    A MUST HAVE for the Civil PE Exam Review by Amazon Customer
    This is a MUST HAVE for the Civil PE Exam. There are so many topics covered in the AM, breadth portion of the exam, that you are sure to come across some terms that you have not yet encountered or are not familiar with. Due to the specialized content, you are unlikely to find most of these terms in a standard dictionary. I tried a handful of other "Scientific" and "Egneineering" dictionaries but this is hands down the best for the PE Exam.

    Great for the PE exam Review by Amazon Customer
    I was skeptical when told to purchase this for studying the PE exam but have been pleasantly surprised with how handy it's come in already. It's a great reference and though I was originally planning to sell it back after my exam, I will keep it. I'm happy to have a quick reference at my desk for Civil Engineering.

    Pretty adorable Review by Jesus
    Having these definitions will definitely help in the theory section of any exam. Really great resource to have while taking the PE and not bulky like many other books out there. (Posted on 10/10/2017)
