Book Description

If you have ever struggled with converting grams to slugs, centistokes to square feet per second, or pounds per million gallons (lbm/MG) to milligrams per liter (mg/L), you will appreciate the time-saving value of this book. More than 4500 entries covering traditional English, conventional metric, and SI units in the fields of civil, mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineering make conversions a snap.


Since 1975 more than 2 million people preparing for their engineering, surveying, architecture, LEED®, interior design, and landscape architecture exams have entrusted their exam prep to PPI. For more information, visit us at

5PE Exam Must-Have
By Tom
Like I said, PE Exam Must-Have.
This book contains all the units you never knew you wanted to convert. Got rpm, need rad/s, easy. But, that IS an easy one. What about gram-cal-cm/cm^2-sec-°C? You can convert it to Btu-ft/ft^2-hr-°F without breaking a sweat.
During the test I reached for it constantly. Leave it out of your PE library at your own peril.
One last note, once you get this, take it to your local copy & print and have it spiral bound. It will be MUCH easier to use.

5A Must Have For Any Engineer
By Kyle
This book is a must have if you are preparing to take the PE Exam. I used it frequently during my preparation and the test to perform quick unit conversions. The books gives you a base unit and then a multiplier to obtain a different unit. It saves me tons of time, and time is of the essence on this test so every second you can spare is well worth it. I even use it in my day job and is especially useful when making jumps between SI and US units like going from HP to KW-Hr. This should be a part of any engineers reference library.

5A Must for the PE Exam and a Great Addition to Any Engineer Library
By mikecart1
Sure you can look up any unit conversion on the internet. But you can't do that for the PE Exam. This book is great. Unfortunately I didn't have it for the test (that I passed in April 2012) as I thought I could do well with my own unit pamphlet I made myself. But I did see where this book could easily help you solve at least 5 problems on the exam easier and quicker and more accurately. For an exam that is pass or fail, and considered one of the hardest tests anyone can take in the world, and many people are near that minimum passing score mark, this is a huge must. The book is small but it does include every single conversion you could possibly want to know (or at least I would want to know) and it makes doing exam problems a lot quicker.

As for life after the PE exam, this is great to use for general engineering problems. It isn't that expensive like the other PE textbooks. Maybe you are out in the field and you don't have your computer with you and want to know the conversion of something, this is great.
