All in one Civil Engineering PE Breadth and Depth by Indranil Goswami is another good book on Civil PE Exam. If I compare between CERM and this book I can say, CERM is of the classic type book which contains all kinds of information, both necessary and unnecessary. But the book written by Indranil Goswami is full of only necessary information and therefore the volume is not as much of the CERM. I will suggest this book to that engineer who has a budget constraint for buying PE exam preparation books. This book is budget friendly as its price is much lower than CERM. This is the reason this book became one of the Amazon bestsellers in the same category and recently the demand for this book is going up.
