The book isn't perfect. You will find errata. Most of it is covered in the errata sheets on ppi2pass. Take an hour to look at the errata sheet and transfer the corrections to the book.
All in all, if you read each chapter and then work the associated practice problems, you should be able to pass the exam. The nice thing about this book is the fact that it is up to date with the exam. This is not true of some of the review classes you can take. I paid $1,750 for a class at Renssalaer in Hartford. I should have just taken the money and flushed it down the drain. The class was out-dated (the teacher kept giving examples of problems he remembered from when each question was 1 hour long). He also kept teaching us subjects and then saying "You probably won't see this on the exam". Talk about a waste of time. Also, the class claimed that the Lindeburg book was the official text. It wasn't. The official text was a 3 ring binder full of the teachers barely readable (they were copies of copies of copies of copies....) notes. Anyway, enough ranting about that. If you want to take a class, make sure you talk to someone who's taken it before, and make sure it teaches out of the Lindeburg book.
Also, as soon as you start studying, buy an approved calculator.Read more ›
The first page of this manual is conversion factors. I'd recommend adding to this list as you are studying because it is not all-inclusive and many of the exam questions try to trip you up by giving you information in 'strange' units. For instance, they'll give you power in kW and expect an answer in ft/min or they'll give pressure in inches of water and you'll need to convert it to atmospheres. The second page is physical constants like air density and the universal gas constant, R. Add to this list as you study along because the exam will expect you to know the other 'constants' such as the density of steel, aluminum, and concrete.Read more ›

Fantastic reference. One caveat: watch for missing pages. Mine had a dozen or so pages that were missing (First printing). This may have been corrected in a later printing. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Alexander Chapman
