    If you only buy one reference book, make it this one. Review by Amazon Customer
    This was my only reference besides the NCEES practice exam and I passed on the first try. I felt it had almost everything I needed. Enough background info to work unexpected problems, but not so much as to make information difficult to find.

    Over half of the other examinees had this book (or versions for other engineering disciplines) on their desks. (Posted on 2/8/2018)

    Helped me pass the PE! Review by Customer
    The examples are harder than those you find on the exam so if you can do these you are set! (Posted on 8/19/2015)

    Great Reference, helped me get my liscense Review by Customer
    If you're taking the mechanical engineering PE test, just fork over the money and buy it. It's great, it's got everything you need, seriously, it says it doesn't, but I didn't pick up another book during the entire thing...except for the Unit Conversions book by the same guy.
