4The best option for practice problems
Just as with the CERM, this is way more in-depth and involved than needed to pass the exam. The majority of the problems (not just the ones that say "one hour" are much more time-consuming than the problems on the test. You have to pick and choose what problems you are going to do, because trying to do them all will get you a divorce and a trip to the psychiatric ward. That said, this is still your best option for getting as many practice problems in as many fields as possible, since buying the 6 minute solutions for each of the 5 fields will really hurt your wallet. My advice, do a couple problems from each section you review in the CERM, then move on. Get to the practice tests earlier in your studies, you can always come back for further review if necessary.

3Thorough but overwhelming
By Christopher J Marini
Book is extremely thorough, but also overwhelming and problems are more complicated than actual test. I crammed for the PE exam without ever using this book (due to overwhelming nature and lack of time) and fortunately still passed (with extreme amount of luck and I'm honestly an extremely good test taker). So quite frankly, I'm glad I did not waste time trying to solve problems in this book, but if I had, then I'd be an even more informed engineer and nothing wrong with that!

1Would NOT recommend using it to study for the exam
By Jeff Skalberg
Practice problems are EXTREMELY more difficult than the PE Exam. Would NOT recommend using it to study for the exam. Also a lot of changes have happened since the publication of this book. Especially in the transportation area (HCM). If you decide to get this book, and become frustrated, just move on to another study source.
