Format: Hardcover
FYI, don't bother with this book - it doesn't come close to the competence of CERM7, is about 30% bigger than it needs to be because of the 14-pt type, many of the graphics are illegible, one of the CD's is only a duplicate of the text in the book (the other is a timed version of a good reference, but you can't print it, so it's not worth much), and the "depth" of the book is pretty thirsty at best. If you can pass the exam w/ this book as it advertises, then you don't need to study because you already know it all. Save you money - McGraw Hill is cutting and pasting it's way into your wallet if you buy this book.

My hope was to find a book with example problems that reflect the new PE exam format. This book has no end of chapter problems at all. And from what I read there was no difference in the depth and breadth sections. I did a side-by-side comparison of the environmental stuff and it was word for word. As far as I can tell the only thing the depth section (which is on CD) gives you is a bunch of charts you'll never use.

I have only been through half of the text portion of the book and am extremely disappointed and appalled at the number of errors found in the sample problems. Whether the errors are typos or computational, I don't think anyone can or should trust that what they try to review. Do not waste your money in buying this book.

The book is full of errors. It is hard to follow, even harder to reference to during the Exam. There is nearly not enough information to got a decent overview of some of the more difficult material. It was a complete waste of money for me.
I recommend the Lindeburg book.
