Anybody know if this reference is worth buying to take to the PE Exam? I have the Standard Handbook and the EnvERM. just wondering if this is a waste of money.

No, that just means we never heard of it. It may be the single best reference in the world, but until someone gets on here and tells us about it from personal use, we'll never know....

Looks like its mainly a dictionary of envl terms. The glossary of your ENVRM should handle most of that.

Don't laugh, but I thought that Intro to Environmental Engineering by Davis and Cornwell had really useful practice problems for the October 2010 exam...Although, the level of difficulty isn't that high, it covers a lot of topics if you're looking to get some extra practice.
