I didn't really find this helpful as a study guide.
It's more of a referance manual/encyclopedia. I did find that I used it much more during the test than I expected.

Edited to add: I passed! I wasn't sure if I'd passed or not (the test was HARD), and so I believe I probably only passed by a small margin. There were a handful of problems I wouldn't have been able to solve without this reference. Therefore, I would have failed without this referance. So it gets my full recommendation!

This is a wonderful book to have of you are taking the NCEES proctored Mechanical Engineering PE Exam. Just about every topic you need for the exam is covered in simple, but effective manners. The references in the appendices are great. Steam tables for common materials, fatigue tables, material properties, statistics constant tables, etc. This book and a stack of notes from review classes were all I brought to the PE exam. I never used the notes and passed the exam the first time. Make sure to ...more

I took the HVAC test in April 2011 and PASSED!!.
I used this book for 75% of the test and ASHRAE fundamentals for 15% and didn't have the right book with me for the last 10%. I bought the problems book and read all the HVAC and thermal chapters and worked thru the problems. I just glossed over the machine design and didn't read all of the general chapters in the back except the electrical. The electrical came in really handy and I should have read the engineering economy chapter. It worked great
