From the Author:

HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DR. FRIEBEL AS A PE CIVIL REVIEW INSTRUCTOR AND THE NEED TO BRING A DICTIONARY TO THE EXAM:

"Yes, I used your dictionary about 5 times. There were questions about bacteria in water and environmental terms I had never heard of."

"My afternoon discipline was geotechnical. I did use a dictionary- your dictionary in fact. I can't remember what I looked up, but I do remember getting two or three answers from the book."

"I brought a dictionary. My feeling about the dictionary is simple, if there's a 1% chance I can use it to get 1 question right I am taking it with me.  I will not get an easy question wrong because I was too lazy to bring it.  If I didn't have one I would have certainly bought one.  Passing the PE will help me get a raise, which would have covered the cost of a dictionary anyway."

"Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know I passed the PE. Hoorayy!! Anyways just wanted to thank you and feel your class was the force that was needed to get those extra points and pass the test.  Your book was used on a few questions and I'm sure those few questions helped me get to a passing grades."

"I used it to confirm 2 morning questions and 4 afternoon! I really felt it was a must have for the afternoon especially to help with those environmental terms."

"I'm really glad your dictionary was helpful!  I used a scientific dictionary on my first attempt and it didn't help with any words I looked up."

"I used it on the NCEES practice exam and it was helpful."

"I tabbed your dictionary and the CERM's appendix with little tabs that have the alphabet. Probably saved me a few minutes at the end when I was scrambling for answers!"

"With regards to a dictionary, Dr. Friebel, you were correct. It gave me the answer to at least 4 problems by definition only, and another 2 questions by showing which answers were incorrect, so I definitely recommend continuing to push any test takers to pick up a separate dictionary of some sort."

"Dr. Friebel provided some great test taking tips, which I will use on the exam. Although I am not taking the depth in Water, he was able to provide great tips to complete the breadth section along with tips to pass any depth section. Great Instructor!!!!!"

"Some 3-4 questions were answered straight out of the dictionary - thanks Dr. Friebel."

"I had the NCEES water resources topics for the morning exam and material and Dr. Friebel covered all subjects. He explained subjects like we were in High School, I like it...That's how you do it. He is very fresh in his ideas."

"Thank you Dr. Friebel, I brought in a dictionary and I used it twice!"

"Dr. Friebel is the best in my opinion. He was clear, concise and demonstrated profound knowledge of the subject area. He explained the problems with emphasis on how to think through and solve them with a level that I never would have been able to see on my own. I'm going into this exam very, very confident in my ability to solve Water Resource problems."

"Bring a good dictionary.  I was able to look up a few environmental terms that helped me on a few problems - easy points!

"Professor Friebel's presentation was very straight-forward and helpful, a great review as someone who has a background in the field and will be taking it for the PM depth section. Thank you!"

"Dr. Friebel said, ``Take an engineering dictionary.''  Guess what?  There were about three problems that were answered by simply reading a definition from the dictionary."

"Not only did Dr. Friebel know the material, he was able to teach it to the students so we understood it. He applied everything we learned to the PE test. He gave us test taking tips. He was by far one of the best teachers I have had."

"Dr. Friebel recommended I bring a good dictionary and I am glad I did, I needed it."

"This is my problem area and Dr. Friebel really helped me not be ``fearful of the subject."

"Subject material was very hard for me personally, but Dr. Friebel was able to break it down in a way that made it much easier. Great instructor! He's really there to help the students."

"Great advice to bring a dictionary to the exam; I answered three questions correctly because of your advice. Many times an exam question will simply ask for the definition of a word. All you have to do is look it up in the dictionary!"

"I am taking the Water Resources/Env. depth examination. Dr. Friebel was incredibly helpful. His teaching methods were fantastic."

"Dr. Friebel knew the material very well, communicated it to the class well and made the class enjoyable. I have not done any water resource work since college and I now feel like I have a very good general understanding of the subject and will do well with any questions on the exam."

"Dr. Friebel was very straight-forward and understandable. I feel very confident and ready to ace the Water Resource/Env. section."

"Dr. Friebel's lecture style was excellent. He assumed that the topics he covered were new to all of us, giving us a chance to better understand the key topics."

"I thought Dr. Friebel was an excellent instructor. He taught in such a manner which made water resource/environmental easy to understand. He was GREAT!"
