5.0 out of 5 stars FOR NON-UNDERGRADUTE ENGINEERS June 18, 2004
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Edition is Worse than 1st Edition September 22, 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Review and Reference Book April 28, 2008
This book was very useful in preparing for the PE and serves as a good reference during the exam. I would not bank on it as the only reference, but it serves as a good supporting reference book. There are no example problems in the book, and it simply covers the potential topics that might appear on the test in a very broad sense. It helps to target studying on topics that you might not use everyday or have not seen since undergrad. I recommend the purchase of the book, but would look for a used copy as it is rather pricey!

1.0 out of 5 stars Much better alternatives are available April 9, 2014
For about the same total cost, I would recommend buying
LaGrega et al (2001) Hazardous waste management: second edition, Waveland Press
Lee and Lin (2007) Handbook of environmental engineering application: second edition, MCGraw Hill.
My main concern with the Lindeburg book is that it did not include a lot of things on the exam, or at least not in a way I could find. For example, CT values are not listed, while they are in Lee and Lin. Lee and Lin have many worked out problems that are easy to follow. It is much more useful for the exam and for use afterwards than the Lindeburg book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Primary reference for PE exam May 8, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
