    Easy to Navigate and Use Review by Matthew
    The book is easy to navigate and reference and gives a very thorough explanation of the PE exam. (Posted on 9/21/2016)

    Power Reference Manual Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Very extensive coverage and easy to use reference and exam prep. Topics are black tabbed to quickly turn to that topic. Discussions include clear illustrations and figures with mathematical and electrical symbols and formulas. Fifteen chapters on mathematics alone. Well indexed with 36 pages. At first glance this may seem overwhelming to the layman and while designed for preparing for the PE exam, there is a wealth of information that can assist anyone as a stand alone reference. This book is already huge with just the information but you can get the Power Practice Problems for the Electrical and Computer PE Exam to practice solving related problems for each chapter. The intro goes into detail on how to prepare for the exam including a check list for your car to make sure you get there! (Posted on 5/20/2016)

    Comprehensive, covers all exam topics thoroughly Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Since the publication of the first edition this book has come to be recognized as the standard for preparing for the NCEES ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER–ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS Exam. The coverage is comprehensive with every section of the necessary exam material explored in great detail. ALL of the equations that a candidate needs to know and understand are included, along with a great deal of introductory material for those who are weak in one area or another. There are a few other exam prep manuals on the market but this would be my choice. Also, as an aside, I'd recommend taking an in-person review course before attempting the exam. This would make a good reference book, as well, but there are better alternatives for that purpose given the price. (Posted on 5/2/2016)
