    Excellent for PE Exam and Life After Studying Review by Amazon Customer
    I was able to pass the Mechanical PE exam (TFS afternoon) on my first attempt thanks to this book! I purchased it as part of a prep class from PPI. Honestly, with the right study habits, mastering this book is enough to pass. I highly suggest supplementing your study with the Practice Problems book, PPI Practice Exam, and the NCEES practice exam (at a minimum). After the exam, this book has continued to be a valuable reference for me. I strongly recommend every Mechanical engineer has a copy of this book available. (Posted on 2/8/2018)

    Essential Reference for Every Engineer Review by Amazon review
    I just recently passed the mechanical PE exam (fluids discipline), and I thought I would share the studying strategy that seemed to work for me. The very first thing you should do is purchase this book, the Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual (MERM), even if you do not plan to take the PE for several years. This is an excellent book that is useful for any mechanical engineer to have. Plus, if you begin to use it now, it will only help to make you more comfortable with it for the exam.
