    Useful for the PE Exam Review by Amazon.com Customer
    A must have for the PE exam, you're brain will be working hard enough, no point in taking the risk of messing up a simple unit conversion. This will have it (except for the crazy unit question on the Lindburgh practice exam, thats only in a footnote in the MERM) and is much more thorough than the appendix of the MERM or the Machine Design Handbook. I missed the unit conversion question on the NEECs practice exam so I bought this. If I'd had it then I would have gotten it right in about 30 seconds. (Posted on 7/30/2015)

    Invaluable companion for the PE exam Review by Amazon.com Customer
    This book is a must for the PE exam. Units are alphabetical so easy to find, and listed both ways (e.g. search "feet" to convert from foot to inches, or search "inch" to convert from inches to feet). Don't know what I would have done without this! (Posted on 7/30/2015)
