HVAC and Refrigeration References: MERM

What are the important references for studying? What references should I take into the exam?

Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual (MERM)

The Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual or MERM is the most popular and most comprehensive manual designed for the Mechanical Professional Engineer. It is recommended that the engineer be familiar with the contents of this book and to bring this book to the exam. This book has a lot of information on a wide range of mechanical engineering topics, so it is important to use the NCEES exam specifications and the previously discussed criteria to determine what is important and what isn't important.

Engineering Unit Conversions

Another book related to the MERM is the Engineering Unit Conversions book. This is also another recommended book to use during the exam and while studying for the exam.
