It appears the people who put this book together have not looked at the NCEES website. Approximately 1/3 of this book is dedicated to airport and rail transportation. Subjects other than Transportation are not addressed. Most questions are not in the new test format and solutions are not fully explained. The few tips about the Depth Transportation Exam are buried in narrative and hard to find.
This book was of little value in preparing for the PE exam. It has very general information, lots of full page diagrams and charts and half of the book is appendixes. There are very few questions and the answers are not well explained. It is a narrative about the subject matter not a review of how to work engineering problems not to mention everything was in SI units only. I was very disappointed with this book and do not recommend it.
Don't bother spending money on this reference. It will be of little value preparing for the PE exam. Too much information on airports that will nevber be on the PE exam.
One of the actual exam questions was in this book. I was about to guess the answer, but, I decided to look at this book's index and it was right there.
Straight forward and honest, helped me understand a lot of things I had not before - better than previous reviewer led me to believe!
