    If your taking the Mechanical PE, buy this now. Review by Amazon Customer
    I recommend purchasing this right away. I waited for a month after I started studying the MERM and that was a mistake. This has probably 90% of what you;ll need from the MERM and is a great place to take notes, define variables and see the relevant equations in a section laid out one after the other. When working problems or taking practice tests this is where I spend 70% of my time. I havent taken the PE exam yet but I expect to spend more than 80% of my time flipping through this book and relying on my notes and annotations next to equations in here. There is something to be said for being intimately familiar with your tools and this will be my primary tool during the PE exam. Buy it right away and start taking notes next to each and every equation as you plow through the MERM. I've bought all the recommended books, MERM, this, PPI practice problems, 6 minute solutions books, Machine Design handbook 29, Shigleys (see my review on that book) and this is the one that I'm flipping through during problems constantly. Relying on my notes, the compressed pile of equations and looking for relationships between variables. This, the MERM and the test booklet itself will probably be 98% of what I use during the actual exam.

    Very Helpful, but incomplete Review by Fuhad1
    This book can be very helpful on the exam since it's much easier to sift through versus the MERM book. But on the other hand, a lot of information is also neglected, such as the definition of variables with the required units. As a result, you should definitely use this book during your study sessions and the exam, but understand you'll need to write your own notes within the book. (Posted on 5/29/2017)

    Super Condensed and Useful Review by Ryan
    I loved how condensed the manual was and how it referenced the equation numbers and chapters from the reference manual. It was missing a few equations from the reference manual. (Posted on 4/16/2016)
