    A "must" Review by Lynn
    Hands down, a required resource for the Mechanical (mechanical systems concentration) PE Exam. The exam often mixed units on basic problems. Study with this resource and spend some hours getting to know all it has, it will save you time, no doubt, when the crunch is on.

    On the test, write out your units! Many problems mixed in. and feet, and writing out units saved me a few problems, for sure. (Posted on 10/31/2016)

    A must have for the PE Exam Review by Amazon.com Customer
    This book improved the speed at which I was able to solve problems on the PE Exam: Mechanical Systems and Materials. I tabbed the key units pages for: Cubic Feet/Minute, Gallons Per Minute, BTU Horsepower, Watts, and PSI. I went to this book repeatedly during the exam and found what I was looking for quickly.

    A Must-Have Review by Amazon.com Customer
    I just took the PE Mechanical exam today using this little guy. It may seem a little overprices, but it is worth its weight in gold. Don't take the PE exam without it. (Posted on 7/30/2015)
