With the growing opportunities for consultants in the engineering field, more and more engineers are establishing their professional credentials through P.E. certification. This concise yet thorough exam preparation guide helps chemical engineers organize their review, cover all the required topics, and master the subject matter covered in the professional engineering exam. Based on a P.E. preparatory course Dr. Crockett has taught and perfected over the last ten years, Chemical Engineering: A Review for the P.E. Exam is the only review that follows the recommended format and subject emphasis set forth in the latest NCEE guidelines. It leads engineers step-by-step through all the engineering topics and question formats used in the exam. Each chapter follows a uniform order: discussion of topic, problems, problem-solving strategies, and solutions. The guide offers detailed coverage of thermodynamics, process design, mass transfer, heat transfer, chemical kinetics, fluid flow, and engineering economics. The bottom line: Every chemical engineer who has used this book has passed the P.E. exam. And while designed primarily as a review for test-takers, Chemical Engineering also serves as an ideal refresher on the basics for all chemical engineers.
