Did someone forget to proofread? Sept. 19 2006
By mohr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book last week and I've only worked through the second chapter but I've already found 4 mistakes. Grammatical mistakes I can handle but what I've come across are technical mistakes, units - poorly photocopied diagrams, mislabeled examples, that I cannot handle. If you're the publisher or one of the contributors reading this review you should be ashamed of yourself. Save your money, stick to Michael R. Lindeburg.

Okay Jan. 22 2007

Format: Paperback
This book is okay. It's not very in-depth. I would pay the extra money and get a more thorough study guide.

Quite useless April 25 2007
By maria-katerina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It discusses in detail obvious stuff, and then references you to textbooks for more advanced topics. So it is more of a basic reference for the things you practice everyday, than a way to help you remember the topics you did during your undergrad degree
Quite worthless Oct. 10 2010
By jes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Why this book is not worth buying:

1.) The equations in the book does not match up with the equations used in the FE Supplied Reference book provided by NCEES during the FE exam so it's frustrating to study two sets of equations (with different units) for the same material. It's
inconvenient and time consuming.

2.) Each chapter has a tiny review section that supplies equations and a few examples (if examples are provided) then users can try the practice problems at the end. The problem is that the review is VERY basic and hardly skims the surface of the subject matter therefore it is not enough for a thorough review of the subject. This means, I have to grab out my old textbooks and look up each topic and review from them if I still own the textbook.

3.) Not as organized when compared to the FE Review Manual from Lindeburg (I use the FE Review Manual to study for the morning portion of the FE).

All and all, not worth buying.
Good FE/EIT Review Book Jan. 23 2014
By Gabrielle J. Rigaud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this to study for the CE portion of the EIT. I believe I got the general version and the CE specific. I also got the FE manual with the equations in it. The review exercises were helpful and the content subjects and question types were pretty much the same as the FE exam itself. I passed obviously.
However, I must say, if you're taking the text, make sure that you study with the FE manual that has the equations. When you're taking a test and you don't know where specific equations are, it takes away from time you could spend on harder questions. Get familiar with the manual.
