Introduction

PART 1: HOW YOU CAN USE THIS BOOK

QUICKSTART

If you never read the material at the front of your books anyway, and if you’re in a hurry to begin and only want to read one paragraph, here it is:

Most chapters in this book are independent. Start with any one and look through it. Use the index extensively. Decide if you are going to work problems in that topic. If so, solve as many problems in that topic as time allows. Don’t stop studying until the exam. Start right now! Quickly! Good luck.

However, if you want to begin a thorough review, you should probably try to find out everything there is to know about the PE exam. The rest of this Introduction is for you.


IF YOU ARE A PRACTICING ENGINEER

If you are a practicing engineer and have obtained this book as a general reference handbook, it will probably sit in your bookcase until you have a specific need.

However, if you are preparing for the PE examination in environmental engineering, the following suggestions may help.
  • Find out the current edition of this book. You might be reading this book long after it was published. Newer editions mean that older editions are no longer appropriate for the current exam. Newer editions mean that the codes, standards, and regulations on which the exam is based are not represented in the older edition, that the exam body of knowledge has changed, and/ or the exam format and policies have changed. New editions are published for a reason, and it’s not reasonable for you to expect the older edition to serve your needs when it is out of date.

4Excellent review of engineering concepts
By MARIO CASTANEDA-M
Excellent review of engineering concepts. Very objective, but lacks finalize details in the process of calculations that will lose who does not have a solid foundation. Total is for engineers, who have approved these courses.

5Primary reference for PE exam
By baccusspb
I took three books to the Environmental PE exam - this one, the Civil Engineering reference, and the provided (downloadable) FE reference book. The Environmental PE exam was 100 questions. I used the Environmental reference for about 75 of the questions. I needed the Civil Reference for about 15 questions. I needed the FE reference for two of the questions. There were about 8 questions where I did not know where to look for the formulae, so had to guestimate.
