    Good example examination for PLS Review by Amazon Customer
    Good sample exam for PLS examinees. Gives you a good feel of what to expect on the PLS exam itself. It is setup in very much the same way the actual NCEES exam is setup.

    The negative is that the cost is rather high for a 25 question sample exam that I was able to run through in less than an hour.

    Recommendation: If you are in a cost crunch in purchasing a number books to study from, I would purchase this book last. I would start by purchasing the 1001 Fundamentals of Surveying book. Much more information is provided in that book for about the same cost. If cost is not an concern, I found it somewhat useful just for the comfort level of what to expect on the exam itself.
