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.

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.

A "Must Have"!!! Feb. 2 2015
By HYATT - AMAZON BUYER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I will first say that i do not work daily in the field of engineering. However, I have studied, researched, read and have several friends and family members that do earn a living in this area. This is one of the best written books on the subject of Environmental Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam (Hardcover – November 18, 2014.)

I enjoy all of Michael R Lindeburg's manuals, practice books and encourage anyone to that will take the PE Exam to buy or borrow this one in particular. "The Environmental Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive textbook for the NCEES Environmental PE exam. This book’s time-tested organization and clear explanations start with the basics to help you quickly get up to speed with common environmental engineering concepts.

Together, the 58 chapters provide an in-depth review of important topics from the NCEES Environmental PE exam specifications. The extensive index contains thousands of entries, with multiple entries included for each topic, so you'll find what you're looking for no matter how you search.
This book features:
* over 100 appendices containing essential support material
* over 500 clarifying examples
* thousands of equations, figures, and tables
* industry-standard terminology and nomenclature
* equal support of U.S. customary and SI units

After you pass your exam, the Environmental Engineering Reference Manual will continue to serve as an invaluable reference throughout your environmental engineering career."

This book is complete and covers everything while using industry terms and words. I have a daughter that wants to go into some similar type of career and she even reads it during her spare time in high school.
Great encyclopedic coverage and presentation of material Jan. 30 2015
By J. M WILINSKY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is a huge(1216 pages), encyclopedic work with essentially every aspect of engineering science in general and environmental engineering specifically. The level is mostly undergraduate. Even though a broad range of topics is covered, space is given to good explanations of topics, and extra space is given for the more difficult topics. There are plenty of illustrations, tables, and graphs. There is a generous appendix and glossary, and a decent index. This book delivers what is promised. There are no exercises or sample tests so those must be obtained separately. Such additional material is provided in the companion books:

Practice Problems for the Environmental Engineering PE Exam: A Companion to the Environmental Engineering Reference Manual(2nd Edition), by Michael R. Lindeburg.

Environmental Engineering Practice PE Exams, 3rd ed, by Wane Schneiter.

Environmental Engineering Solved Problems, by Wane Schneiter.

(All of the above published by the same publisher: Professional Publications, Inc.)

This manual also includes lots of material on the PE exam itself and PE licenses.
I found only two aspects of this book disappointing, but in no way is it the fault of the author. It is the fault of the publisher. This book costs plenty and we should expect to get our money's worth. While the look and visual presentation are very good, there is no color at all, not a stitch. Also, a book this big should have a good binding to prevent it from falling apart. This binding is just a glued binding, not sewn in signature. Sorry to expect quality beyond what the author supplies.
Excellent Book For Exam Prep and For Day To Day Work. Jan. 23 2015
By J. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This book is intended to be used in preparation for the PE Exam. It is also intended as a reference for daily work as stated in the preface. The third edition starts off by describing what the exam consists of such as question format, subjects covered, and how to prepare for it. The first twelve chapters describe mathematics needed. Chapter 13 is on energy, Chapters 14-17 describe fluid properties and statics and dynamics of. Chap 20 discusses Meterology and Climatology. The remaining chapters cover water supply and treatment, HVAC, air quality, municipal waste, environment, toxicology, biological effects of radiation, and health and safety. In the back of the book are a wealth of appendices with just about all the information you can think of. This book truly is a reference.

The book is laid out in a logical order and covers the subjects thoroughly - using lots of math when needed. For a technical book I consider it to be well written and about as understandable as it can be made.

The only con I can see is that practice problems are not included and and an additional book must be purchased. There may be a good reason for doing that though as this book is already jammed packed with information as it is.

All in all this book is excellent and is highly recommended.
