    Mech Ref Manual Review by Allen
    Excellent reference manual (Posted on 12/5/2018)

    Good resource Review by Amazon Customer
    If you are taking the Mechanical PE exam with HVAC afternoon session, get this edition. If you are taking the other afternoon sessions, then any edition will suffice. (Posted on 12/11/2015)

    Good reference, worth the money, except for: Review by Daniel
    This book would rate 5 stars except for the following on page XXIV:

    "The PE exam in mechanical engineering primarily uses customary U.S. units..."

    I took the April 2015 TF exam, and found this to be BAD AND MISLEADING INFORMATION. Yes, I know it says that SI units "are also used". I stand by my statement.

    I did pass the test the first time, in no small part due to this book. Perhaps this statement in the introduction will be updated. Bottom line is buy this book, but don't think that you don't have to study your SI solutions. (Posted on 5/26/2015)
