    Don't miss easy questions on the PE exam, Review by Amazon Customer
    because you don't know the definition of a word!
    You are sure to come across terms that you have never heard before, and the answer will be apparent as long as you can figure out what the problem statement is asking. (Posted on 2/26/2018)

    Great book for my engineering library Review by Amazon Customer
    I bought the book to help me in defining terms that I was unfamiliar with while taking the PE exam. I used the book a few times during my exam and quite possibly helped in getting a few questions correct. This book is also a great addition to my engineering library at my office and would recommend it to any practicing water resource engineer.
