How many references are you bringing?

This. The MERM ones will work but will cost you precious time. Plus there are complete tables that are free, so why not?

YES. I had a copy of some really comprehensive steam tables from college. I did not have to interpolate a single time on the exam. Those are valuable minutes saved.

Forgot to mention: I brought a table of worked-out areas of circles for 0.25" pipe up to 24" pipe. I just made it in Excel. While doing practice problems, I don't ever actually calculate areas for pipe. Might not be for everybody, but why introduce a chance for error?

Well, I'm at the hotel and for my references I've brought along:

MERM

Dr. Tom Binders

Engineering Unit Conversions

It doesn't sound like a lot, but they sure are heavy to lug around.

I think you MDM people don't need to use quite as many tables as us TFS folks. I took MDM the first time around, definitely had no idea what I was doing. Hope that unit conversion book I sent you comes in handy. I'll pray to the MDM gods for you!

Thanks man...I'm probably gonna need all the help I can get!  Sitting in this room is letting doubts creep in and I'm losing confidence by the hour!
