    Knowledge is power Review by Christopher
    I enjoy how it covers all the topics an Electrical Engineer may need to reference in their career. Either as a refresher or as a starting point on obtaining knowledge. (Posted on 6/15/2016)

    Power Reference Manual Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Very extensive coverage and easy to use reference and exam prep. Topics are black tabbed to quickly turn to that topic. Discussions include clear illustrations and figures with mathematical and electrical symbols and formulas. Fifteen chapters on mathematics alone. Well indexed with 36 pages. At first glance this may seem overwhelming to the layman and while designed for preparing for the PE exam, there is a wealth of information that can assist anyone as a stand alone reference. This book is already huge with just the information but you can get the Power Practice Problems for the Electrical and Computer PE Exam to practice solving related problems for each chapter. The intro goes into detail on how to prepare for the exam including a check list for your car to make sure you get there! (Posted on 5/20/2016)

    You know you need this & you really CANNOT do too much prepping for the Exam but there are lots more options if $$ is tight! Review by Amazon.com Customer
    You all know what this book is for so after 4+ years of College, you don't need my 2 cents! If you haven't taken the Exam yet, of course you need/want the latest Edition! You have how much invested into your degree?? You know now is NOT the time to skimp on the material to prep you for the test!
    if it is just to be used as a reference book, I would wait a bit to see if the price drops or they become available used.
    If you absolutely can't swing it $$ right now to prep for the Exam, check at your University (*they usually throw out the old Editions when they buy the new) go to the person that is in charge of that Dept there, they probably will give you the old one for free & let you check out the new one over the weekend when the Department's head office is closed.
    Another good resource is the, "PE Electrical and Computer Engineering: Power Practice Exam" by Ncees (*for $64.00 new on Amazon) BUT do ask on the engineering boards for discussions, where you can find out more info on these books that I can't include here (*so I was just told) for tips and other info/resources that are available. I had a link to more info but I had to delete it, I'm not sure why, I've seen other reviews with them, oh well, I tried....
    I had to give it 5 stars in spite of the huge price tag, as when it comes to college textbooks, this is a bargain for what's in it. I've spent more for some books that weren't worth reading, let alone would remain useful as a reference book for years to come. (Posted on 5/20/2016)
