Of all the PE exams, more people take the civil than any other discipline. The eight-hour, open-book, multiple-choice exam is given every April and October. The exam format is breadth-and-depth -- all examinees are tested on the breadth of civil engineering in the morning session; in the afternoon, they select one of five specialties to be tested on in-depth. Our civil PE books are current with the exam; they reflect the new format, and they reference all the same codes used on the exam.Quick Reference, which facilitates finding formulas during the exam; and subject-specific reviews on the complex areas of bridge and timber design. -- Organizes all important formulas for fast access during the exam -- Corresponds to topics in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual, 8th ed.
Here is a comprehensive guide and reference to assist civil engineers preparing for the Structural Engineer Examination.
