I just took the last PE exam and found this book to be helpful. You'll really need to buckle down and read through it though. If you want to pass, I suggest bringing a minimum of three reference books. This book, Hiner's book and the ASCE 7-05. I brought the IBC but didn't have to use it. This book along with Hinder's had most of the references that I needed. Some questions required the ASCE 7-05. I didn't have the ASCE 7-05 :(In any case I was able to pass by studying through this WHOLE book and Hiner's WHOLE book. I didn't take any classes.Good Luck to you all.

I used it to review seismic design for the PE exam. I've used it recently for background info on an earthquake design project.

Not very helpful for PE (Structural depth) Exam...I bought it for my PE exam but not used it. I do not recommend this to anybody.
