Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer Books for the PE Exam

This page will give my recommendations on thermodynamics and heat transfer books you need for the PE exam.

Thermodynamics

I would recommend having a Thermodynamics book regardless of which depth session you plan on taking.  The breadth section covers enough topics on Thermodynamics to make it useful.  A good Thermodynamics text is essential if you plan on taking the Thermal / Fluid Systems or HVAC / Refrigeration depth session!

Heat Transfer

If you plan on taking the Thermal / Fluid Systems or the HVAC / Refrigeration depth session you are going to want a Heat Transfer textbook.  You could have one if you planned on taking the Mechanical Systems and Materials depth session, but it is not essential.
