Did someone forget to proofread? Sept. 19 2006

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.
Useless Jan. 5 2007
By N. salama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Talk about a big disappointment.I was expecting a book that would really help me prepare for the civil discipline specific portion of the EIT exam. Unfortunately this book only skims the top of major topics and does not go into any sort of detail whatsoever.It's not a complete book, i think it miss more than 50% of the course. My suggestion would be to leave this book alone and study from reference text books.
