Product Description

From the Publisher

This book is written primarily for engineers taking the environmental PE exam. After the exam, the Environmental Engineering Reference Manual provides practicing engineers with a handy distillation of the environmental engineering field, including problem-solving examples and methods that typical references don't offer.

About the Author

Michael R. Lindeburg, PE, is recognized among the engineering community as the leading authority on professional engineering licensing exam preparation. The author of many books on this subject, he has taught and supervised exam-review courses for over 25 years. He holds BS and MS degrees from Stanford Universiy in industrial engineering. When not writing, he can be found hosting the "Licensing Exam Forum," an online bulletin board for FE and PE candidates.

Format: Hardcover
My undergraduate was in Geography. My Masters in Environmental Engineering. I am not good at math, and formulas with greek letters still make me tense inside. Having said this, here are the books you need to concentrate on to pass this exam the first time.
1. This book. It needs to be your centerpiece, your touchstone. You need to know this book, and especially the tables and appendices. Location, Location, Location is so important, know where everything is in this book. Make this book part of your life. Travel with it, sit with it, take it on your 10 minute coffee breaks... just know this book.
2. Next: 101 Solved Engineering Problems. This book has the most realistic PE Problems. Do them all. They are categorized by type so you must write the page from Lindeberg next to the problem in this book for quick cross reference. This is your best book for quickly finding an example of what you are trying to solve on the test.
3. Next: Lindeberg Practice Problems. Also good, but not as good as 101 (above). Use this as a reference. It aligns with the Lindeberg Hard Cover for quick cross reference.
4. Last: Environmental Engineering Practice Exams (Schneiter). Do all the problems. It looks like a Lindeberg, but it isn't. Like 101 Solved Problems, you must cross-reference the problems with there topic location in Lindeberg Hard Cover. Questions are not in a particular order (4 practice exams, level about right), but questions are in random order which makes look-up during exam tough.
5. Environmental Law Handbook (Sullivan). Need this for the regulatory, and statutory questions. Find a good OSHA book too.
6. Last: Environmental Engineering Calculations (Lee & Lin). This book is expensive and big, but it is a good fail safe.

FOR NON-UNDERGRADUTE ENGINEERS June 18 2004
By Paul B. Olsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover

6. Last: Environmental Engineering Calculations (Lee & Lin). This book is expensive and big, but it is a good fail safe. What I liked about it is it presented things differently than Lindeberg, in case I didn't understand where Lindeberg was coming from.
7. I HATE CONVERSIONS, and the test is full of them. If you hate conversions, buy Lindeberg's Engineering Conversions. It is a time saver.
You do not have time to use even all of these references. Just don't show up with a heck of a lot more. You need to drill, drill, drill, on the problems so when you see them on the PE, it is like regurgatation. Lindeberg Hard Cover will covers everything you need to know... this book is your centerpiece!

2nd Edition is Worse than 1st Edition Sept. 22 2012
By ShoresWasTaken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I borrowed my boss' first edition of this book before I bought the second edition. After reviewing each in good detail, it's clear that they are exactly the same content, except for one thing: the 2nd edition has no problems at the end of each chapter. Obviously the publisher wants you to buy the companion problems book. So, to be clear: the 2nd edition is worse than the 1st edition. Even by textbook industry standards, that's pretty bad!

Yet, you need this book for the PE. So buy a gently used copy of the first edition and you'll both save money and get a superior product.

Much better alternatives are available April 9 2014
By Mary C. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For about the same total cost, I would recommend buying
LaGrega et al (2001) Hazardous waste management: second edition, Waveland Press
Lee and Lin (2007) Handbook of environmental engineering application: second edition, MCGraw Hill.
My main concern with the Lindeburg book is that it did not include a lot of things on the exam, or at least not in a way I could find. For example, CT values are not listed, while they are in Lee and Lin. Lee and Lin have many worked out problems that are easy to follow. It is much more useful for the exam and for use afterwards than the Lindeburg book.

Very Good Review and Reference Book April 28 2008
By B. Lazar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was very useful in preparing for the PE and serves as a good reference during the exam. I would not bank on it as the only reference, but it serves as a good supporting reference book. There are no example problems in the book, and it simply covers the potential topics that might appear on the test in a very broad sense. It helps to target studying on topics that you might not use everyday or have not seen since undergrad. I recommend the purchase of the book, but would look for a used copy as it is rather pricey!
Good Preparatory Material for PE Exam March 23 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent review material for the Professional Engineering Licensing Exams for Civil and Environmental Engineering. Review the material and concurrently practice the Practice Problems by Michael R. Lindeburg.
