My undergraduate was in Geography. My Masters in Environmental Engineering. I am not good at math, and formulas with greek letters still make me tense inside. Having said this, here are the books you need to concentrate on to pass this exam the first time.
1. This book. It needs to be your centerpiece, your touchstone. You need to know this book, and especially the tables and appendices. Location, Location, Location is so important, know where everything is in this book. Make this book part of your life. Travel with it, sit with it, take it on your 10 minute coffee breaks... just know this book.
2. Next: 101 Solved Engineering Problems. This book has the most realistic PE Problems. Do them all. They are categorized by type so you must write the page from Lindeberg next to the problem in this book for quick cross reference. This is your best book for quickly finding an example of what you are trying to solve on the test.
3. Next: Lindeberg Practice Problems. Also good, but not as good as 101 (above). Use this as a reference. It aligns with the Lindeberg Hard Cover for quick cross reference.
4. Last: Environmental Engineering Practice Exams (Schneiter). Do all the problems. It looks like a Lindeberg, but it isn't. Like 101 Solved Problems, you must cross-reference the problems with there topic location in Lindeberg Hard Cover. Questions are not in a particular order (4 practice exams, level about right), but questions are in random order which makes look-up during exam tough.
5. Environmental Law Handbook (Sullivan). Need this for the regulatory, and statutory questions. Find a good OSHA book too.
6. Last: Environmental Engineering Calculations (Lee & Lin). This book is expensive and big, but it is a good fail safe.

I borrowed my boss' first edition of this book before I bought the second edition. After reviewing each in good detail, it's clear that they are exactly the same content, except for one thing: the 2nd edition has no problems at the end of each chapter. Obviously the publisher wants you to buy the companion problems book. So, to be clear: the 2nd edition is worse than the 1st edition. Even by textbook industry standards, that's pretty bad!

Yet, you need this book for the PE. So buy a gently used copy of the first edition and you'll both save money and get a superior product.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
While this text is directed at environmental engineers, it can also be an invaluable resource for all civil engineers in the truest sense. As the author points out, this topic is so massive, so broad that it is impossible to remember all minutia. Therefore, this text can act as both a quick reference and as a comprehensive piece for slow, careful review.

If you are considering upgrading from an earlier text, you may wish to consider those areas that have been revised and expanded upon. Protection of Wetlands, Air Quality, Toxicology, Industrial Hygiene, Health and Safety, Biological Effects of Radiation, Shielding, and Emergency Management are "updated to reflect current environmental practices and standards." Additionally, there are small alterations throughout the text as a whole. Therefore, if you have passed the PE Exam and are considering updating from the first edition to this edition, I believe it to be a nearly necessary purchase (and, perhaps, a burden of this wonderful profession). If you are thinking about the jump from the second edition to this, I would still highly recommend it. Remaining as current as possible makes you a valuable asset and entirely relevant.

Especially for the purpose of the PE Exam, it is essential to know that each topic is presented in a "stand alone" format. This is particularly important since it allows the student to intensely focus in a single area in which he/she believes he/she has a deficit.

When you purchase this text, know that it is an investment in your future. If you are a student, I understand that the price-tag is truly daunting. However, know that there is no other series as committed to helping students and remaining as current and as precise.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a comprehensive reference textbook for the NCEES Environmental PE exam. This book is organized into nine different topics with clear explanations and in-depth review of the common environmental engineering concepts. These concepts are covered in details across 58 chapters, most of which are accompanied with real-world problem examples and solutions.

Topics covered in this textbook:
I) Background and Support - units, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, probability, etc
II) Water Resources #1: Flow of Fluids - fluid properties, statics, parameters, dynamics, hydraulic, etc
III) Water Resources #2: Water and Wastewater Treatment - chemistry, quality, treatment, etc
IV) Air Resources #1: Ventilation - thermodynamics, HVAC, etc
V) Air Resources #2: Combustion and Air Quality
VI) Solid and Hazardous Waste - solid waste, pollutants, hazardous waste disposition, remediation
VII) Environmental Health, Safety and Welfare
VIII) Systems, Management and Professional - electrical systems, instrumentation, project management, professional services & ethnics
IX) Support Materials - tons of appendices and glossary

The Environmental Engineering Reference Manual should be the key centerpiece in your library for the PE exam. It contains a detailed review of the important environmental engineering concepts that are relevant to the NCEES Environmental PE exam specification. As a reference manual, it has only a limited number of examples, just enough to illustrate each concept. Therefore, you would want to find additional exam practice books with more and more real-world problems to drill on.
