    Great to Have Review by William
    This is probably the single best reason to order the PE Civil Reference Manual direct from PPI. I've heard a significant number of test takers suggest printing out the index and appendices to the manual and bind them up to bring to the exam separately. However, PPI does this for you for no additional charge. I'm not even planning to touch backmatter in my proper manual. (Posted on 12/13/2018)

    Reliable Review by Amazon Customer
    I've owned two other versions of this book (maybe three) over the years and it's superb. This updated version is probably the best yet. Yes - it's huge. I'm talking HUGE but packed full of everything from equations to materials and everything else in between. Extensive reference, examples, cross referencing...really there simply isn't a more reliable resource.

    Absolutely indispensable for PE prep. I use this more than any other reference. This is the first book I look to for any references. with a little tabbing and a lot of time digging through it, nearly all the information you need is in there. (Posted on 5/18/2018)
