Comprehensive Reference Manual for the NCEES PE Mechanical Exams

The Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive textbook for the three NCEES PE Mechanical exams: HVAC and Refrigeration, Machine Design and Materials, Thermal and Fluid Systems. This book’s time-tested organization and clear explanations start with the basics to help you quickly get up to speed on common mechanical engineering concepts. Together, the 75 chapters provide an in-depth review of the PE Mechanical exam topics and the NCEES Handbook.

Michael R. Lindeburg’s Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual has undergone an intensive transformation in this 14th edition to ensure focused study for success on the 2020 NCEES computer-based tests (CBT). As of April 2020, exams are offered year-round at approved Pearson Vue testing centers. The only resource examinees can use during the test is the NCEES PE Mechanical Reference Handbook. To succeed on exam day, you need to know how to solve problems using that resource. The Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual, 14th Edition makes that connection for you by using only NCEES equations in the review and problem solving.
