    Great purchase Review by Amazon Customer
    Best reference to have. Worth every penny. It's way more information than you need for the test, so make sure you know exactly what subjects are on your exam. I probably only used half this book. (Posted on 2/8/2018)

    Information Firehose! Review by Amazon Customer

    I passed! Review by Customer
    I took the April 2015 exam (ME - thermo/fluids) and passed. I used this book as my main study source and read it cover-to-cover. It was useful for getting back into ME subjects that I don't work with everyday. The example problems in this book are lacking, so reference problems elsewhere (I used my school books, not the PPI). I supplemented this book with my books from school, which was somewhat difficult, since this book uses different variables than I am used to.

    I used this book a bit during the exam for concepts, but for formulas I used my school books and the FE equation book. I would recommend bringing one thermo, fluids, and heat transfer book (if taking thermo/fluids) in addition to this one for the exam. I did not feel that any additional books were needed outside of the depth subjects. This book was sufficient for the remaining ME topics.

    I gave this 5 stars, since it will make for a great reference for the future and ultimately I passed the exam. I would recommend studying from and bringing this book to the exam.

    By the way, I studied for 136 hours over 7 weeks before the exam. It was a lot of work, so set a study schedule and stick to it. Make sure to set aside time for practice problems (do the problems, don't jump to the solution). I read through all of the Amazon reviews to get a feel for the exam as well as this book, so I wanted to share what worked for me. Study hard and you will pass! (Posted on 7/9/2015)
