    Great additional practice, recommended Review by Customer
    I'm not sure where all the errors are that other reviewers are so critical of, but my copy had typical problems and typical solutions that were a benefit to my preparation for the PE Mechanical - Mechanical Systems and Materials Problems.

    The problems varied across the spectrum expected for the PM module, and from what I remember did not have a test disconnect. There will be test problems that draw from the same exact body of knowledge as presented in this book. I was looking for more practice, and this book delivers well. The PE exam seemed pretty easy, but I worked a ton of problems in preparation. This book was a part of that, and I consider it a very good value. If you think you need addition practice for your PM, don't hesitate to try this book.

    Great exam preparation, really restored motivation to study Review by Customer
    Like everyone else I purchased this book for the PE exam. I havent taken the actual exam yet but after over 190 hours of studying I was starting to run out of steam. I had worked every single practice problem in the mechanical systems portion of the Lindburgh practice problems book (which I also recommend) but still felt like I wasn't getting it. The problems in this book are slightly harder than the NEECS practice exam but much more representative than the majority of the Lindburgh practice problems. I am halfway through after two days of intense study and I have been able to work out the solution to almost every problem (not always the right answer..units...units..). This really restored my motivation to study and I'm feeling more confident and like I have a better grasp of the material than I did a few days ago. I have yet to find any errors in the most current printing (version5). The wording is not always as clear as the NEECS example test but outside of that its the best set of sample questions I've seen. 19 Days till the exam... (Posted on 2/19/15)
