    Units. Review by Michael
    Overall
    Collectively I would say that this book is where you will find units. And a common excuse its that all the information is EASYREADYACCESS on the internet and or an electronic device. Regardless I say that it is a good buy. I have one sitting on my bookshelf.
    Good luck on the exam .. getting harder every day to pass…
    A bit disappointed no longer a hardcover. I recommend a change in output! (Posted on 11/29/2017)
    Handy reference Review by David
    Overall
    I wondered when I initially made the purchase whether it would go un used. I was wrong. It came in so handy when doing the environmental practice problems. (Posted on 9/22/2017)

    A "must" Review by Lynn
    Overall
    Hands down, a required resource for the Mechanical (mechanical systems concentration) PE Exam. The exam often mixed units on basic problems. Study with this resource and spend some hours getting to know all it has, it will save you time, no doubt, when the crunch is on.

    On the test, write out your units! Many problems mixed in. and feet, and writing out units saved me a few problems, for sure. (Posted on 10/31/2016)
