    good practice Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    it's been a while since I took the test, but this book was good practice problems. Gets you in the motion of about 6 minutes/problem. I didn't like the hints just under the problem statement. I would cheat and look at the hint. I put sticky paper over the hints to prevent cheating.

    I only used this 6min solutions and the ChERM manual and practice problems and passed on my first attempt (Posted on 5/2/2016)

    Passed the Exam on the First Try Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    This book was my main study source for the PE, and I passed on the first try with less study time than I had hoped. (I studied around 100 hours, I think.) The problems were longer and more difficult than the actual PE questions, which is much better than the other way around. They covered all exam topics, and the solutions were detailed.

    I worked through most of the problems in this book, took the NCEES practice exam like it was the real exam, then went back and hit my problem areas in this and other books. (Posted on 5/2/2016)
