1. Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, published by McGraw-Hill Book Co.
2. Illustrated Encyclopedia Dictionary of Building and Construction Terms, by Hugh Brooks, published by Prentice-Hall (my copy is from 1976 - not sure if it is still published) 
I find the McGraw-Hill dictionary quite thorough (and big and heavy) - I just used it today to look up "comminutor", a sewage treatment term. The second book noted is more limited in scope (didn't have "comminutor" in it, more building related).

I’m looking for a good engineering or scientific dictionary – any recommendations? This would be for everyday use, but also for the P.E. exam in April.

Also, does anyone have advice for a first-timer taking the exam?


Thanks, Jen
