    Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam (CERM15P), 15th Edition

    New Edition. Comprehensive Civil PE Exam Coverage

    The Civil Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive textbook for the NCEES Civil PE exam. This book’s time-tested organization and clear explanations start with the basics to help you get up to speed with common civil engineering concepts. Together, the 90 chapters provide an in-depth review of all of the topics, codes, and standards listed in the NCEES Civil PE exam specifications. The extensive index contains thousands of entries, with multiple entries included for each topic, so you can easily find the codes and concepts you will need during the exam.

    This book features:

    • over 100 appendices containing essential support material

    • over 500 clarifying examples

    • over 550 common civil engineering terms defined in an easy-to-use glossary

    • thousands of equations, figures, and tables

    • industry-standard terminology and nomenclature

    • equal support of U.S. customary and SI units

    The NCEES recently adopted newer editions of the ACI, ASCE, TMS, and MSJC codes for the 2016 construction exam. This adoption occurred post-publication of the Civil Engineering Reference Manual, 15th edition by Michael R. Lindeburg, PE.  For your reference and convenience, we have included a PDF that cross references the 2011 ACI 318 and the 2014 ACI 2014, as well as a PDF with the updates in the reference manual. You may access the PDFs by clicking here.  PPI is committed to supporting you in your efforts towards licensure, and providing the highest-quality content for your preparation.

    After you pass your exam, the Civil Engineering Reference Manual will continue to serve as an invaluable reference throughout your engineering career.

    I passed - first try Review by Emily
    This book was my bible for passing the PE Civil Construction exam. It summarized the concepts from undergrad that had gone a little fuzzy over the years. It was organized well for quick reference during the exam. Don't waste your money on other aids: just this book, a practice exam, and the codes that are recommended by NCEES. I recommend using this in conjunction with a prep course. Nothing beats a professor explaining the written text.

    Post exam, I'm even using it at work every so often. (Posted on 11/17/2016)

    Excellent Review by Salman
    The new edition has significant improvements and it is an excellent resource to prepare for the Civil PE exam. (Posted on 3/9/2016)
