Expected more from SPE
I purchased this in order to prep for the PE exam, found problems that did not ask what to solve for, errors in formulas, math errors, conflicting methodology with other resources from SPE. Also, my biggest gripe, all answers are directly below the question, forcing the reader to "cover up" the answer while reading the problem, answers in an appendix would be much more beneficial. Lastly, since this is 2016, hoping that SPE puts out a revised, corrected and answers in the back version soon.

Exmple Problems
I bought this book mainly for the example problems since this is the only book that I could find on the market for test prep. I found that within reading the first couple of questions that there were numerous typos, missing tables and drawings, solutions that had errors in them, solutions using equations not in the SPE PE exam reference guide, and some solutions that did not even tell you what the correct answer was. I hope to find more practice tests somewhere and hope that the SPE study sessions are helpful.
