    Five Stars Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Very Good reference for PE exams
    (Posted on 7/9/2015)

    Excellent compilation, but still contains nasty errors! Review by Wayne
    This is the best compilation available for this particular PE exam. However, the book still contains numerous serious errors which the author refuses to fix. Be careful! I have maintained a compendium of unacknowledged errors at http://waynethayer0.github.io/PE_Prep/

    The book does include a helpful recommended library to take into the exam, and has a recommended study plan.

    PPI Response: The Author and PPI’s Editorial Team addressed all of this customers issues. Many of the submitted issues were not valid or were discretionary changes which the Author has decided not to revise. Based on our review, we want to let the public know that the list this customer is providing is not a true representation of errors contained in the book (Posted on 7/5/2015)

    Superb Reference Review by Amazon.com Customer
    As a reference book, this is quite complete. The major topics are:
    I. Mathematics
    II. Basic Theory
    III. Field Theory
    IV. Circuit Theory
    V. Power Generation
    VI. Protection and Safety
    VII. Power System Management
    VIII. Measurement and Instrumentation
    IX. Electronics
    X. Digital Systems
    XI. Communications
    XII. Control Systems
    XIII. Electrical Materials
    XIV. Codes and Standards
    XV. Professional

    It would be better to expand on the future technologies section (Electrical Engineering Frontiers) but that is ever changing and not strictly necessary or predictable.

    As a test preparation book, this is also quite good. I have an old copy of the Electrical Engineering Review Manual (4th edition) and can see how this is derived from but how it greatly expands on the older work. It is a wise choice that the review manual was split into books dealing with electrical, power, and computer engineering. They are quite different fields. Both the electrical and power books have overlap so engineers who only want to purchase one book should choose the one appropriate to their field of practice. I have not viewed the computer engineering manual but think it may not be as current as it should be. I know Core Engineering Concepts for Students and Professionals had old sections on FORTRAN programming. I also appreciate the 30 page index. If I do take the exam, this will undoubtedly be most helpful. (Posted on 2/19/2015)
