    Five Stars Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Great review book. Came in perfect condition. The access code is just for an online version of the book (Posted on 4/7/2017)

    An Invaluable Resource ... Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Foremost, do note that the author states that in 2014, NCEES adopted revised specifications for this exam. He also notifies test-takers that the exam has now moved from paper-based to computer-based. Therefore, the author takes pains to prepare the test-taker for this transition. Likewise, the author also notes that the book itself is inadequate for the test-taker to be successful. While it introduces and reviews each subject, it is up to the test-taker to polish any deficient areas him or herself.

    While some review guides seem labyrinthine, here the subtopics are arranged into chapters. Each logically builds upon the last. Moreover, all material present by the author is succinct and necessary. Redundancies have been weeded out to allow for a distilled, clear review. This is quite welcome.

    Unlike a few review texts, each table and figure is well-rendered and explicit (even though grey-scale... which is fairly inconsequential here).

    Note from one professor to another: this can be used in a classroom setting to prepare students for this exam. Lectures can focus on certain subchapters. Likewise, handouts and homework can be created to emphasize what was learned in lecture.

    While price is daunting (I deducted one-star for making the price too exorbitant for many students to comfortably afford), this will give the test-taker a little extra confidence on the day of the test. And that, is invaluable. (Posted on 7/9/2015)

    Not an amazon vine review Review by Amazon.com Customer
    I would probably give this book slightly less than 4 stars actually. I bought it April 15th when it was released and used it to study for my exam at the end of May. I finished my MSEE degree in 2007 and have worked in a fairly hands on job ever since...though I would consider my self an average student. There seems to be very few mistakes in the book. The book does cover all the material, though the organization of the book does not quite follow the NCEES Electrical and Computer outline. There are sections like Laplace transforms which the outline says is part of Linear Systems but Lindeburg put it in the Math section. There are a few examples of this so it makes organizing your study plan a little off if you're trying to follow the NCEES outline, but at least all the material is covered. I think the biggest concern I had was the problems I worked in the book, which I worked all of them twice, did not seem to be a great representation of the actual exam. They do a good job of highlighting the equations in the book that are in the FE reference manual provided at the test center.

    I passed my first try, though I was not too confident I would when I walked out. I studied 2-3 hours a night for 6 weeks taking a 1-2 days off here and there. I only used this book to study and I also worked many practice problems in the PPI2PASS quiz bank which again, I also didn't find a great representation. The practice exam you can buy from NCEES was a little better. The test changes every time so perhaps it was just the subset of questions that were on my test that didn't do this book justice.

    Overall, I would say it's worth buying this book as it does cover all the material, but try to work problems from other sources than just the ones in this book (and PPI). Use this book to review the material, but work as many problems as you can from at least one other source. Also, when you work the problems in the book, don't rely on the fact that the equation you need is likely right above the problem, use the reference manual (from NCEES) to work all the problems so you gain familiarity with that manual. Working more problems will help with time and speaking of time, figure out at time plan before hand (how many questions per hour you need to answer) (Posted on 6/17/2015)
