The MEI is the easiest test there is. Just take it, you'll pass.

For both my initial multi, and MEI, I was a big fan of Paul Craig's "Multiengine Flying" from the Practical Flying Series. The book I have in my library is the 2nd Edition, but in 2003 they released a 3rd Edition:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0071421394/qid=1124858823/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/104-5908511-9451141?v=glance&s=books

Defintely a good read, easy to understand, and a good reference manual to keep on the bookshelf for the future!

Also, you can never go wrong with the $10 ASA's "Multi-Engine Oral Exam Guide." There is rarely questions asked on a check ride that's not in that book! It's an easy to read Q & A style format, and good for having other people quiz you to make sure you really know your stuff!

I second the ASA oral exam guide.

I liked the jeppessen multi engine manual. It was about $50 though

Yeah that ^


Also helpful is finding an instructor who has experience to sit and have an oral. I've found that the 100 hr MEI understands and teaches, but the 300 hr MEI corrolates.

Havig an instructor help you learn Vmc factors is much different than having an instructor help you understand Vmc factors. I can't tell you how many multi pilots I talk with who can list off the factors but don't recognize the relationship between them. The comparason can be made that pilots know that wake turbulence is greatest when a plane is heavy, clean and slow - but they don't know why. My suggestion is to ask around until you find someone to help you know the why.

These books are great, but they never break down the concepts to a correlative level.

The only difference I see is that one has an "n", and one does not...and that depends on what your definition of "n", is.

Like the tried and true theory....

Increase angle of attack....increase P-factor....increase Yaw...increase vmc....

See I learned a little something from it all...lol
