    Five Stars Review by Amazon customer
    Bought this book for my P.E. Exam. No issue yet (Posted on 5/18/2018)

    and a great desk reference thereafter Review by Amazon customer
    Absolutely necessary for the PE morning exam session, and a great desk reference thereafter. The book contains significantly more information than you'll need for the exam, so work through the NCEES specifications of exam topics instead of working through this book cover-to-cover. I took the structural depth section and never opened this book in the afternoon. I'd recommend William's Structural Engineering Reference Manual (SERM) for the afternoon session.
