    Great resource Review by Joe
    This book is a great resource for those planning to take the HVAC afternoon session. Though the description says morning and afternoon, it is possible you could see any one of the 85 problems on the afternoon session. All problems stress fundamental concepts, but provide straightforward solutions. The number of steps to arrive at a solution and the content were more realistic in this book than most, if not all, of the other practice materials I used. There is just enough repetition of concepts to prepare you, but also feel like you are getting good value. (Posted on 12/11/2014)
