Young engineers who want to be licensed in their particular field rely on the test-taking tips in books by Michael R. Lindeburg, PE. He has written over 35 books on engineering, many of them specifically on exam preparation. Lindeburg, the acknowledged authority on exam taking manuals for engineering, has written three definitive books for this purpose. "Engineer-In Training Reference Manual" (3rd ed., 1996) has been the leading resource for over 250,000 engineers preparing for the FE/EIT exam. For over 20 years this book has been praised for its clear comprehensive coverage and excellent index. "Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual For The PE Exam" (10th ed., 1997) discusses all exam subjects with 342 reinforcing practice problems and illustrations, tables, figures and formulas. EIT Review manual: "Rapid Preparation For The General Fundamentals of Engineering Exam: Current For The 1998-1999 Exam"(1998) outsells all other similar works combined and contains a money back guarantee. If readers do not pass the exam after using this cram course manual with 900 practice problems and a complete eight-hour practice exam, the publisher will refund their money. Lindeburg's other books include "Getting Started As A Consulting Engineer"(1994), "Fire And Explosion Protection Systems: A Design Professionals Introduction" (1995), and "1001 Solved Engineering Fundamentals Problems" (1997). Michael R. Lindenburg graduated from Stanford University with B.S and M.S. degrees in industrial engineering. As founder and president of the Professional Engineering Institute, he has taught and supervised hundreds of engineering review courses.
