    Provides More Reference Material On Basic Engineering Concepts Than Exam Questions Review by Amazon Customer
    This thick and pricey book is aimed not just at PE Power Exam test-takers but for anyone working as an electrical engineer. While the introduction is focused on the test itself, providing the reader with a good overview, test taking advice and useful details about what types of problems you might encounter on the test, this section is scant compared to the rest of the voluminous book, which consists of individual sections focusing on basic mathematical and electrical concepts that any engineer should master before tackling more complex problems. For actual practice problems, the reader is advised to purchase a “companion” volume, Power Practice Problems for the Electrical and Computer PE Exam.

    As a result, this book, while useful, is primarily for testing yourself on how well you know electrical engineering in general. As such, I would try to buy an older edition if your budget doesn’t allow buying this one – the main advantage of the latest edition is that it contains information on the latest codes and regulations. However, if your primary goal is to bone up on your knowledge of engineering, you can find older books containing similar information for cheaper, as some fundamental basics and concepts haven’t changed all that much.
