Don't try to take the FS or PS test without studying this book. If you can do the problems in this, you can pass. It covers many categories of questions and is broken into sections (math, advanced math, hydrology, photogrammetry, vertical curves, boundary law, etc.), which lets you study the subjects where you consider yourself weakest. Great example questions and the answer key has good explanations with the answers. I took the FS in October 2012 and passed on the first try. I took the PS in April 2013 (still waiting for results) and I'm very sure I passed. This was the first time the PS was closed book, so I was one of the test dummies I guess.

Definitely worth the money. Wish it had cost a little less, that's the reason for 4 stars not 5. Still bought it and still worth it though.

EXCELLENT

I didn't do a lot of the problems in this book, but there are chapters that are great for review -concerning plss, subdivision, and boundary law. I passed on the first, thanks to reading questions and answers in this book for review.

I bought this book ("Surveying Solved Problems for the FS and PS Exams") because my land surveying professor recommended it in preparing for my PLS exam in Oregon. I have been studyin it consistently for over a month now and it has refreshed my memory on a lot of subjects including horizontal/vertical curves, land survey law, public land survey system, legal descriptions, plats/mapping, geodetic surveys etc. I would recommend this to any person trying to pass the FS or PS examination. I have noticed several typos/wrong answers but the concepts are presented in a well manner.

Thought it was a good representation of questions that could be found on the exam.

Best study book for the NCEES surveying tests there is. Work through this book until you can score 80+% in each section and you can take the national test with confidence.

This book helped me pass the FS test. The test is hard partly because it is so random, but this book helped by hammering in the basics of trigonometry, along with photogrammetry, and surveying procedures.
Last summer, when I graduated with an associate degree in land surveying, I have been trying to get a hold of the second edition, 1001 Solved Surveying Fundamentals Problems, 2nd ed., since that was all I had ever heard of, but I always found it no less that $400 dollars which is a rip-off. Finally I saw a link that said there was a third edition, this book, for less than a hundred. I was skeptical, but it is just as good. (Yes, I have used the second edition and know the comparison) So unless you are really into antique collecting, just get this book.
