Book Description



Comprehensive Chemical Engineering Coverage You Can Trust.

The Chemical Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive textbook for the Chemical PE exam. This book’s time-tested organization and clear explanations start with the basics to help you quickly get back up to speed with common chemical engineering concepts. Together, the 66 chapters provide an in-depth review of NCEES Chemical PE exam topics.

Numerous features in this reference are designed to help you quickly find what you’re looking for. The index contains thousands of terms, most indexed in multiple ways, in anticipation of how you’ll search for them. Cross-references to hundreds of equations, figures, and tables guide you to related support material.

Features of the Chemical Engineering Reference Manual
  •  Over 60 appendices containing essential support material
  •     Over 350 clarifying example problems
  •     Thousands of equations, figures, and tables
  •     Industry-standard terminology and nomenclature
  •     Equal support of U.S. customary and SI units

Once you pass your exam, the Chemical Engineering Reference Manual will continue to serve as an invaluable reference throughout your chemical engineering career.
Topics Covered:

  • Fluids
  • Thermodynamics
  • Heat Transfer
  • Environmental
  • Mass Transfer
  • Kinetics
  • Plant Design
  • Law and Ethics
The book starts with a math review to get you up to speed with algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, and statistical analysis. Many solved example problems reinforce the concepts covered. Whatever you need to review, chances are excellent you'll find it here.

Hundreds of tables, charts, and figures make this an all-in-one resource for the exam. The cross-referenced index guarantees that during the exam you'll find information quickly and easily.

2It does a decent job of collecting useful formulas/equations, but I feel like the same content ...
By Myself
This publisher has released half a dozen books in this series, for various major (Mechanical engineering, civil engineer, chemical engineering, etc). As a result, this book contains a huge amount of material that's mostly relevant to the other exams. The chemical engineering specific portions are fairly thin, and could use more detail.

In particular, the kinetics section was only 5 pages, 1 of which was a glossary page for common terms. It does a decent job of collecting useful formulas/equations, but I feel like the same content could have been presented in 1/3 the pages for 1/3 the price.

Buy a used copy if you can get one, it isn't worth the full price.

1Good content so far but TERRIBLE build quality
By letsPretz
You know, if you pay $250 for a book, you would probably expect quality. I have only been studying the content for a few days, so it is difficult for me to judge this too harshly, but see attached photo for what my book started to look like after about an hour of studying. This book needs to be a hard cover, plain and simple. Does Perry's come in a paperback? No. This book was meant to be a reference that you keep forever, not some cheap Sparknotes "Chemical PE Exam for Dummies."

Unfortunately, you don't really have a choice. This has the best content for studying for the PE exam, so you kind of have to buy it. The publisher probably knows this. But I'm hoping that by giving it 1 star, they will realize that content isn't everything.

Look, I get that a hard cover would make the book more expensive, and potentially super heavy. But this is basically unusable. You can't sell a book with a paper-thin cover that tears from CAREFULLY opening and closing it. I treat all my books like they descended from heaven. This one looks like it ascended from a landfill.

4Solid study outline and reference manual
By Rachel Brenc
If you were like me and sold your textbooks back in college, this book will help you pass the PE exam. It won't be your only book: a little light on reaction kinetics, and Perry's will have a good chunk of the answers as well, but overall a great reference. I used it as a study outline and then as a reference manual during the exam. Had no binding problems like one of the previous reviewers. Also holds its re-sale value, making the price sting a little bit less.
