    Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual, 14th Edition

    Re-engineered and Enhanced for Computer-Based Testing Success!

    This Michael R. Lindeburg, PE classic has undergone an intensive transformation to ensure focused study for success on the 2020 NCEES computer-based tests (CBT): HVAC and Refrigeration, Machine Design and Materials, and Thermal and Fluid Systems.

    Starting in April 2020, exams will be offered year-round at approved Pearson Vue testing centers. The only resource examinees can use during the test will be the NCEES PE Mechanical Reference Handbook. To succeed on exam day, you need to know how to solve problems using that resource. MERM14 makes that connection for you by using only NCEES equations in the review and problem solving.

    New Features Include:

    • Improved design to focus study on most important exam material

    • Explanations and demonstration of how to use NCEES handbook equations

    • NCEES handbook equations are highlighted in blue for quick access

    • In chapter callouts map to specific exam to streamline review process

    Part of the Essential Exam Set

    Brush up on key exam topics, learn what equations to use, and review detailed step-by-step solutions in this book. Then go to the Mechanical Engineering Practice Problems to solve related question until you are confident with the topic. Corresponding chapters makes it easy to use both books at the same time. Buy both and save

    Fairly helpful study material Review by Chris
    It does contain the material which is needed to study for the exam, and overall I am pleased I purchased it. There were three things of note, however, which I believe should be worked on:

    1) listing the relevant sub-chapters for the HVAC exam (the one I am studying for) was leaving out certain things which I fully believe are important to learn and have showed up in practice problems, so I ignored the recommendations and studied all of it.

    2) Some of the example solutions made little sense, or skipped steps, resulting in confusion.

    3) Example problems are in the format: "English Units (SI Units)" for the question, but list the SI Solution then the English solution. I think English should come first for consistency. (Posted on 8/30/2020)

    Overall good, but.... Review by Jordan
    I really like the NCEES handbook formulas in blue, that is very helpful. Some opportunities for improvement would be eliminating unnecessary topics. Looks like there were a few that carried over from the previous edition that are not in the NCEES topic outline or handbook for the Mechanical PE test variations. Also, practice problems have some errors. I reported the ones I've encountered in the learning hub. (Posted on 3/15/2020)
