    Engineering Unit Conversions (UNIT4)

    If you have ever struggled with converting grams to slugs, centistokes to square feet per second, or pounds per million gallons (lbm/MG) to milligrams per liter (mg/L), you will appreciate the time-saving value of this book. More than 4,500 entries covering traditional English, conventional metric, and SI units in the fields of civil, mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering make conversions a snap.

    Useful Review by Michelle
    So far most of the conversions I needed have been in the covers of the Reference Manual. The ones that have not were in the Engineering Unit Conversions. However, there are a lot of conversions in there, I do not know if it will be of any use during the test. It might come in handy at work though. (Posted on 4/23/2016)

    A must have for the PE Exam Review by Amazon.com Customer
    This book improved the speed at which I was able to solve problems on the PE Exam: Mechanical Systems and Materials. I tabbed the key units pages for: Cubic Feet/Minute, Gallons Per Minute, BTU Horsepower, Watts, and PSI. I went to this book repeatedly during the exam and found what I was looking for quickly.

    Useful for the PE Exam Review by Amazon.com Customer
    A must have for the PE exam, you're brain will be working hard enough, no point in taking the risk of messing up a simple unit conversion. This will have it (except for the crazy unit question on the Lindburgh practice exam, thats only in a footnote in the MERM) and is much more thorough than the appendix of the MERM or the Machine Design Handbook. I missed the unit conversion question on the NEECs practice exam so I bought this. If I'd had it then I would have gotten it right in about 30 seconds. (Posted on 7/30/2015)
