book is a must for the PE exam. Units are alphabetical so easy to find, and listed both ways (e.g. search "feet" to convert from foot to inches, or search "inch" to convert from inches to feet). Don't know what I would have done without this! (Posted on 7/30/15)

    Essential for the PE Review by Lee
    This book is a major time saver when taking the exam! Instead of lengthy conversions, they are simplified to simply multiply by some constant to convert to the proper units. Given the short time frame to answer each question, it is good to have quick conversions on hand.
    The only downside is there are so many conversions that you better have a general idea and common knowledge of the book prior to using it in the exam! Use this when solving practice problems to become familiar with the format and overall usefulness of the book. (Posted on 7/15/14)
